- seizures or Delerium tremens (DT's) due to alcohol withdrawal
- This category indicates that the patient has current withdrawal symptoms or syndrome for the indicated substance.
- While withdrawal USUALLY goes along with chronic abuse/dependence/addiction, there are drugs where one may get withdrawal symptoms after a first use (e.g. methamphetamines)
- Thus, if (as will often but not universally be the case) a person in withdrawal does have a chronic abuse/dependence/addiction for that substance, you SHOULD also code that.
See ICD10 Guideline for drugs and substances for more info on coding substance related ICD10 diagnoses.
