Is Acamprosate Effective?
In clinical trials, acamprosate has been shown to reduce the rate of relapse in individuals who have abstained from drinking for a period of time. In addition, acamprosate has been shown to be effective in reducing the severity of symptoms such as anxiety and insomnia that are often associated with alcohol withdrawal.
While acamprosate can help people maintain their abstinence from alcohol, it is not a cure for alcoholism.
