What is Selincro?
Selincro is medicine that contains the active ingredient nalmefene.

There is no risk of becoming dependent on Selincro.
This medication is available for people who do not have physical withdrawal symptoms and who do not require immediate detoxification.
You must record at least 2 weeks of your alcohol consumption before taking your online consultation.
Our Doctors advise that patients taking this medication for the first time have only 14 tablets. Once it has been established that the medication is suitable, then 14 or 28 tablets may then be requested.
How does it work?
The active substance in Selincro, nalmefene, attaches to certain opioid receptors in the brain. Opioid receptors play a role in addiction and, by attaching to them and modifying their activity, nalmefene helps reduce the urge to drink in people accustomed to large amounts of alcohol. Selincro does not prevent the intoxicating effects of alcohol.
