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 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

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.
