In brief: No
There are 4 approved medications to reduce craving for alcohol - acamprosate (campral) is a pill taken 3 times a day; Naltrexone (revia) is a pill taken once a day, and vivitrol is a long-acting form of Naltrexone which is injected once every 4 weeks.
The fourth is the oldest- antabuse, (disulfiram) a pill which will cause nausea, vomiting, headache and other symptoms if you drink on top of it.
