Acamprosate Calcium (Campral®)

Acamprosate calcium is FDA-approved for the maintenance of abstinence from alcohol in patients with alcohol dependence who are abstinent at treatment initiation. Acamprosate reduces the physical and emotional discomfort (e.g. sweating, anxiety, sleep disturbances) many people feel in the weeks and months after they've stopped drinking which makes it easier for them not to drink after the immediate withdrawal period.
