Does baclofen work?
Just thought I would ask this question.  My Sister is a chronic a drinker.  She drinks 2 bottles of wine per night for several years now.  She went to her Dr's and he has mentioned Baclofen.  Has anyone tried this method?  I would be grateful for any response.

Best to you all...........

I am new here.  And yes, have the same problem.  I don't know your sister but I am looking for something different then this drug.  I don't know if it works.  But please try to find out about side effects.

I've only heard of Antibuse to take, that makes you sick if you drink. Your sister sounds like she is looking to get sober, and if so, is she willing to do anything other than to take a pill to make it happen? I hope so. If you put as much effort into quitting as you do drinking, you'll see results. She can't feel good having to drink two bottles of wine per night, i know this to be true. Good luck with your sister, finding her way (here?), to sobriety.
