University of Virginia-Led Research Team Makes Pivotal Breakthrough in Alcohol Addiction Treatment

Topiramate - Wikipedia image

Excerpt: In a landmark study, addiction experts led by a University of Virginia Health System team have found that topiramate [brand name Topamax], an effective therapeutic medication, not only decreases heavy drinking, but it also lowers all liver enzymes, plasma cholesterol, body mass index, and systolic and diastolic blood pressure – all of which tend to increase with heavy drinking and pose such serious health risks as heart disease and cirrhosis.
