    I'm having a hard time recognizing signs and symptoms for withdrawal/tox of drugs of abuse. Anyone know a good place to get information and/or help remember these?

    Also, which drugs makes you feel like you have ants crawling on your skin?

    thanks!

    I just learned what was in FA/on UW questions. Ants under your skin is called "formication", and I know cocaine, methamphetimines, and DT from alcohol withdrawel are associated with it.

    Tincture of opium should be enough to get everything figured out;)
