The HERBALmax™ Withdrawal Support Formula is designed to help with withdrawal from addictive substances such as drugs, alcohol and tobacco. This carefully selected blend of natural herbs works to alleviate withdrawal symptoms and reduce desire for substance use. By targeting both physical and emotional dependency, the Withdrawal Support Formula progressively reduces reliance on addictive substances.

In Dr. Zhang’s clinical experience, the Withdrawal Support Formula can aid in achieving complete substance independence within only 6-12 weeks. Serious drug addictions may require additional time for complete withdrawal. Unlike many common withdrawal remedies, this formula has no known side effects and has shown no evidence of being habit-forming. Usage can be stopped at any time.

Chronic addictions are often caused by underlying depression or anxiety. Addictive substances may also cause extensive fatigue, depression, and anxiety. Upon overcoming the addiction, Dr. Zhang recommends taking the Anxiety Formula in conjunction with either the Mood & Fatigue Formula or the Depression & Fatigue Formula until you no longer feel you need any additional support.

  • Relieves both physical and psychological dependency
  • Alleviates withdrawal symptoms
  • Non-addictive
  • No known side effects
  • All-natural and vegetarian-friendly

a. Overview

Withdrawal refers to the symptoms associated with the abruptly lessened intake of medications or drugs to which the user has become mentally and/or physically addicted. Symptoms can vary depending on type of addictive substance, length of addiction, timeline of substance discontinuation, and so on. Withdrawal can be extremely traumatic for the body and, in some cases of prolonged addiction, potentially fatal.

Approximately 95% of people experience mild to moderate withdrawal symptoms such as agitation, trembling, insomnia, and lack of appetite. In addition, around one-fifth of those with moderate symptoms experience seizures and hallucinations. Treatment for withdrawal is often woefully inadequate. Patients are typically sent home with a short supply of anti-anxiety medication—less than a week's worth—and told to go to the emergency room if any complications arise.

Alcohol Withdrawal

About 50-60% of alcoholics develop significant withdrawal symptoms upon alcohol cessation.

Early minor symptoms (6-12 hours after alcohol discontinuation):
  • Shaky hands
  • Sweating
  • Mild anxiety
  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Headache
  • Insomnia
Moderate symptoms (12-24 hours after alcohol discontinuation):
  • Alcoholic hallucinosis (visual, auditory or tactile hallucinations)
  • Tremors
  • Agitation
  • Confusion
Delirium tremens, aka “the shakes”, occurring in 5% of those undergoing withdrawal (48-72 hours after alcohol discontinuation):
  • Disorientation, confusion, and severe anxiety
  • Hallucinations (primarily visual) which cannot be distinguished from reality
  • Profuse sweating
  • Seizures
  • High blood pressure
  • Racing and irregular heartbeat
  • Severe tremors
  • Low-grade fever

Opiate Withdrawal

Opiates include heroin, morphine, codeine, Dilaudid, Oxycontin, methadone, and others. While it only takes the body about two days to become dependent upon opiates and opioids, withdrawal from them can last for five to ten days.

Early symptoms of withdrawal include:
  • Agitation
  • Anxiety
  • Muscle aches
  • Increased tearing
  • Insomnia
  • Runny nose
  • Sweating
  • Yawning
Late symptoms of withdrawal include:
  • Abdominal cramping
  • Diarrhea
  • Dilated pupils
  • Goose bumps
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

Antidepressant Withdrawal

Antidepressant withdrawal is milder than opiate withdrawal. One-third of users will experience withdrawal. Symptoms usually occur within three days of antidepressant discontinuation and diminish after two weeks. The most common symptom is anxiety, which encompasses increased heart rate, rapid breathing, and profuse sweating. Other symptoms include:

  • Irritability
  • Depression and mood swings
  • Light-headedness
  • Dizziness and balance problems
  • Electric shock sensations
  • Fatigue
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Headache
  • Loss of coordination
  • Muscle spasms
  • Nausea
  • Nightmares
  • Tremors
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Vomiting

Smoking Withdrawal

Symptoms of nicotine withdrawal may be observed 2-3 hours after last tobacco use, peaking 2-3 days after quitting. Higher levels of nicotine exposure increase the likelihood of experiencing withdrawal symptoms, which include:

  • An intense craving for nicotine
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Drowsiness or trouble sleeping, as well as bad dreams and nightmares
  • Feeling tense, restless, or frustrated
  • Headaches
  • Increased appetite and weight gain
  • Problems concentrating

b. Treatment

Treatment for alcohol withdrawal typically involves benzodiazepines, a common anti-anxiety medication that also carries its own risks of physical dependency and subsequent withdrawal. Benzodiazepines work by inhibiting nerve-cell excitability in the brain. This has the resulting side effect of daytime drowsiness and general hangover symptoms. Additionally, benzodiazepines appear to stimulate eating and can cause weight gain. They interact negatively with several drugs including alcohol and are associated with birth defects. In addition to the risk of physical dependency after two weeks of use, benzodiazepine users also experience a loss of effectiveness over time with continued use at the same dosage. Complete withdrawal from benzodiazepines takes about one month.

Treatment for opiate withdrawal often involves clonidine, a sympathetic nervous system inhibitor often used to treat anxiety. Side effects include lightheadedness, dry mouth, dizziness, constipation, and hypotension (low blood pressure). Pregnant and breastfeeding women should take caution with clonidine and other similar anti-anxiety drugs.

Treatment for smoking cessation can include nicotine replacement therapy. This involves the use of products containing low doses of nicotine in an effort to reduce tobacco cravings. Medicines such as bupropion, varenicline, and clonidine can also help with the cravings and withdrawal symptoms, but come with dangerous side effects such as increased risk of heart attack, stroke, and depression.
