I started taking selincro last April. Got past the horrible side effects and cut down considerably on my intake. The downside was that I was getting no enjoyment from the little drinking I was doing compared to previously, getting no buzz. So I stopped taking the tablets, got a bit of buzz back, but my intake was creeping back up.
Yesterday, I took a selincro before watching the rugby match, cracked a beer and settled back with a six pack. I enjoyed the first but couldn't finish the second!! I went for a walk came back, opened a bottle of wine with dinner as per usual, had one glass and couldn't take a second. Felt headachy, nauseous. Went to bed early, slept on and off, much the same as in the early days of taking selincro. Today I had three glasses of wine over the course of the afternoon. I don't want any more, back in bed, tired.
I am wondering if once you reach pharmacological extinction, is it permanent? Or can you retrain your body/mind to drink again? NOT that I want to!!
I am quite happy with my few glasses of wine every evening, even if it is exceeding the guidelines.I am eating healthily, exercising regularly, my GP is happy with me, so I guess selincro worked for me.
What I was shocked at was how much more of an effect it had on me second time around! I don't want to go through the side effects again so I won't be straying too far from the guidelines in future!
Keep faith people, it works if you want it to.
