The results of picamilon clinical investigations while treating different states in
patients with alcoholism are analyzed. Some data are reported about the positive effect of the drug for interrupting of alcoholic abstinent
syndrome, chronic asthenic disorders after grave abstinent states and asthenic, astheno-neurotical and subdepressive disorders in patients with alcoholism in remission. The rather high activating and psychoregulating effects of
picamilon were observed. While by interrupting of abstinent disorders
picamilon produced the same positive effect in patients with 2 and 3 stage of alcoholism the comparative estimation of its influence out of abstinence and in remission indicated that
picamilon was most effective in treating patients with grave 2-3 and 3 stages of diseases.
It is presumed that picamilon application in complex therapy of patients with alcoholism is advisable.
