ACAMPROSATE: ACAMPROSATE is a medication used to help individuals maintain abstinence from alcohol. It is specifically indicated for the treatment of alcohol dependence, alongside other supportive treatments and counselling.

The exact mechanism of action of ACAMPROSATE is not fully understood, but it is believed to restore the balance of chemicals in the brain that have been disrupted by long-term alcohol use. It is thought to modulate the action of the neurotransmitters glutamate and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), which play vital roles in the brain’s reward and craving pathways.

The recommended dosage of ACAMPROSATE is 666 mg (two 333 mg tablets) taken three times daily, generally with meals. The tablets should be swallowed whole and not crushed or chewed.

ACAMPROSATE can cause a range of side effects, although they are generally mild and well-tolerated. Common side effects may include diarrhea, stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, headaches, dizziness, itching, and skin rash. In some cases, changes in sex drive or difficulty sleeping may also occur. It is important to consult a healthcare professional if any side effects are persistent or concerning.

It should be noted that ACAMPROSATE is not effective in treating withdrawal symptoms or acute alcohol intoxication. It is most effective when combined with psychosocial support and therapy, as it helps to support the maintenance of abstinence and reduce the desire to consume alcohol. ACAMPROSATE should only be used under the guidance and supervision of a healthcare professional.
