|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Alcoholism||Drug: Acamprosate||Phase 4|
Aims and objectives:
To provide a framework for investigating the hypothesis that for those patients undergoing alcohol detox in primary care adding acamprosate to a reducing regimen of a benzodiazepine (chlordiazepoxide) provides better symptom control during detox compared with benzodiazepine alone. In addition we will assess improvement in sleep, drinking outcomes, completion rates and cognitive performance.
Specific primary aim:
This feasibility study aims to inform a full application for an RCT to compare the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of acamprosate as an adjunctive treatment for benzodiazepines for alcohol detox in primary care.
Key objectives are to:
- determine the optimal method of recruiting patients in primary care and estimate likely recruitment rate
- investigate feasibility of completion of and variation in our proposed primary outcome measure in the community - Clinical Institute of Withdrawal Scale-Alcohol (symptoms during detox), and secondary outcome measures - drinking during first month (via diary to derive % days abstinent), completion of detox, sleep and cognitive performance.
- investigate patient and GP acceptability of this randomised trial using qualitative measures.
