While there has been a lack of consistency in the results from different studies on cocaine withdrawal, generally, symptoms of cocaine withdrawal include:

  • Anxiety
  • Erratic sleep
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Sadness
  • Cravings for cocaine
  • Poor concentration
  • Lethargy

These may occur anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks after the suspension of cocaine use. The symptoms can be managed by most people while at home and do not require hospitalization for detox.
