Drug effects

Drugs for medical coding quite a lot. Each of them has its own mechanism of action. Therefore, these drugs can be divided into four groups:

  1. facilitate the patient's condition;
  2. causing aversion to alcohol;
  3. reduces the attraction to alcohol;
  4. the placebo effect.

Drugs of the first group relates to anti-alcohol is very conditional, as they do not reduce cravings for alcohol, but only facilitate the state after the excessive consumption of alcoholic beverages. It is well-known Alka-Seltzer, drinking remedy, and others.

Drugs that reduce cravings for alcohol is rather expensive on the territory of CIS practically applied. They are mostly used in European countries and the United States in the treatment of alcoholism. Analogues of these drugs, developed by native pharmacy, did not meet their expectations.

The action of the placebo effect based on a powerful psychological compulsion. To do this, use drugs that have no relation to alcohol. After their introduction, the doctor offers the patient a drink, but the resulting malaise debits not on the drug, and the accepted dose of alcohol. Most often this method is used nicotinic acid.

To instil disgustfor alcohol use the principle of unconditional reflex, ie, using the drug Disulfiram or medicines based on it. In the body the drug can enter in various ways: as tablets, injections or capsules for implantation. When taking these drugs together with alcohol, the patient experiences a nasty feeling that further libation loses its meaning.

Instead of the expected sensations, the alcoholic feels a sense of fear, headache, nausea, vomiting, and other unpleasant States. This method of encoding allows you to temporarily instill an aversion to alcohol. Without the constant support reflex dies away, and the alcoholic starts drinking again. Always use Disulfiram, as it is very toxic. Prescribe medications and dosage can be a doctor-psychiatrist.
