“Over a year ago, I began my journey at Alternative to Meds Center hoping to get relief. I had been ignorant to the risks of prescription drugs, not only the long term issues but addictive properties and problematic withdrawal. I was on 15 drugs in one year after withdrawing from Effexor too fast. In the process, I became dependent on Klonopin which should be consumed for a maximum of 2 months. They kept me on it for more than 1 year. My life declined in ways I could never have thought of due to Rx drugs. With psychological help and supplementation, now I am drug-free and headed to fight my medication dependence and heal myself. I feel that programs like ATMC are essential and worth fighting for as you are able to discontinue meds the correct way. My life has been changed. I am finding myself again.”Anonymous
Do you wish to end side effects, but you are afraid of withdrawal effects and returning symptoms?
The professional sedative side effects treatment at Alternative to Meds Center not only alleviates side effects and withdrawal symptoms, but also addresses the underlying issues that originally led to sedative use. One of the many side effects of sedatives that are of greatest concern is intoxication. Sedative intoxication symptoms are characterized by showing certain psychosocial symptoms such as aggression or hostility, mood swings, inappropriate sexual behavior, poor judgment, and inability to function at work or in social settings. Sedative intoxication symptoms can appear to be remarkably similar to alcohol intoxication. Overdose is another side effect of serious concern, sedative overdoses can be fatal. These drugs depress the central nervous system, so some of the physical side effects of sedatives include slurred speech, inattentiveness, and lack of coordination, memory impairment, blackouts, coma, stupor and extreme sluggishness.
You do not have to continue the struggle with side effects. There are effectual, alternative solutions available.
Naturally, since these medications are sedating; a trademark side effect is sleepiness, or tiredness, sluggishness, laziness and other similar tranquilizing side effects. Another natural side effect of these drugs is that many people like the feelings of the tranquilizing effects. This side effect can easily turn into dependence or addiction, and ultimately sedative withdrawal. Sedative withdrawal is known to be able to cause drug-induced mental disorders such as drug induced persisting dementia, persisting amnesia, psychosis, anxiety, insomnia, sexual dysfunction, and mood disorders. These disorders can be induced by just regular use, but are particularly amplified during withdrawal. Alternative to Meds Center knows how to professionally handle side effects and withdrawal from sedatives, as well as the causes of the symptoms that resulted in sedative use.
We are able to help people eliminate side effects, overcome withdrawal and continue life without unending problems.
Addiction or dependency to these drugs along with withdrawal can certainly be considered side effects of regular use as these drugs have a high risk of developing a dependency, and when the drug is discontinued, withdrawal symptoms emerge. Sedative problems of withdrawal are almost the reverse of what the symptoms of intoxication are, withdrawal side effects include increased blood pressure, increased body temperature, increased heart rate, faster breathing (hyperventilation), shakiness, insomnia, restlessness, abnormal sweating, nausea and anxiety. Sedative withdrawal effects such as the ones listed above can be vastly alleviated with professional sedative side effects help.
We uncover and correct any underlying causes of symptoms that resulted in sedative use.
Most people who are prescribed these drugs take them responsibly and have no intentions of forming a dependency. Dependency forms from a physical addiction to sedating medications, sedating medications are often prescribed for pain and many people become dependent on them to relieve their pain. Severe side effects such as overdose usually only occur when someone is increasing their sedative dosage to abusive amounts. Many people who abuse these drugs take them in conjunction with other drugs, which heightens the risk of overdose and is extremely dangerous. The addictive properties and risks of developing a dependency to these drugs make the possibility of addiction a side effect, because whether the drug is being used as prescribed or not; physical dependency usually still forms.
We use methodical approaches to address physical dependence, withdrawal, and side effects.
