What Are the Symptoms of Cocaine Abuse?

Cocaine use disorder is a chronic disease caused by cocaine's effects on the brain. It floods the brain with dopamine, a chemical messenger that causes you to feel good. It is possible for individuals suffering from cocaine use disorder to experience several psychological and physical symptoms. It is partly due to how they take the drug. It is possible to use cocaine nasally, snorted, or injected intravenously, or smoked as crack cocaine. Some of the signs of cocaine abuse include the following.

Physical Signs of Cocaine Abuse

Cocaine abuse is characterized by the following physical symptoms:

  • Agitation
  • Dilated pupils
  • Hypertension or high blood pressure
  • Lack of sleep followed by long periods of sleep
  • Nose bleeds
  • Runny nose
  • Sudden weight loss

Cocaine abusers may also have burnt lips as a result of smoking crack cocaine or track marks as a result of taking IV drugs.

  • Aggression
  • Antisocial behavior
  • Apathy
  • Depression
  • Erratic behavior

In general, any behavior that's not typical for the individual could be a sign of cocaine abuse.

Cocaine Withdrawal

As cocaine alters brain chemistry, individuals who abuse the substance develop a mental and physical need for it, leading to unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. Long-term cocaine addicts experience several withdrawal symptoms that are severe.

Cocaine withdrawal symptoms include:    

  • Anxiety
  • Chills
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Fatigue
  • Increased appetite
  • Intense cocaine cravings
  • Insomnia

Anyone struggling with cocaine addiction should not deal with the side effects of the withdrawal process alone, but rather under medical supervision at an inpatient drug and alcohol detox facility. Following detox, cocaine addicts should continue their treatment at an outpatient rehab facility, such as Redemption Addiction Treatment Center in Wilmington, DE.
