Substitol causes its users to develop a high physical and psychological dependence on it. The brain’s chemistry and receptors react to this substance as well and become interrupted.
As soon as substitol stops circulating the body, withdrawal symptoms can start, which is usually 6-12 hours after the last dose. The first symptoms include sweating, tearing up, yawning and a runny nose. After 48-72 hours a person might go through the following: goosebumps, chills, high blood pressure and increased heart rate, irritability, insomnia, anxiety, restlessness, muscle pain, nausea, stomach pain, diarrhea, vomiting, tremors, sneezing, loss of appetite, depression and strong drug cravings.
