Need to discuss more personally. Alcoholism in addiction is a disease stage and need good will power and counselling and motivation to withdraw. Tell me privately your family life and all details and whether he has any disease and whether he is willing to stop. Disulfiram will only make drinking an unpleasant experience and create aversion to drinking, but can cause adverse reactions you consult me privately for a personalised advice.

It is the side effect of disulfiram. The use of this drug is only as an aversion agent so that if he takes alcohol while taking the drug he will have unpleasant effects and vomiting. Due to these unhappy effect the person is thought to stop taking further drinks. But only strong will power will help. For further assistance you can concern me privately

My father was drinking alcohol from many more years. So we gave a crotonol 500mg tablet of 7 numbers. After that he is talking like mental upset. After that wat will happens. Please give me suggestion please.

Dear, this medication is used along with counseling and support to treat alcoholism. Crotonol (disulfiram) works by blocking the processing of alcohol in the body. This causes you to have a bad reaction when you drink alcohol. Drowsiness, tiredness, headache, acne, and metallic/garlic-like taste in the mouth may occur as your body gets used to the medication. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly. Your father is mentally upset because of the withdrawal symptoms and the effect of the medicine. Please consult the doctor who prescribed this medicine. Take care.

Hi for a alcohol addiction for 3 yrs. When there is no solution then do you recommend giving crotonol?

Dear Lybrate user, Welcome to Lybrate. Alcohol addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan. Take care.

Hello my husband is addicted to alcohol he has diabetics is that safe to give crotonol to him?

Ideally, the decision to want to quit must come from the addict himself. In this case, there is a danger to his life (being diabetic already), if he continues, and therefore the decision must be made by responsible others. If this is difficult for you, do get the counsel and help of an elderly relative whom he respects and let him do the convincing. If he does not cooperate, then take the decision and call in the rehabilitation center to just take him away. He may be what people refer to as an addict on ‘skid row’ i.e. Only death can stop him – 20% of alcoholics are on skid row, world over. Knowing that someone else responsible has to make that decision for him and will do him the favor of a life-saving course of action, do so without any hesitation. Do not feel any guilt about doing this because you will surely save his life, and perhaps his health. He has to be admitted in a rehabilitation center for at least 6 months to get him out of this habit. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. You will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for your co-dependency issues. You cannot treat him in isolation because you have all gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Your children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father’s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome ACOAs, which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. So you have a lot on your plate and must act effectively and firmly to bring all of you into therapy. If your husband refuses to go for rehabilitation, then some centers have a method of picking him up when he is totally sloshed and is not able to fight back effectively. They will need your written consent before willing to take him in this manner. Make a serious plan with your children and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast.

If you are having disulfiram and drinking after that, you will suffer from vomiting and tiredness. If you aren't drinking, you might need some other medications for the symptoms.

How long can a patient take disulfiram? So that he become fully alcohol dependent.

How long can a patient take disulfiram? So that he become fully alcohol dependent.
Its your will power that will make you alcohol independent. Unless you recognise that its the root cause of all sort of bad thing, it spoil personal life. Its a major cause of accidental death, family issues, even major rape cases the person in drunken, some time he even not spare his own family member. If disulfiram is to be used, the patient must clearly understand the risks of drinking while taking the drug, and the physician and patient must agree about the need for continued clinical supervision and monitoring for efficacy and side effects. The physician must also recognize that disulfiram is only an adjunctive therapy and that continued support, supervision, and other therapeutic measures are required. Disulfiram is probably effective in reducing the frequency of alcohol consumption in the compliant patient over the short term (e.g. 6 months). Certain subgroups of patients, such as those who are older, those who are more socially stable, and those who are well-motivated, may experience a beneficial effect for longer periods. The drug may be most effective in reducing short-term alcohol consumption when the compliance of the patient is supervised, although consideration of this kind of therapy includes the practical problems of supervising the patient and concerns that the supervising person may be placed in a difficult position. Its not magic wick. Ultimate its you who decide and there are ways to avoid it, please try speaking to me.

There are no interactions between the two, you can use them. But consult a psychiatrist before taking prodep as the antidepressants are tailored to the symptoms. All the best.
