Re: Best meds to deal with alcohol withdrawl...

Have you ever tried to quit before, and if so, how long were you able to abstain? Do you ever drink in the morning? The general rule of thumb is that addiction specialists double the amount you report drinking to get a more accurate assessment. You may need to go into detox first and then have a follow-up plan. Depending upon your doctor's awareness of the extent of your drinking, it is unlikely that she will give you anything more than a few day's supply of librium or ativan.
