Are yellowish eyes, hand cramps and dry mouth symptoms of alcohol withdrawal?
You are having delerium tremens it common.Take acamprost
You are having delirium tremens and is the most severe form of ethanol withdrawal manifested by altered mental status (global confusion) and sympathetic overdrive (autonomic hyperactivity)
Chronic intake of alcohol affects several neurotransmitter systems in the brain. These effects include (1) increased release of endogenous opiates; (2) activation of the inhibitory gamma-aminobutyric acid-A (GABA-A) receptor producing increased GABA inhibition, with a resultant influx of chloride ions; (3) up-regulation of the postsynaptic N -methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) type of glutamate receptor, which mediates the postsynaptic excitatory effects of glutamate; and (4) interactions with serotonin and dopamine receptors.
During withdrawal from alcohol, the loss of GABA-A receptor stimulation causes a reduction in chloride flux and is associated with tremors, diaphoresis, tachycardia, anxiety, and seizures. In addition, the lack of inhibition of the NMDA receptors may lead to seizures and delirium. Excessive nervous system excitability during periods of abstinence from alcohol is related to the effect of alcohol on the number and function of brain receptors.
Go to a pyschiatrist and get a precription for Acamprost 333mg thrice daily .This is a safe and well tolerated medication used for alcohol withdrawl.
Secondly take Lorazepam 2 to 4 mg twice daily for 14 days.Its a sedative would calm down your nerves and would be very helpful to combat withdrawl symptoms.
Thirdly when ever you feel like you can’t resist taking alcohol take 1 gram Metronidazole tablet(use in diarrhoea) it interacts with alcohol to form aldehyde which would cause severe nausea.You won’t dare touch alcohol for next 10 days.
Fourth ask your mother to lock up your room.Room should have only few things one water bottle,A strip of metronidazole tablet,Single dose of acamprost,4 mg lorazepam.Room should not have any strings ceiling fan etc as you can harm yourself.
Just lie down in dim light under sedation.
First two weeks would be difficult.
So remain strong.
Get these medicines and stay firm(You won’t die of any of these withdrawl effect).
You would feel constipated
you would feel agitated
you would feel every thing worse you can think( but for a week)
Don’t give up.
