What is it for?
Acamprol (Acamprosate) is used to treat people for alcoholism. It can help people who have been drinking heavily for a long time to avoid drinking more alcohol. Drinking lots of alcohol for an extended period of time can change the way a person's brain works, and may even cause withdrawal symptoms when the person stops drinking. This medicine is used to help the brain work normally again after someone stops drinking, but it won't prevent withdrawal symptoms.

How do you use it?
Acamprol (Acamprosate) tablets are taken by mouth. Before you start taking them, you have to stop drinking. Also, your doctor might tell you to go and see a therapist as part of your treatment for alcoholism. Normally, patients will be told to take this medicine 3 times per day. To help you remember when to take it, your doctor might tell you to take it at breakfast, lunchtime and dinner. If you start drinking again, keep taking the medicine and go and see your doctor.

Any side effects?
Acamprol (Acamprosate) does cause side effects in some people. However, don't worry too much, because most people won't experience serious reactions. Side effects include:

  • A dry mouth or changes in sense of taste
  • Pain in the back
  • Memory problems
  • Impotence
  • Changes in vision

Remember to tell your doctor about any side effects you notice. Also, in rare cases, some people taking this medicine might suffer from harmful and dangerous side effects. You need to go and see your doctor straight away if you notice changes in your behaviour, depression, anxiety, urinating a lot less than you normally would, feeling thirsty or any other serious reactions which haven't been mentioned here.


*Precautions*
Acamprol (Acamprosate) might cause suicidal thoughts in a small number of people who take it. Tell your doctor straight away if this occurs.

You shouldn't drink alcohol while taking this medicine.
