So far so good. I've been on this medication for two weeks now. I have experienced, dizziness, extreme fatigue, sleepiness, and dry mouth...very thirsty! Otherwise, all is well. I am getting through the rough parts, as mentioned above, now I am trying to search for the personal hygeine products that I CAN use. You know what I mean? Well, good luck to all.

I am so terrified I will vomit if I drink that it keeps me from drinking. It does not remove the cravings in fact I find them intensified! I wonder how long one needs to be off it before they can drink again. My doctor says 2 weeks but I bet it's less than that. I haven't had any side effects from the 250 mg. dose I take in the morning.

I have been taking this medication for almost 60 days at 250mg. At this dose I have only experienced mild abdominal discomfort. I began at 250 mg, but found I was still able to have a sip of alcohol and not experience the side effects. I spoke with my doctor and upped the dose to 500 mg, but found the abdominal discomforts to be too great and went back down to 250mg. I have been sober for 20 days ... Show Full Comment
