  • Medication is used in both detoxification and deaddiction phases of treatment.
  • They help improve the way your brain uses certain chemicals that control withdrawal symptoms and cravings.
  • Sometimes, antidepressant medications and sedatives (benzodiazepines) are added in the initial phases to control the symptoms quickly.
  • Medication duration depends on multiple factors like total duration of symptom use, genetic loading, coexisting depression or anxiety etc and is hence best decided by the treating doctor.
  • Do not stop taking the medication without the help of a doctor.
