Use of potentiated preparations to relieve alcohol and opium withdrawal syndromes

Bull Exp Biol Med. 2003 Jan;135 Suppl 7:163-6. doi: 10.1023/a:1024704913575.


The efficiency of potentiated preparations from ethanol and morphine hydrochloride in the therapy of patients with alcohol and opium withdrawal syndromes was compared in an open clinical trial. Potentiated ethanol relieved the major clinical manifestations, possessed hypnagogic properties, and reduced the severity of neurological and vegetative disorders in patients with the alcohol withdrawal syndrome. Potentiated morphine produced the anxiolytic, myorelaxing, and analgetic effects. Test preparations did not cause side effects.
