Just wondering what experience people have of using nalmefene and/or naltrexone. I have tried nalmefene but couldn't cope with the side effects - though I must say it was a week before I fancied a drink after taking just one tablet - partly I just felt too I'll, I wasn't functioning/enjoying life either. It seemed to bring on an attack of vertigo which I'd had in the past and am only just recovering from 6 months later. I've done quite well with reducing my drinking but it's hard to maintain, it's always a struggle and I guess I'm being lazy wanting something to make it easier. I don't really relish the idea of medicating the issue. But I did wonder how people have found naltrexone in comparison as I'm seeing my GP next week for blood test results and a review. I did have some very helpful counselling from a local agency but they've been taken over and don't provide the same specialist one to one help anymore. Thanks everyone and I hope you are all doing well with whatever your plans are. I wish you all a happy and sober 2016
