I am a recovered alcoholic. I have been sober for 35 years. No drugs either. My new shrink wants me to try this drug to help stop my sugar addiction (yes, it's real). Sugar was my first drug and alcohol was just a faster delivery system to the brain.
I live on sugar and am overweight with high blood pressure so the shrink thinks i should try this. First he had me on topamax and i reacted badly to that and now he wants me to try this. I am reading about the drug and it seems like overkill. And this is my brain chemistry we are experimenting on, not his.
Has anyone hear of the drug being used for sugar addiction? Personally, I don't think there is a magic pill that can wire my brain differently. I have been this way forever.
