Wonder Drug may be Ineffective in Alcohol Use Disorders

Baclofen has been used since the 1970s as a skeletal muscle relaxant in spasticity associated conditions and recently gained prominence for its possible role in curing alcoholism (affecting the liver), especially as it is well-tolerated, being predominantly excreted by the kidneys. Recent meta-analysis suggests that baclofen may not be very effective in treating alcoholism.
