Hi. Your husband needs to get to the ER

He most likely is in severe alcohol detoxification and he may have a serious liver problem combined with a muscle wasting problem called rhabdomyolisis which can severely damage his kidneys.

He needs hospitalization for IV fluids, thiamine, folate, and Librium so please get him to a hospital now

Let me know if you need more information please
