The paper presents an overview of the available research literature on the application of calcium channel blockers (CCB) in the treatment of alcohol withdrawal syndromes. Such studies are not numerous and they usually have some methodological flaws. Reported results suggest a rather limited effectiveness of CCBs in the treatment of withdrawal syndromes. At the same time, the treatment involves a rather high risk of undesirable side effects.
