Críticas:

When an alcoholic doctor began experimenting with Baclofen, he made what could be the medical breakthrough of the century ( OBSERVER, May 2010)

In seeking to cure his own alcoholism, Ameisen has made a breakthrough in helping addicts. His book is both a personal memoir and a call for research into the muscle relaxant Baclofen, which both helped Ameisen and shows great promise in helping sufferer ( BOOKSELLER)

[Olivier Ameisen] has done extraordinary things. . . I'm receiving hundreds of emails all the time from doctors and former addicts saying [Baclofen] has changed their life ( Dr Jonathan Chick, Consultant psychiatrist for NHS Lothian Alcohol Problem Services and chief editor of ALCOHOL AND ALCOHOLISM, BIG ISSUE (Scotland), April 2009)

Dr Olivier Ameisen is a remarkable medical researcher who shares his journey from profound alcohol addiction to sobriety in this fascinating book. He writes in a well-educated informative style, describing his own personal experience whilst usefully inco ( Alcohol and Alcoholism Advance Access, March 2009)

Reseña del editor:

Dr Olivier Ameisen was a brilliant cardiologist and running his own successful practice when he developed a profound addiction to alcohol. Fearing for his life, he immersed himself in AA, rehab and therapy. Nothing worked. So he did the only thing he could; he took his treatment into his own hands. Searching for a cure for his deadly disease, he happened upon baclofen, a muscle relaxant that had been used safely for years as a treatment for various types of muscle spasticity, but had more recently shown promising results in studies with laboratory animals addicted to a wide variety of substances.

Dr Ameisen prescribed himself the drug and experimented with increasingly higher doses until he finally reached a level high enough to leave him free of any craving for alcohol. That was more than six years ago. Baclofen, as prescribed under a doctor's care, could possibly help many addicts. But as long as the medical and research establishments ignore a cure for one of the most deadly diseases in the world, we won't be able to understand baclofen's full potential. This book is a plea for research that can rescue millions from the scourge of addiction.
