Hi there, thanks for asking. You can continue a benzodiazepine
which is absolutely better to be prescribed by your doctor ( to give a benzodiazepine which is not metabolized by your liver preferably and also considering other factors) to be able to tolerate the withdrawal symptoms
of alcohol abstinence. Almost in all the cases situation is reversible when it has taken just four years. Alcohol abstinence can lead to improvement from depression
as well. You may ask your doctor to check your B12 level since it could be low in alcohol dependence
. I wish you a good health.
