What abstinence medication would be most appropriate for WG?
WG is a 41-year-old female brought herself into the ER last night asking to “detox from vodka.” She tells you she has a long-standing history of alcohol dependence with multiple relapses. WG has made it through withdrawal without complications thanks to an appropriate management regimen. She would like to consider pharmacological treatment to maintain abstinence. Her LFTs have normalized now that she has been alcohol-free for the past week. She reports taking disulfiram during previous rehabilitation attempts but was unsuccessful, most likely because of adherence issues. Her medical chart indicates she has great insurance so prescriiption copayments shouldn’t be a problem. What abstinence medication would be most appropriate for WG?
