    Dr Jonathan Chick

    Dr Jonathan Chick is a Doctor/ professor in Britain who was in contact with Olivier Ameisen and published articles relating to Baclofen and its use in addiction. As I understand he still practices and that here in Britain he's probably as near as you could get to Olivier himself on account of the former's demise (RIP :'( )

    Basically I get 60mg a day Baclofen from my GP, but I was thinking about paying for a consultation with Dr Chick if possible and seeing if I could deal with a doctor who has dealt with Ameisen and his work first hand, and possibly get a repeat prescription etc etc. from the good Doctor.

    I know this is a long shot but, thanks

    Dr. Chick actually does see patients and prescribes baclofen. He is not a devout follower of Ameisen's, however. Last I heard, he was only willing to prescribe up to 100mg/day. He might have gone higher now, given that France has approved High Dose Baclofen. Who knows? And still, 100mg is better than nothing.

    He will also talk to your doctor so that your regular GP will prescribe it at that dose and you won't have to see Dr. Chick again.

    That's what I've read here. I don't know if there are any UK people around at the moment to fill in if you have more questions.

    Thats what I'd heard too Ne, thats why I want to contact him but even if he only goes up to 100mg it still means i've got his endorsement in it and it makes it cheaper for me to fill in with Baclofen if bought online

    Thanks

    I've met Dr Chick he told me that baclofen probably wasn't my way out, I had been trying HDB. He agreed to prescribe a different medication which was my way out.

    Really enjoyed meeting him, and never looked back. I'm not aware of his current practice but last time I looked him up, he was still active.

    Naltrexone for use as per The Sinclair Method. Works for some, but not for others. It made a huge difference for me, got me back in control and eventually abstinent. I have 26 almost 27 months completely AF and counting. I'm also completely med & drug free (you don't take it if you don't drink, and I've avoided using other mind altering drugs. Not an easy path, but I'm the type to go headlong in).
    I used the Sinclair Method to beat my alcoholic drinking.

    Drank within safe limits for almost 2 years
