Anti-Epilepsy Drug Might Help Heavy Drinkers Limit Their Booze, University of Pennsylvania Study
An anti-epilepsy drug might help problem drinkers reduce their alcohol consumption, according to new research. The study of the drug topiramate (Topamax) included 138 heavy drinkers who were divided into two groups. About half took Topamax for 12 weeks at a maximum dose of 200 milligrams a day, while the other half took an inactive placebo. Both groups of patients underwent brief counseling to help them reduce their drinking.
