Mandrax is one of the common names for the drug methaqualone. It's also widely known as Quaaludes, or Lude. Working as a depressant, the drug was originally meant to be a safer way than barbiturates to treat health issues like anxiety and insomnia, but quickly became a recreational drug. Methaqualone is addictive physically and psychologically, and has a large number of effects on the mind and body. The withdrawal symptoms can be extremely dangerous, so treatment consists first of a detox and then inpatient rehabilitation, where both the physical and psychological aspects of the addiction will be addressed.

About Mandrax Addiction
Methaqualone is a very dangerous drug and can result in a serious physical and psychological addiction very quickly in users. People who use mandrax can rapidly develop a tolerance to the drug, which means they have to do more of the drug in order to get the same results. Overdose is a major concern. Physical withdrawal can occur anywhere from 12 to 24 hours after the last time the drug was used, and usually lasts between seven and ten days. It can consist of symptoms like anxiety, irritability, insomnia, loss of appetite, nausea, tremors and convulsions. More serious symptoms include delirium, hallucinations, high fever and in some cases, seizures.
Treatment Of Mandrax Addiction
Mandrax can cause dangerous physical withdrawal effects, and therefore, detoxification in a medically supervised inpatient setting is necessary as the first step of treatment. The detox may include a substitute sedative in order to ease the withdrawal symptoms. After the physical withdrawal is safely over, an inpatient rehabilitation program is required. Because methaqualone is so psychologically addictive, a 90-day rehab program is suggested. The treatment for mandrax addiction consists of both physical and psychological therapy.
Post Rehabilitation Of Mandrax Addiction
Methaqualone is a drug that is extremely addictive, and recovery lasts forever. Staying sober and finding healthy ways to deal with the addiction are absolutely necessary for full recovery. Aftercare for mandrax addiction requires a lot of support from people who care, and this can consist of family, friends, or people who have been through the same kind of situation and are still sober. Support meetings, whether online or in person, are extremely helpful as a component of aftercare.
