Spice or K2 Withdrawal and Detox

Spice or K2 Withdrawal and DetoxIf you or your loved one become addicted to spice or K2, you must deal with the prospect of withdrawal symptoms if you quit altogether or make quick, major cutbacks in the amount of the drug you consume. People going through this form of withdrawal may experience problems including:

  • Depressed or irritable mood
  • Mild to severe anxiety
  • Headaches
  • Ongoing cravings for more Spice/K2
  • Sleeplessness
  • Declining appetite
  • Nausea and vomiting

They may also face other changes in normal health, including angina (i.e., chest pain), heart palpitations and/or a racing heartbeat, breathing difficulties and repeated seizures.

Synthetic marijuana withdrawal is known for its unpredictability. The severity of symptoms can be linked to the amount of the drug consumed on a regular basis. However, in others, doctors can find no clear link between intake level and specific symptoms. This means that anyone who attempts to quit without professional assistance will have no ability to determine their level of risk or danger. They will also lack the knowledge or resources needed to tackle unexpected health emergencies.

Medical Detox Programs and why you need one

For these reasons, you should only attempt to withdraw from synthetic marijuana under the watchful eye of trained professionals in a medical detox program1. These detoxification specialists will know what to look for in addicted people who stop consuming Spice/K2. They will also know to protect your health if you should develop significant withdrawal complications. Lastly, it will provide you with a level of stability that makes you a good candidate for positive results.

Some of the symptoms you experience while withdrawing from synthetic marijuana may call for the use of medication during the detox process. For example, people who experience anxiety or repeated seizures may receive a stabilizing dose of a benzodiazepine tranquilizer. Tranquilizers may also be used to prevent future occurrence of seizures or anxiety.
