Alcohol withdrawal symptoms are the physical and mental effects that are suffered by those addicted to alcohol, if they do not get to drink.
Alcohol withdrawal symptoms range from anxiety, panic attacks, insomnia, sweating, vomiting and diarrhoea. More severely, hallucinations and epileptic fits can also occur.
Withdrawal symptoms reach their maximum after approximately 72 hours and diminish 96 hours after the last consumption of alcohol.
Even though alcohol withdrawal symptoms diminish over time, a sudden stop in drinking could cause brain damage and even be fatal.
Alcohol detox, which involves prescription medicine to ease withdrawal, is the safest way to stop drinking.
The use of sedative medication will be used in order to reduce withdrawal symptoms as well as the danger of suffering a relapse.
