Expect Ethanol Use for Alcohol Withdrawal to Keep Dwindling
You may need to remove ethanol products...beverages (beer, etc) or solution for compounding...from your pharmacy's stock.
That's because there's a renewed push to stop using ethanol to prevent or treat alcohol withdrawal.
Ethanol doesn't work as well as benzodiazepines (lorazepam, etc) for withdrawal. Plus it's tricky to dose...and can damage the liver and other organs.
