Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
The dose of accamprosate and naltima that you are taking too less and you need to consult your psychiatrist to prescribe the required doses of accamprosate and naltima. Self control iis very important and there is no such medicine which has absolute potency to stop alcohol. Balcofen is also emerging as a good anti craving drug.
Fill your free time with work and exercises. Eat health and maintain a sober peer group. Try becoming a member of alcohol anonymous.
