YABA, also known as “Nazi speed” is a relatively newer stimulant drug with abusive potential that contains methamphetamine and caffeine in various proportions and mostly available in Bangladesh and its subcontinent and relatively rare in Indian states. Here, we report a case of a 30-year-old male with history of Yaba abuse for the past 4 years currently complaining of withdrawal symptoms palpitation, dry mouth, irritability, and mood symptoms that managed symptomatically and with topiramate tablets to prevent future relapse.
