Example text

Al (1998) reported only an elimination of the alcohol deprivation effect with no effect on baseline intake of alcohol. However, it is important to note that in the study by Spanagel et al. (1996), rats had 24-h access to ethanol for 8 months prior to testing, while animals in the Heyser et al. (1998) study were trained for only 3 months in a limited access paradigm (30 min/ day). Taken together, the action of acamprosate may be strongest in animals that prefer alcohol or have a history of alcohol dependence.

Importantly, acamprosate is not metabolized in the liver, and approximately 90 % of the drug is excreted unchanged in the urine (Wilde and Wagstaff 1997). Therefore, the pharmacokinetics of acamprosate are not altered in patients with mild to moderate hepatic impairment, and no dose adjustment is required in such patients. Since there is a risk of accumulation of acamprosate with prolonged administration of therapeutic doses in renally impaired patients, the use of acamprosate is contraindicated in patients with severe renal impairment.
