Dizone side effects

my brother is alcoholics, one of my friend suggested this tablet, before giving this tablet to my borther I would like to know what are the side effects of this tablet. Should we consult docter before taking this tablet or we can give him directley ## The doctor should be consulted, because of the way this medication works and the risk of side effects.

Esperal implant

I want to know that how much time disulfiram releases from ESPERAL implant and where it is implanted? I also want to know the name of the manufacturer of Esperal. ## One manufacturer that I have found listed for the implants is Laboratoires Thersa in France, however, I do not know if they still make it. I also cannot discover how often or how much is released by them, nor the location they are implanted. It does not appear to be used in this manner in the U.S., so there isn't a lot of details available. Does anyone else know anything? ## I am also looking for Disulfiram implants for my husband. All I have found so far is a clinic in Europe alustonhealth.com/disulfiram-implants 10 x 100mg pellets are implanted under the skin. It works for at least 1 year. ## Hi, I just want to know i...

my brother is a cronich alkocholic all family is safering.. doktor prescribe esperal implant could please tell us side efects and where to find in our country ther i sno possibility.. ## The biggest advantage of Esperal comparing to Disulfiram (Antabuse) pills is that it does not maintain a level of Disulfiram in the blood stream. Esperal is a microchip that tests blood stream for ethanol concentration around the clock and only if this level goes up, which means that the patient consumed alcohol, Esperal drops one crystal of highly concentrated Disulfiram and the reaction starts. Which means that Esperal has virtually no side effects. In my practice, I had only one patient from almost one thousand who violated the rules and activated the implant. ## Do you have there any testimonials fr...

disulfiram and painting with chemicals

hi I would like to start using this drug but I am a painter and I am exposed to different kid of chemicals containing alcohol. Do you have any experience in this? Apparently you should not use even perfumes or basically anything what contains alcohol and as a painter I am exposed to a lot of fumes Thanks for you help in advance ## The main concern is alcohol, and if you are absorbing it, because it can worsen some of the side effects, according to NIH reports, which could include flushing, headache, nausea, vomiting, and flushing. Thus, I think you might be better to served to speak to your doctor about other possible treatment options. Alternatively, wearing a painter's mask may also help prevent some of the symptoms. How are you doing? Have you started taking it, yet?

esperal disulfiram tablets

what should we do for the side effects caused by esperal disulfiram tablets?? ## #1 - Esperal is not a tablet. Esperal is a microchip that checks bloodstream for alcohol and if a patient consumes alcohol and this level goes above the normal limits Esperal infuse Disulfiram in a bloodstream. #2 - don't drink while on Esperal and you will have no side effects. #3 - Disulfiram Ethanol Reaction (DER) activated by Esperal lasts for as long as 4-6 hours and can't be stopped.

esperal 500mg

dosage ## Esperal contains the active ingredient Disulfiram and is most commonly used to treat alcholism. Common side effects may include: nausea, metallic taste in mouth and drowsiness. When treatment is first started, it is usually taken once daily, in a maximum dose of 500mgs for 2 weeks, then adjusted accordingly by your doctor. Are there any comments or questions? ## Esperal contains only 5 crystals of the dry disulfiram. The reaction on this drug is cruel, but the good thing is that if the Esperal patient remains off alcohol, Esperal does not maintain the level of Disulfiram in a blood stream. It works around the clock checking the patient's blood stream for alcohol and only if the concentration of Ethanol goes above 0.08 Esperal drops one crystal of the medicine into the loca...

esperal message for above question

I used Refusal very successful in Holland, now I am in Bosnia where they only have Esperal. Good luck, alcoholism is a very difficult disease. Be careful with implant, I heard it really has risks. But better then drinking! Ronald ## Hi Ronald, You're absolutely right about alcoholism being a difficult disease to kick out of habit. However, I've heard that this type of treatment can be a real success for many people. I haven't actually seen any medications by the name of "Refusal" listed on the web, but that could be because I'm located here in the US and not EU. Apparently Esperal (disulfiram) works by creating what most drinkers would consider to be an unpleasant reaction to alcohol, eventually lessening one's desire to continue drinking. It's supposed t...

How Long The Treatment Of Disulfiram Be Given To Patient

my brother is being kept on disulfiram for deadddiction of alchohole. i want to know that for how long he be kept on disulfiram. our intention is he should e kept for that much long time that here after he should not turn to his old habbit of consuming alchohole. ## My suggestion is that he take it for the rest of his life. There is no harm it in. One pill a day sure beats falling off the wagon and losing friends, job, money, family, etc. There is too much to risk, and too much to gain. Stick with what works.
