ACAMPROSATE

MAR 26 2013

MHLW JAPAN has approved  Nippon Shinyaku Co’s Regtect (acamprosate) for support maintenance of abstinence in patients with alcohol dependence.

Acamprosate, also known as N-acetyl homotaurine and by the brand name Campral, is a drug used for treating alcohol dependence.

Acamprosate is thought to stabilize the chemical balance in the brain that would otherwise be disrupted by alcoholism, possibly by antagonizing glutamatergic N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors and agonizing gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) type A receptors. Reports indicate that acamprosate only works with a combination of attending support groups and abstinence from alcohol.Certain serious side effects include diarrhea, allergic reactions, irregular heartbeats, and low or high blood pressure, while less serious side effects include headaches, insomnia, and impotence. Acamprosate should not be taken by people with kidney problems or allergies to the drug.

Campral is manufactured and marketed in the United States by Forest Laboratories, while Merck KGaA markets it outside the US. It is sold as 333 mg white and odorless tablets of acamprosate calcium, which is the equivalent of 300 mg of acamprosate.

    Perhaps the easiest way to attain multiple quotes is to take advantage of a
    website that will do the shopping for the client. This affects their
    reactions and if they close their eyes for a second it may be a second too long and can result in a collision. Insurance companies
    know that a modified car in the hands of a teenage driver
    is a huge risk and with it comes huge premiums.

    Hello there! Would you mind if I share your
    blog with my myspace group? There’s a lot of folks that
    I think would really enjoy your content. Please let me know.
    Many thanks
