I've seen other discussions on here about nalfamene and the difficulties getting it to help with cutting down drinking, but many seem to be older closed discussions, so apologies if I'm asking questions that have already been answered elsewhere.
I am desperate to try this Nalfamene to help me reduce my drinking but keep coming up against obstacles. Its now nearly 2 months since I saw my GP to request this and I'm no further forward. She referred me to a local alcohol service saying they would assess and prescribe this. i had my first meeting with them this week but came away disappointed, the person who interviewed me said she was not aware of their service prescribing this medication and only talked about detox and acamprosate,
Sadly I also came away feeling very demotivated and wanting to withdraw from their service partly because of the content of the letter she gave me to get bloods from my GP, but thats another matter.
I'm hoping someone can help me with the following:
Does anyone know if Selincro is available over the counter in Spain?
If it is, are any questions likely to be asked at the pharmacy in Spain? (I ask because its a friend who is going there and i was hoping to ask them to get me some if its available)
Please can anyone suggest anything else I can do to try to get this medication?
I've already tried to make 3 online purchases, twice from Pharmacy4U in the UK, but on both occassions their online systems failed, and the other two just looked too dodgy when they asked for money to be sent by wire transfer, one to the USA and the other to somewhere in Oceania.
I keep asking myself why is it so difficult to get to try this medication, its so frustrating because I desperately need to cut down and it sounds like this could help, I have the motivation but feel this slipping away with all the obstacles.
Thanks in advance for any info, help or advice anyone can offer.
