This morning on GMA they report a doc that has determined that baclofen, a muscle relaxer helps prevent relapses when giving up alcohol.
It helps prevent that anxiety & restless ness that happens when a person give up alcohol.
Combine it with Naltroxone, as in the low dose Naltroxone people with MS are using it's a very effective aid to help giving up an alcohol addiction.
The thought interested me, because I ended a problem with sore muscles possibly from betaseron & I know what I did just gradually not realizing why I was doing it... The thought of someone giving up alcohol falling into gradually starting something because...of muscle soreness that I had was an interesting thought.
