If you live in Europe, the prescription-only, opioid antagonist medication that may be prescribed for you is called nalmefene (Selincro), which is manufactured by Lundbeck. It is the first medication to be approved specifically for the reduction of alcohol consumption. Other different medications that are available, such as Acamprosate and Disulfiram (Antabuse), are only prescribed for use in conjunction with abstinence, as is naltrexone which is the other opioid antagonist medication that is suitable for use with The Sinclair Method. In order for naltrexone to be used for this method, most physicians would have to prescribe it 'off-label' and so will generally always look to prescribe Selincro in the first instance.
European Marketing Approval for Selincro was issued in February 2013, granting European-wide licensing approval for the medication. The medication has been rolled out across the vast majority of the EU member states and, at the time of writing, the Lundbeck website states that Selincro has already been launched in 40 countries.
