Some who r suffering from alcohol addiction all their adult lives. In the last few years alcohol abuse increases due to inceased long term use. I understand some First Step Drug & Alcohol clinics offer Baclofen 10mg tablets once or twice a day. For those u have little hope of stopping. When I looked the grug up it states this medicine is used for sclerosis treatment and addiction treatments. Controls the cravings. Baclofen can help those facing alcohol addiction with the pain of withdrawal with great ease and stop cravings for alcohol.
I asked the hospital staff where my son was admitted for a illness due to alcoholism for help could they prescribe him Baclofen .The hospital staff refused to prescribe Baclofen to him on basis that they knew nothing about Baclofen and they would check into it. Never got back to me..under the circumstances w hy or how could this be the case? This hospital also has a alcohol treatment program I was tring to get my son in before he was released from the hospital for the illness he was in treated for. My reasoning for Baclofen was if I could find a way to get my sons mind of alcohol by a drug that stops the cravings then meybe there would be a better chance for him to admitt himself to the treatment program.
i was fightin a loosing battle on both sides. Noone cared ..
Has Baclofen stopped the cravings for others? Once off the drug does the cravings come back?
I have taken Chantix to stop smoking and it reduced my cravings right away. And I tried every way to quit for 20 years. In less than a few weeks time I was a non smoker and no cravings. Today I still miss smoking. Want to try one or bum one off a friend. When I do take a puff I turn green and choke and say to myself how did I ever smoke?
is that what it's those who find sobriety say when tempted to drink?
