Did anyone else suffer from deep depression after detox??? If so what are some ways that you coped through it? I’m 2 weeks clean off of drugs and about a week clean off of alcohol. I’m really struggling.
Hey there …welcome. I felt like shit for a couple months after detox. But it got better and continues to. Hang in there. Drink lots of water. Try and stay out of your head.
I’m just ahead of you at 23 days off alcohol. I felt the same and remember days 10-15ish were the WORST! I finally had to literally take a chill pill that my doctor prescribed. It’s a low dose of Gabapentin and it helped my tremendously. Cleared up my tight chest and helped with the anxiety. Doc said it’s not addictive and I could take much more than I am without issue so I feel safe about it all. I confirmed this with my own research and I’ve been doing really well for about a week and half. I don’t plan on staying on them forever, or even next month, but for now it’s been a life saver while I learn how to relax on my own.
It helped me to learn that what we’re feeling is normal.
I take anxiety meds as needed! The more time I have clean and sober the less I take them! I was taking every day now just here and there! Glad you found something to help
