Dear Mr Anonymous
Its likely that you are suffering from rhinitis, when episodic and continuous. often it is allergic rhinitis. As you were suffering from something, for which amphetamine (meth?) was started, this drugs gives partial relief from allergic rhinitis. Due to this you didnot experience any symptoms till date. the other justification is that your body was adapted for meth and stopping its causing its withdrawl.

I would first like to know why it was started for? was the stopping or tapering of dose advised by doctor? if no, please go to the doctor and discuss whether and how it can be stopped. if yes, Go back to same doctor and you may ask for some nasal spray that will help in allergic rhinitis.Dont take any medicines unless a doctor hqas examined you in details and prescribed you keeping all details about you and your health in mind.
