Baclofen has been used in a number of instances to reduce alcohol cravings. In animal studies, this drug has suppressed the severity of alcohol withdrawal. It suppressed the intensity of alcohol withdrawal syndrome in rats physically dependent on alcohol.
Also, researchers in Italy examined the effects of this drug in humans in a small case study series for 30 days. With the use of baclofen, all patients experienced a rapid reduction in symptoms as shown by reduced withdrawal scores and reductions in blood pressure and pulse rates.
After 30 days, all patients were without withdrawal symptoms and alcohol-free. Lioresal was well tolerated; three patients experienced transient drowsiness within 30 to 60 minutes after lioresal administration during the first week of treatment.
Researchers concluded that baclofen, in a dose lower than that for the treatment of muscle spasms, produced a rapid disappearance of alcohol withdrawal in all five people in this study.
