Adrenal problems

  • (See also ‘Adrenaline surges’)
  • Elevated cortisol
  • Cortisol “spikes” when you first wake up (pounding heart, flushing, panicky feeling)
  • (A medical practitioner may suggest taking adrenal supplements; however, many people in the lay withdrawal community report that this can often complicate psychiatric drug withdrawal. It’s said that time is often what helps withdrawal-induced adrenal problems to resolve themselves.)
