Campral, also known as acamprosate calcium is medication used when treating alcohol addiction as it can help to reduce cravings.
Studies have proven that Campral maximises the odds of sobriety once alcohol detoxification has been completed. Apart from that, it also decreases the amount of alcohol an individual drinks and the period of time within which they drink.
The medicine also helps to diminishes any pain that might arise once drinking stops. Campral improves the performance of the brain’s natural chemical sedatives and decreases the natural chemical stimulants.
Campral does however have side effects like any other medicine, such as dizziness, flatulence, weakness and loss of appetite, diarrhoea and a dry mouth. Severe reactions such as rashes and numbness can occur, however they are rare. If this does happen, contact a doctor immediately.
