My boyfriend has been in icu 14 days now suffering from dt. He doesn't seem to be improving, how long can this go on? He is still trapped, confused

No set time: Unfortunately, delirium tremens can go on for indefinite periods of time, despite treatment. I presume the DTs are related to alcohol.

My thoughts are w/ you, but thank you for posting on HealthTap. ...Read more

I drink 6 beers every night. The next day I feel fine. I am in good shape and eat well. Its been 24 hours and I am fine. Am I still in danger of DT's?
