After boasting about my success with Nalmefene and reducing my drinking from 2 strong bottles of red wine a night to light social drinking and often having 7 AF days I got over confident. I stopped taking it and I drank....and I took codiene for knee pain. I drank far to much again and I was back to drinking everyday. I did switch my drink to rose wine and G&T....well it was hot and that is rare in London.
Decided to get back on the Nalmefene. Wham. I took it and wandered of to do some grocery shopping. Staggered home. Went to bed. Needed to be held by my partner. Hot and cold and felt sick. Last codiene was 5 days before this. Felt better and had a few drinks but couldn't eat much. Thew up in night.
Saturday. Took the pill about 5pm and went to an art show. All ok. Large glass of rose at 9 30pm. Got some pizza on way home and threw that up!
Sunday. Took pill at 4pm. Very little side effects except feeling sick. Ate some food at 8pm and not sick. Drank 2 Large glasses rose but didn't finish the second one.
Question is am I back on track?? I don't want to drink...but it is 12 30pm and I have just done a workout! Am I safe to go back to only taking Nalmefene when I feel the urge to drink??
