Management of Gamma-Butyrolactone dependence with assisted self-administration of GBL


Meyer, Rafael; Jenewein, Josef; Boettger, Soenke (2014). Management of Gamma-Butyrolactone dependence with assisted self-administration of GBL. Case Reports in Neurological Medicine, 2014(485178):online.

Abstract

Gamma-hydroxybutyric acid (GHB) and its liquid precursor gamma-butyrolactone (GBL) have become increasingly popular beyond the clubbing culture resulting in daily consumption and dependence in the broader population. This case report illustrates the challenges of managing GHB-withdrawal and a possibly superior future approach of its management by titration and tapering of the addictive agent.
