Olivier Ameisen wrote a book about the muscle relaxant baclofen called The End of My Addiction. Ameisen had tried many antidepressants and benzos and rehab and AA. None of them helped much. Then he tried baclofen. When he got to a high enough dose, it eliminated the depression and anxiety that was driving him to drink.

I took baclofen for muscle spasms in my lower back, and it eliminated my depression and anxiety, probably because it increases striatal dopamine levels. After I'd been taking it for a week, it started to cause terrible insomnia, so I had to stop taking it. But I'm extremely sensitive to stimulants, so baclofen might not have this effect on most people.
