Nalmefene recommended by NICE
Selincro (nalmefene; Lundbeck), a drug that can help people who are dependent on alcohol to cut down on the amount they drink, has been recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). NICE says nalmefene should be available as a treatment for those who regularly drink large amounts of alcohol. The NHS is required to fund the treatment within three months of this decision.
