Well, unless her GP is a genius with a plan (which is unlikely), I am worried she's just doing it all wrong and getting mixed messages. She's taking the acamprosate to be abstinent, then the nalmefene if she fancies a drink (to suppress the urge) then just drinking without either and ending up in hospital because no one is giving her consistent or relevant information.
There are studies that efficacy increases with using both Nal and Campral. They are different and attack the problem from two different angles. I take Campral, but not to the prescribed levels... 6 pills a day is a bit much for me. Campral works on repair, while Nal +TSM hits it from a different angle. www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12511176
