The DSM-IV-TR criteria for diagnosing amphetamine withdrawal include :

dysphoric mood and two or more symptoms:

fatigue, vivid or unpleasant dreams, insomnia or hypersomnia, [highlight]increased appetite[/highlight] and psychomotor agitation or retardation that occur following discontinuation of the drug (DSM-IV-TR 2000).

Clinically, amphetamine dependent individuals in acute withdrawal report feeling “severe dysphoria, irritability and melancholia, anxiety, hypersomnia and marked fatigue, intense craving for the drug and paranoia.”

Gee - I don't know the answer myself. This question was asked in August 2008. Only yesterday I saw this question being discussed before in previous posts of this forum

SPMM course material has this question but they have changed the question to - which is the most likely symptom and not least likely and the naswer given is Hypersomnia

Personally if the question is least likely I will go for Decreased appetite and if it is most likely I will go for hypesomnia

No need for loosing sleep over these kind of questions Gee. Royal college has some such questions for which there is never a single answer

I see you're winding everyone up again MP3 :lol: Are you Insane's pal ??

Please enlighten me, I think it must be you have current subscription to SPMM course, so you can then get access to Mock paper?? You could get stand-alone sub to B'ham mock and you may be right it may heve been 4 papers :P Is current SPMM better than last time-thanks.

at least this time its only 'pals'.last time it was 'item' wasnt it :lol: :lol:

yes thats right.it might be accessible to only those with current online subscription.

Is current SPMM better than last time

they have added few bits more. they have also incorporated questions from last paper as well.so i guess its well worth paying that 50 or 60 quid for the online access. ;)
