How to Treat Neonatal Drug Withdrawal

Close Monitoring

Your baby may need to stay in the hospital so that he can be closely monitored. Your baby may be watched for:

  • Other serious withdrawal symptoms


Your baby may be given medicines to help during withdrawal. Medicines will differ based on the drug your baby is withdrawing from.
