What is Campral?

July 4, 2007 | by DoctorSolve

Campral is a new medication approved for the treament of alcoholism. In combination with counseling or support groups it helps people stay alcohol-free.
Campral is thought to restore the normal brain balance and prevent the feelings of discomfort associated with not drinking. These feelings of discomfort include sweating, anxiety, and sleep disturbances. In several clinical trials, it was shown to help up to 3 times more people stay alcohol-free than placebo pills (sugar pills). In addition, for patients who did experience a slip, or relapse, Campral prolonged the periods of abstinence and reduced the number and severity of relapses.
Treatment should begin as soon as possible following alcohol withdrawal, once you have achieved abstinence. The recommended daily dose is two 333 mg tablets taken with meals, three times a day. If you relapse treatment can be continued. It is important that you talk about your relapse with your doctor.

  • More common side effects may include:
    Anxiety, body pain or weakness, chest pain, depression, diarrhea, dizziness, headache, heart failure, insomnia, irregular heartbeat, kidney failure, nausea, seizure, sudden death, and suicidal thinking or suicide attempt.
    You cannot use Campral if you have severe kidney disease. You must also avoid the drug if it causes an allergic reaction.
    Campral will not prevent you from drinking, but it will make it easier to resist drinking and get yourself moving along the road to recovery. It should be used as part of a comprehensive management program that includes psychosocial support such as counseling and support groups.
