Epilepsy Drug May Help Alcoholics Recover from Dependence

by Lynn Shapiro, Writer | August 04, 2008

"These results raise more questions for us to explore, including the potential impact of gabapentin on people who are in recovery from alcohol dependence but do not report insomnia," he says.

The team has begun such a study, and is recruiting people who have a history of heavy drinking but have been sober for three to 12 weeks. These volunteers will spend a total of six nights in the recently opened eight-bed U-M Sleep & Chronophysiology Laboratory, and will receive study medication for one week. They'll also keep a sleep diary for 20 days, wear a wristwatch-like device to track their daily sleep/wake cycles, and come back for a follow-up visit. More information on this study is available at 734-232-0237 or by e-mailing dreamteam(at)umich.edu.
