Uses
Acamprol (Acamprosate) is used to treat patients addicted to alcohol. If the patient has stopped drinking, it may reduce cravings to consume alcoholic beverages. In addition to this, it can help to restore the normal brain function in patients who may have drank large quantities of alcohol over an extended period of time. Doctors believe it works by acting on neurotransmitters in the brain to increase the inhibitory effects of these natural chemicals, while also acting on amino acids to help reduce the patient's cravings for alcohol.

Dosage and Administration
If you are affected by alcoholism, it is necessary to note that Acamprol (Acamprosate) tablets must be used alongside counselling, in order to properly treat alcohol addiction. The most commonly prescribed dosage is 2 tablets taken 3 times per day. Take each dose with food. Treatment normally commences as soon as the patient has ceased drinking, and will normally last for 1 year. If alcohol is consumed again, you should continue taking the medicine, but it is necessary to tell your doctor about this.

Side effects
Treating alcoholism with Acamprol (Acamprosate) may cause some side effects, including:

  • Impotence
  • Cold symptoms
  • Memory problems
  • Appetite reduction
  • Perspiration and mild skin reactions

When taking this medicine, you are advised to report all side effects you notice to your doctor. In rare cases, serious side effects may occur. Immediate medical attention is required if you notice severe changes in mood, hallucinations, feeling thirsty or any other symptoms of a severe reaction.

Precautions
Patients need to note that taking this medicine on its own will not cure alcoholism. This medicine can help to reduce the desire to consume alcoholic beverages, and together with counseling, it can greatly increase the likelihood of successful treatment for alcoholism.

Taking this drug will not treat the withdrawal symptoms from alcohol.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Acamprol (Acamprosate) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.

This medication may not be safe for all patients. Before you begin using it always disclose the following to your doctor:
