Acamprosate: is it useful for withdrawal?

Recommended Posts

Hello I just had a question about the drug Acamprosate. It's a drug used in acute alcohol withdrawal, I'm not too intelligent with this stuff but I think it works by inhibiting glutamate receptor activated responses, and enhancing nmda receptor function.

I was just wondering if this would be beneficial for us in withdrawal?

After a quick read of the wiki page, I think at best it would be another drug to eventually taper if it works they way they believe it works, which is "controversial"

Curious if anyone else had tried this drug. It seems to work well for alcohol WD.
