Structual Similarities[edit]

Should there be a section on structural/chemical similarities to taurine? I know it might seem unwarranted, but the effects are nearly identical: GabaA activation, neuroprotection (both excitotoxic and ischemic). Although taurine has more widespread effects, I think it should be brought up that they have very similar receptor activation. 69.205.97.220 (talk) 22:02, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Comment on GA nomination[edit]

Nice to find you here, MessedRocker.

I've made some improvements. Also, I suggest removing the table with the study outcomes. It's generally not a good idea to discuss individual studies in too great detail in encyclopedia articles.--Steven Fruitsmaak (Reply) 15:42, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

A bit later, but I would echo the suggestion to remove the study table, for the same reason. It's too much detail on a single study. Instead I'd recommend a short prose summary of the findings. delldot on a public computer talk 02:40, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

Referencing[edit]

Looking good - any reason why the references are in the "notes" section, and that there is only one real "reference"? Dr Aaron 10:55, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

Good question. Anyways, it was redundant, so I removed it. MESSEDROCKER 11:50, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
I think this article is up there for GA status - I'm going away for a few days, but if it hasn't been reviewed by the time I get back, I'll take another look at it. All the best, Dr Aaron 22:54, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

Tinnitus[edit]

Hi, I suffer from tinnitus and found out some information about Acamprosate while looking for information on the internet. I know nothing about drugs and haven't a medical or pharmacological(?) background. Can someone with the appropriate knowledge check out the information ? It might be worth mentionning (or maybe not). externallink. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.86.19.193 (talk) 22:02, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

There are clinical trials preparing to begin at OHSU--or have all ready begun--under William Martin, PhD. [1] Cole (talk) 17:04, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

Better to have a structure image without explict CH2s?[edit]

Is it better to have a structure image without explict CH2s? What are the Wikipedia rules for drawing structures if any?--ChemSpiderMan (talk) 00:20, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

They're at Wikipedia:WikiProject Chemistry/Structure drawing. Fvasconcellos (t·c) 00:27, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
I've added a structure without explicit hydrogens and in not the calcium salt form, so that the image matches the data in the box. -- Ed (Edgar181) 15:55, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

Rating Start class[edit]

Without anything on contraindications and interactions, very little on side effects, no kinetics, and practically no chemistry, this is far from B class. I'm rating it Start. Sorry I haven't the time for expansion. --ἀνυπόδητος (talk) 20:49, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
