Alcohol addiction
Dear Doc. My younger brother (age 27) is very much addicted to alcohol. It's been around 2 years that he is addicted. He drinks daily. If he doesn't gets alcohol for a day, his body starts shaking. I am very much concerned about him. Need help for him. Please suggest how can I help him. Thanks

By the history looks like he is dependent on alcohol. Whenever a person who is regularly   drinking alcohol stops suddenly he develops withdrawl symptoms like shaking, sweating, disturbed sleep etc. Initial few days of medications will be required to stop these symptoms.once he is out of the withdrawal phase we have to evaluate and based on that treat further either with counseling or medications.
