AMPHETAMINE WITHDRAWAL

a symptomatic detachment complex that appears soon following one ceasing an extended, substantial usage of an amphetamine or similar compound. The necessary attribute is a depressed state of mind, sometimes extreme, and there might also be tiredness, disrupted rest, a larger appetite, vibrant and upsetting dreams, or psychomotor deceleration or frustration, or every one of these attributes. Marked withdrawal symptoms frequently succeed a bout of extreme, high-dose usage.
