    It is correct.

    Following the birth, withdrawal symptoms are experienced in 31 percent of newborns exposed to cocaine in utero. These include seizures, depression, lethargy, feeding problems, hyperactive reflexes, vomiting, diarrhea, high- pitched cry, coarse tremors and restlessness. These symptoms may indicate damage to the central nervous system that may prevail throughout life.
