Campral and Depression

My spouse recently began taking this when she finally decided to quit drinking alcohol (after many years). She is now quite surly, depressed and tired all the time. Almost unapproachable.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Would like to know anyone's comments relative to the effectiveness of this drug. ## I relapsed severely after 8 years sobriety I started taking it in the hospital and for the last 90 days. It has really helped me. I do not have any cravings and thoughts are fleeting. I have not felt this good in years.The worse side effect for me was gastric distress so I have cut down to 2 doses a day but still seems to be working fine. ## The use of campral has unfortunately not dimished my cravings. The only effect that I noticed was fatigue and prolonged periods of sleep, more than 10 hours a night. ## THIS STUFF WAS A GODSEND. AFTER DRINKING 24/7 FOR ABOUT 10 YEARS I NO LONGER HAVE THE CRAVING AND THE PHYSICAL WITHDRAWELS WERE MINIMUM. CAMPRAL SAVED MY LIFE ## I started taking Campral after too...
