Many of the members on the substance abuse forum use this one and have good success. We always want them to ask their doctor first before taking supplements as some dont mix. I personally take Ester C, B-6 and B-12.
I hope she will continue with her recovery. She is lucky to have you guys in her corner......sara
why giving her the ativan?for anxiety?is habit forming to alcoholics and they have to be gradually withdrawn from it!Librium would be a better choice to ease withdrawals.....person has to be withdrawn from it gradually but less likelihood of getting hooked on it from my xperience.She will be xperiencing a moderate amount of depression for some time due to the amount u describe she was drinking....alcohol is a central nervous system depressant so go figure here.....Campral or Naltrexone would be a good choice in helping her to stay sober and further take the craving away for alcohol.she in counseling?a support group?church involvement?
