Detox at Home

Hi, I've never posted before, but have been reading for over a year. I stopped drinking again on Mother's day, was a 6 can per day IPA 6.3 ABV or equivalent for many years. Been to rehab once. I wanted to ask if lightheadedness is a problem on day 2. Feels like I took an ADHD pill. Or is this one of the normal symptoms. Maybe too much coffee?

Oh, and I'm regularly on medication that says not to drink with it, but I have not had a problem for months until I stopped drinking. Hmm I'm listening to myself. So the real question is isn't lightheadedness/ anxiety normal or do I really need a doctor now? What is a seizure precursor?

Welcome to SR, Jo. I am not familiar with the precursors of a seizure, but if you are concerned, I recommend you talk with your doctor. Does your doctor know your drinking history and that you recently stopped? I think it's important to have medical supervision. Detox is different for everyone. Some people get through it with not much more than some physical discomfort. For others, it can become a medical emergency. It's always best to see your doctor.

I agree with Suki, JoÖif youíre worried please do see your Dr.

My lightheadedness was linked to high blood pressure - not saying thatís your problem, of course, but itís another reason to get checked out.

Being lightheaded can be due to lots of different circumstances. best to get your doctor's help and advice.

I think is a better idea to have this discussion in person with a Doctor.

Asking a bunch of random people on the internet for their medical advice, doesn't make much sense to me.
