Thought I would share my experience of Nalmefene from day one to the present.
Took my first tablet yesterday and felt completely out of it, drank 9 units and went to bed, slept for 4 hours then woke to experience a barrage of hot flushes. I tried taking the duvet off but was too cold, then tried opening the window but keeping the duvet on but sweated like it was hell on earth - needless to say, sleep was impossible. Also had a few issues with having to stretch now and again during the night and tightness in my legs. I had to attend work today, but fortunately I'm not a great sleeper anyway so I persevered.
Took tablet two today and felt sick, again persevered, only bought one bottle of wine and feel that that is quite enough. I'm apprehensive about tonight regarding the hot flushes, but at least I have an indicator of what might happen.
The main thing being I have my wine consumption down to one bottle, were normally it would be two - especially on a Friday. I feel also, I don't have to gulp my wine down, I can sip.
Of course it's early days and I need to remember that just drinking a bottle a night is an achievement in itself, but I know what I'm like, I expect hard and fast results pronto - I need to realise it's a marathon not a sprint.
