If a person has been drinking heavily for a prolonged period of time, they can experience serious medical complications when they stop drinking. Withdrawal symptoms may develop within a few hours or may occur a few days after the person has quit drinking.

Common Symptoms of Alcohol Withdrawal:

  • Sweating
  • Rapid pulse
  • Tremors
  • Insomnia
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Hallucinations
  • Agitation

Delirium Tremens (DTs) is a withdrawal syndrome occurring in a person who has developed a dependence on alcohol.

Common Symptoms of DTs:

  • Inability to focus

Alcohol withdrawal can lead to serious medical complications and can result in death if the withdrawal is severe and not medically monitored.
