Has Anyone Heard of Protracted Withdrawals From Street Drugs and Anti-Depressants?

Question by Jonny M123: Has anyone heard of Protracted Withdrawals from street drugs and anti-depressants?
I was wondering if anyone had any information personal,studies, or anecdotal about protracted withdrawals from street drugs and anti-depressants. What I mean is the idea that drugs get trapped/absorbed into your fat cells while using them. In times of stress, weight loss, etc. these drugs can go back into your bloodstream and cause symptoms like depression, anxiety, and nausea. There are some drug treatment programs that actually use sauna treatments to remove these fat cell drugs. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

The only thing I could find that seemed related to your question was about PCP. It can stay in your fat cells and then be released again, causing the person to have another PCP trip.

Elsewhere it says, “obese people may store large amounts of fat-soluble drugs, whereas very thin people may store relatively little,” so I guess that means obese people would be more likely to experience this. Tricyclic anti-depressants such as Tofranil, Elavil, and Pamelor are highly fat soluble.

That’s all I could find.. sorry!
