years old.
Interactions: None observed in pharmacokinetic studies with diazepam, disulfiram,
oxazepam, tetrabamate, meprobamate or imipramine. In clinical trials, Campral has been
safely administered with antidepressants, anxiolytics, hypnotics, sedatives and non-opioid
analgesics. The concomitant intake of alcohol and Campral does not affect the
pharmacokinetics of either alcohol or Campral; administration with food diminishes the
