Dopamine withdrawal syndrome can occur when long term cocaine addicts abruptly discontinue use and go into withdrawal. Withdrawing from methamphetamines can cause Dopamine withdrawal symptoms also, among other drugs. Cocaine, methamphetamine, and other drugs all increase levels of Dopamine in the brain. Prescription drugs prescribed for Parkinson’s disease are called Dopamine agonists; these medications also increase brain dopamine levels. Reducing dosages or discontinuing use of the drugs that are prescribed for Parkinson’s disease cause Dopamine agonist withdrawal syndrome, including the same symptoms of withdrawal reported by cocaine and meth addicts.
In the United States there are only two Dopamine agonists available by prescription; Ropinirole (Requip) and Rramipexole (Mirapex). Requip and Mirapex are the primary drugs prescribed to treat Parkinson’s disease. These drugs can be effective medications and they are also prescribed for treatment of restless leg syndrome, depression, and fibromyalgia. It has been discovered that when someone reduces their dosage or stops taking a dopamine agonist medication, they experience acute dopamine agonist withdrawal syndrome. Withdrawing from these medications have similar withdrawal symptoms as cocaine withdrawal including: drug cravings, general feeling of being unwell, generalized pain, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, fatigue, abnormal sweating, dizziness and nausea. These symptoms can be severe and are only alleviated by with Dopamine withdrawal help or re-administration of the agonist medication; other medications for Parkinson’s disease will not alleviate Dopamine withdrawal syndrome.
Even though these medications can be very affective for Parkinson’s disease, there are increasing concerns about the possible side effects from these medications. For some patients, severe side effects emerge from taking these drugs for Parkinson’s disease and other medical conditions. The side effects can cause uncontrolled, compulsive behaviors also known as impulse control disorders. For the percentage of people who experience these side effects, they include: sexual addiction, hyper-sexuality, compulsive gambling addiction, and internet addiction. For those reasons, some people taking these drugs decide to withdraw from them because of the strange and detrimental side effects. By deciding to withdrawal from these medications prescribed for Parkinson’s disease, individuals can experience similar symptoms to what a cocaine addict experiences while in withdrawal. However, with Dopamine withdrawal treatment in our Arizona rehab, these problems can be kept under control and managed effectually.
Doctors, physicians, and drug rehabs must practice extreme caution when deciding to taper their patient off of a dopamine agonist. Even when doing slow taper, some people experience severe symptoms. Tapering down off of the drug is not enough; no one should have to suffer painful withdrawal symptoms just because they have to stop taking medication for Parkinson’s disease. The most comfortable way to endure this process would be to complete a Dopamine withdrawal treatment cessation program. Aside from tapering the person off of the drug that is causing withdrawal, our Sedona withdrawal treatment centers offer many other services to make the person comfortable during withdrawal and forever after. Withdrawing with help alleviates many of the painful withdrawal symptoms. Going this route ensures knowledgeable support and guidance through withdrawal.
