Hello. I'm Dr Chip
How can I help you with this please?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I have been drinking quite heavily for the past 4 months nearly every day I am now experiencing unpleasant withdrawals.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 5 months ago.

I understand but what is your specific question about that?

What medication should I ask for to help come off alcohol completely
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 5 months ago.

Are you asking what medication for the withdrawals or are you asking for what medication to help you stay off alcohol in the future?

And did the acamprosate help?
