How long should one try to do without drinking before starting the Campral? A day - a week- two weeks? Is it not effective if the last drink was "last night"?
Take it the day after. It is critical that you don't drink. you won't get sick; Campral takes the edge off withdrawal symptoms. I quit drinking a few years ago after about 27 years. I can, you can.
Hi Campral/Acamprosate works by lowering your tolerance to alcohol and makes drinking less pleasurable. You may also have a higher chance of hangovers if you drink whilst taking it. It isn't like Antabuse, you won't get seriously ill if you have alcohol in your system. So you can start taking it on your first sober day
