Acamprosate Reviews

What is acamprosate?

Acamprosate affects chemicals in the brain that may be unbalanced in a person who is addicted to alcohol. Acamprosate works by restoring this chemical balance in the brain in an alcohol-dependent person who has recently quit drinking.

Acamprosate is used together with behavior modification and counseling support to help a person who has recently quit drinking alcohol continue to choose not to drink.

Acamprosate is not likely to be helpful if you have not already quit drinking or undergone detoxification. It may not help you if you are also addicted to other substances besides alcohol.

Acamprosate may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

I started Campral while in treatment for alcohol dependency. I've been sober now almost 8 months. I also take gabapentin with the Campral. I haven't had any side affects and it does seem to help. I also was ready to quit drinking and completed and out patient program after inpatient and do attend AA once or twice a week. I think without the Campral I still would've maintined absenence from drinking, I think the Campral has just made it easier for me.

I started the meds about 4 days ago. Went 2 days without drinking but cravings overwhelmed me. Of course I felt ashamed and like a hopeless failure. I hope that it will help me as much as all of these commenters. Maybe it will kick in with a little time. I"m desperate. Going to AA and to a therapist. Trying. Wish me luck.

55 year old. Drinking heavily for fifteen years. Tried campral for three months. OK to begin with but as it built up in my system it completely numbed all of my senses. I am normally an upbeat, happy person but it made me feel down all the time, tired, couldn't be bothered doing anything, lost interest in friends and family, memory loss to the point where I'd be having a conversation and couldn't recall words. And, probably the most embarrassing symptom, was that the muscle relaxant effect made me wet the bed twice which I have never done before (not alcohol induced). On researching this I saw that it is a common side effect but largely goes unreported for obvious reasons. It did however reduce my drinking, mainly because I was spaced out and zombified on campral and didn't need further intoxication.

So, I was released from voluntary 51/50 ( a stay in hospital or institution) I'm a "3 tall cans a night" type of gal. The med is fantastic! I have no desire to drink. Only down side? I had a reaction to it. Ended up in the E.R.. I don't want to give up. I have hives. The Dr at the E.R. was no help. He just said, "It's up to you, stop taking it or not." help I don't wanna stop taking it but I also don't wanna die. My throat closed up. I need to look at other option like naltrexone, or antabuse.

I’m ashamed to say I was drinking too much .... I went voluntarily to my doctor for help and she suggested Campral along with counselling. I had read the reviews and side effects etc and thought ok I’ll give it a try. I HONESTLY can’t believe how this has worked for me. It’s only been two weeks on Campral but I did change my drinking habits prior to starting Campral with a week completely off alcohol. I don’t feel much desire to drink and I had previously dreaded nighttime and weekends that had been the hardest for me but the Campral worked so far. I know every one is different but I would urge you to give it a go , I just wish this was prescribed to my sister who sadly passed 8 years ago with alcohol dependence being a main factor, I’m sure it would have helped. Good luck to all on their journey
