Hi all. I'm looking for some advice in regards to my updated situation.
I have since been seen by Alcohol Services twice now. Completed some weekly drink dialysis and determined that I was drinking between 15 to 20 units per evening. I was prepared to ask my gp before being seen by Alcohol services for Nalmefene but with the help of Joannac3Europe I found out that this medicine is not used or prescribed in my area.
I have since been advised to try and drop my alcohol consumption by 2 units daily. To date I'm at 12 units but feeling it today in terms of withdrawal. It's bearable though and I'm pleased with my progress. Alcohol services have advised that after 48 hours alcohol free I start taking Antabuse, something that I have previously drank and overdosed on requiring hospitalisation. My concern is that this is not going to help me with the cravings, although Alcohol services think that it is more a physical dependency. They do not use Campral as they don't rate it apparently. I have a Liver Functioning Test on Monday.
Any advice on my current predicament would be extremely useful and gratefully received.
