My elder brother has become addicted to alcohol. I am very worried for him because some times, he even thinks of committing suicide. Since his boss has thrown him out of work, he is depressive also. I have a friend who works as counselor, he told to bring him at his centre, and he will try all his best to help my brother to stop drinking alcohol. But he told me that I should find a medication which will help my brother not to drink alcohol. He told me that counseling as well as the medication will help him to stop the alcohol drinking. I’ve learnt about a medication called campral:
Campral is a drug normally prescribed in the treatment of alcoholics (it is meant to help them stop drinking alcoholic drinks). In order for the patient to gain the best results from his treatment with Campral (also known as Acamprosate) it is recommended that this drug should be accompanied by at least one treatment program (preferably one that includes support and even counceling).
Does anyone know about campral?? Is it effective?? Do you have any other suggestion??
