Benzo Fury Detox and Withdrawal: Symptoms and Timelines

Addiction to Benzo Fury is relatively little understood compared with addictions to other more mainstream substances of abuse, as a result of its relative infancy as a recreational drug and its limited consumption. However, it is known that addicts can suffer extremely uncomfortable and distressing, and potentially dangerous, withdrawal symptoms when attempting to overcome their addiction, and as a result, a medically assisted and/or managed detoxification (“detox”) is always advisable. At Primrose Lodge, our addiction recovery facility in Surrey, our medical team are on hand 24/7 to provide the therapeutic support necessary to ensure addicts can go through withdrawal as safely and as comfortable as possible.

If you are suffering from an addiction to Benzo Fury, call us today to discuss the benefits of medically assisted detox and other elements of our recovery programme.

What Is Benzo Fury Withdrawal?

Withdrawal occurs as the system of someone who has been consuming Benzo Fury regularly for a prolonged period readjusts to the absence of the drug. As Benzo Fury addiction is a predominantly psychological phenomenon, the symptoms of withdrawal are also in consequence mostly psychological (although it does appear that there may also be a degree of physical dependence to the drug in the case of some addicts).

Withdrawal takes place during the process of detox; because long-term use means that “normality” has come to involve the presence of the drug in the system, and the repeated experience of the drug’s effects, the brain responds to the “abnormality” of its absence in a variety of ways (which will differ from one user to the next depending on a number of factors including the length of addiction, dosages consumed, the physiology of the user). As the user completes detox, their system will readjust to the new normality of life without Benzo Fury, and withdrawal symptoms will for the most part disappear.

What Causes Withdrawal?

Consumption of Benzo Fury is habit-forming; the brain’s reward centres are triggered by repeated use, producing chemicals such as serotonin and dopamine (associated with pleasure and a sense of well-being) when Benzo Fury is consumed – and, conversely, creating a deficiency of those chemicals when the drug is not detected in the system, which can trigger a variety of negative symptoms in the user which combine to form the phenomenon of withdrawal.

Certain substances such as heroin also create physical dependency on the part of the user, in which various other parts of the brain and central nervous system also become reliant on the presence of the drug; in this case, withdrawal symptoms of a physical nature – such as, for example, flu-like symptom or muscle spasms – may also manifest. Although it has not yet been conclusively proven that Benzo Fury addiction does include such physical dependency, some addicts do describe physical symptoms of withdrawal; research is ongoing into the nature of the drug and whether or not these physical manifestations are actually primarily psychosomatic.

Withdrawal Symptoms

As noted above, withdrawal will vary significantly from one user to the next as a result of the aforementioned factors (moreover, with Benzo Fury in particular, because the name can actually refer to one of several substances in the substituted benzofuran, substituted amphetamine and substituted phenethylamine classes, withdrawal can also differ according to which specific chemical has been consumed).

However, some symptoms are clearly common across the vast majority of instances of benzofuran addiction. If you are addicted to Benzo Fury, you can expect to experience some or all of the following symptoms as you go through detox:

  • Cravings
  • Insomnia
  • Hallucinations
  • Anxiety
  • Mood swings
  • Confusion
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Depression

Some physical symptoms may also manifest; however, as discussed above it is not yet clear whether these are psychosomatic in nature or genuinely a consequence of physical dependency to Benzo Fury.

Going through withdrawal can be extremely dangerous as the addict may experience extreme distress and/or depression which can result in self-harm or even suicidal ideation. Because of this it is always advisable, as mentioned above, to have medical assistance when going through detox; going “cold turkey” by oneself without medical help is extremely strongly discouraged by doctors and having a medically assisted detox in the safety and comfort of rehab is by far the best option.


Once again each case of addiction, and subsequent withdrawal, is unique, and it is impossible to provide a timeline of withdrawal which will be applicable to every addict. However if you are addicted to Benzo Fury, a rough guide to what you may expect from withdrawal is as follows:

  • 0-24 hours: You may start feeling anxious and irritable a few hours to a day after your last dose. Cravings will begin to manifest and quickly will become intense; you may also feel the onset of nausea.
  • 1-3 days: Your anxiety and irritability and restlessness will become pronounced and mood swings may be extreme. Cravings will be frequent and intense, while insomnia may manifest.
  • 3-7 days: Your symptoms are likely to peak around three days and may include hallucinations as well as all the above conditions. Depression is likely to set in even as other symptoms begin to decline in intensity and frequency.
  • 1-2 weeks: Most symptoms will begin to fade after around a week although insomnia may persist and depression is likely to intensify. After a fortnight in most cases, withdrawal will be complete.
  • If symptoms – in particular depression – persist for longer than two weeks, you may be suffering from post-acute withdrawal syndrome (PAWS) which may last for months or even years and may require therapy to deal with the worst effects.

At Primrose Lodge, we personalise our legal high rehab treatment to cater to the individual requirements of each addict. We provide a caring and supportive environment, and our highly trained and experienced medical staff will be on hand at all times to ensure withdrawal is as smooth and as comfortable as it can be.

What Is A Medical Benzo Fury Detox?

Even if your withdrawal from Benzo Fury is not accompanied by physical symptoms, it can be an extremely distressing and uncomfortable experience – not to mention a terrifying one. It is very easy to give in to the cravings which accompany withdrawal, or to resort to the drug to dispel the more uncomfortable and disconcerting symptoms of withdrawal; however doing so will undo all the hard work you have done thus far (thus exacerbating any mental health issues associated with your addiction and perhaps placing relationships under intolerable strain).

It is undeniable that detoxing from Benzo Fury through abstinence is very difficult to achieve by yourself; as a result – and to minimise the unpleasantness associated with withdrawal, perhaps through the prescription of certain medicines to ameliorate the worst effects of certain symptoms – a private detox where your physical and emotional needs will be met is key.

Benefits Of Private Detox

As mentioned above, rehab has long been acknowledged as the most effective form of treatment for addiction, resulting in long-term recovery and a life free of substance abuse. Only rehab provides the holistic mix of physical, psychological and spiritual assistance which forms the most solid foundation for a permanent recovery from Benzo Fury addiction.

Some of the benefits provided by Primrose Lodge include:
