Antabuse Overview

Disulfiram (sold under the trade names Antabuse and Antabus) is a drug used to support the treatment of chronic alcoholism by producing an acute sensitivity to ethanol (drinking alcohol). Disulfiram works by inhibiting the enzyme acetaldehyde dehydrogenase, which means that many of the effects of a "hangover" are felt immediately after alcohol is consumed. "Disulfiram plus alcohol, even small amounts, produce flushing, throbbing in head and neck, throbbing headache, respiratory difficulty, na...

Antabuse and weight

I've been taking antabuse for 20 days now, which is truely a blessing, freeing my mind. I haven't thought about alcohol and I truely believe It's helping me in many ways. However, I know what to do to lose weight, and I know how my body works. I'm very health oriented (beside the alcohol binges I took part in) and I can't seem to lose any weight. I've had a rutine for years now, and since the antabuse it has changed, and I notice It. Anyone else notice anything with antabuse and weight? I'd like to hear about It :D Thanks for reading this! ## Have you consulted your doctor? In most cases, people actually lose weight while taking Antabuse, due to the fact that since they aren't drinking their caloric intake is lower and there is less fluid retention. ## Hi...

Started on Antabuse today, still able to drink.

My gracious sister offered to give me my daily dose of Antabuse. I gave her the bottle to keep, partly so that she could that the pill description on the bottle matched what she was giving me. I had not had a drink in about 18 hours, and I did not cheek the pill. I swallowed it. I felt the need to test it about 3 hours later. I had a bucket by my side, just in case. Nothing happened. No flushing or vomiting. It has been about 4 hours. Any ideas?

alcohol dependence treatment

I know others have put down the bottle; why can't I? Have had rehab, probation (that kind of worked as I was tested for alcohol), counseling, antabuse (I have an allergy to it but it worked for me), AA, etc. Prayer and hope. Still struggling. I do not want to die like this. I am 48 years old. ## Hi there, Sorry to hear of your struggles. I am in the same boat. I have lost my job and hit rock bottom. I now take Antabuse and get counselling and I attend regular workshops. I believe the support workshops are helping. My counselor suggested writing - maybe it will help for you too.

Prescription Help Antabuse

I new help finding a provider to prescribe Antabuse. I,be never had a prescription. I've had a lot of trouble with alcohol in the past. Presently seperated from my husband and moved home. One of the conditions of living at home is to take ant abuse daily. Help Snellville,GA ## Hello Ally, I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Based on my research, Disulfiram, the active in ingredient in Antabuse, is a very potent one and can remain in the body for weeks even after it is taken. The reaction it causes can be very critical... even lethal if the user engages in a substantial binge or there is not a hospital nearby. Further, Antabuse by itself has been shown to have almost no effect on alcoholism overall; without additional treatment alcoholics often revert to their original behavi...

disulfiram, placebo?

I have had 3 conssecutive disulfiram implants whitch had a great pshycological effect. I did not drink for these 3, 3 month periods. One day after my fourth implant, something overwhelmingly upset me and I turned to the bottle only to discover I had no known side-effects. That was yesterday. Today I am drinking again. I'm not sure what to make of this. In the beginning I truly believed this is the answer. Now I'm not sure if my doctor is pulling the wool over my eyes or if for some reason my liver still manages to perform its usual duty whilest on treatment. Is there a proffesional that can please shed some light on this? The lives of many depend on my recovery. Thank you kindly
