    First week on this medication and it seems to work. My need to drink just isnâ??t there. But I have yhis feeling of something missing but sure itâ??s that Iâ??m used to packing a cold one around the house. Iâ??ll get back and give another review after one month. Wish me luck.

    I just started taking this medication after receiving my second DUI as a 23 year old. I�m fairly optimistic it�s going to help but nervous as to which side effects I�m going to get but I guess I will see as time passes. I�ve been going to therapy for a fairly long time but hopefully the addition of ... Show Full Comment

    Hello I am back again and I have been on this miracle drug now for almost 3 months. I haven't totally lost the cravings but almost. I really think besides the cravings when you have been drinking for so long and you quit it seems like you are missing something when you are not, actually. Been a drunk like forever, been sober so many times I lost count. I reduced my intake of this medicine ... Show Full Comment

I have been through so many attempts at sobriety that I lost count. I tried Naltrexone, but eventually just drank through it.

    I am new to this medication and it seems to be working, but it is still too early like two weeks so it could still be just a placebo effect for all I know. I tried Naltrexone and eventually drank through that stuff. I can't afford to get pancreatitis again it almost killed me the first time, got lucky the second time. AA and/or psychotropic drug therapy will not work for me since I tried AA ... Show Full Comment
