Yale doc tests drug that could stop you from getting drunk5/15/2012
Researchers at Yale University are testing a pill that could keep you from getting drunk -- but wait before sprinting to your local bar for that last beer. The drug, called iomazenil, is designed to stop brain cells from suffering the effects of booze. Men ages 21-35 will be given the drug, followed by alcohol, then will be asked to "drive" on a simulator, The Independent reports. If iomazenil works like Dr. Deepak D'Souza thinks it might, college students needn't worry about their keggers morphing into Kierkegaard class. The drug would be used to help alcoholics fight their addictions, not bring sobriety to the masses.
How useful will this drug be if it works?
