[Treatment of alcohol withdrawal symptoms: a clinical study (author's transl)].

[Article in French]


A total of 24 patients (20 men and 4 women) were treated for varying degrees of alcoholism. Tiapride was administered orally as 300 to 600 mg/day to 22 patients, the other two cases receiving i.v. injections followed by oral doses. Tiapride was extremely well-tolerated and no side-effects were noted. Withdrawal symptoms were effectively reduced, and a significant action was noted against tremor. Tiapride was also effective against depression and anxiety, and hallucinations disappeared in two cases.
