It is not a drug it is a mix of herbs that aren't proven by any research to be beneficial in overcoming addiction. There are no FDA trials of this and it is not a medication. It is marketed as a supplement and therefore able to make any unjustified claim the manufacturers want. This is not harmful, but does not work despite many likely paid testimonials that it does.

What drug wud u suggest to help this problem
Expert:  Daniel Sheibley, MD replied 6 months ago.

I'd suggest AA meetings and being faithful to attend those. That is the most effective way to beat alcoholism. Rather than relying on another substance you rely upon yourself. You can't go wrong that way.

wud u suggest councelling or CBT therapy
Expert:  Daniel Sheibley, MD replied 6 months ago.

Both in fact. Definitely do AA in addition.
