Dear lybrate-user, Many psychiatrists are trained in addiction medicines. It is better that you consult one of them. First 1-2 weeks, focus will be on assessment or body health, motivational level, admission to hospital and treatment of withdrawal symptoms. Then for next 9-12 months, he will be given anti-craving medicines and focus will be on prevention of lapses and relapses. For Disulfiram, you need to take him into confidence and take his consent. Alcohol disulfiram interaction can be severe that needs instant treatment. It causes aversion to alcohol and he will be scared to drink alcohol. This needs to be done under the continued guidance by psychiatrist. It will be good for him if his motivational level is high.

Sir, When I drink alcohol. Disulfiram reaction show me on my face but my family says they are not giving me any medicine like this. Is it possible.

Dear Neeraj, It is nice that you get disulfiram reaction on you face itself. It is a good aversion for you not to drink alcohol. For that benefit only, disulfiram was given originally. Disulfiram has a long half life - that means, after stopping disulfiram, for it to leave your body it takes time. So it is possible for you to have its reaction, even without disulfiram. It takes more time to leave your body, if your liver has not improved after stopping alcohol. Disulfiram gets digested in liver to reach the blood and nerves. If your liver functions have improved, especially GGT less than 40, you can be more sure that disulfiram will get out of your body within a week or 10 days. If liver functions well, it will throw away the alcohol your drank within 1/2 hour also. It is always safe for you not to drink at all or stop when the reaction starts itself. If you continue drinking, it can even become fatal.

How many days the disulfiram effective? Means he should not drink to avoid vomiting nausea. Is any other antabuse types of drug for smoking also.

Disulfiram is a good friend. He ask you daily don't take alcohol as disulfiram is with u. For smoking cessation such aversion phenomena is not seen with medicine but many other options available. Like nicotine patch, vernicline tablet, nicotine replacement lozeng.

Disulfiram tablet is taken for curbing the habit of excessive drinking. This tablet is not a solution to alcohol abuse and as such shouldn't be given for longer periods. Its task is to eliminate the habit of drinking in a conditioned individual by developing averse reactions in his body so that the body starts to avoid alcohol.

Dear sir, one of my family member is severe alcohol addicted can I give him disulfiram od .Or guide me any other so that I can help him to quite his habit.

Only strong will power, determination, attending AA meetings and diverting mind when tempted will help you stop alcohol or may need professional help from a psychiatrist or de addiction centre. Try to do meditation and yoga. Read good books and listen to music and if you are believer attend Bhajans Alcohol causes 7 types of cancer, including breast, mouth and bowel cancers. When you drink alcohol, cancer-causing chemicals are formed. Alcohol also affects hormone levels and makes cells even more likely to be damaged by smoking. The less alcohol you drink, the lower the risk of cancer. No type of alcohol is better or worse than another, it is the alcohol itself that leads to the damage, regardless of whether it is in wine, beer or spirits. And drinking and smoking together are even worse for you. Not everyone who drinks alcohol will develop cancer. But on the whole, scientists have found that some cancers are more common in people who drink more alcohol than others. Every year, alcohol causes 4% of cancers .Tips to cut down on alcohol. There are lots of simple ways to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink. It can help to work out if there are particular times or situations when you tend to have a drink, whether that’s a bad day at work or a weekly pub quiz tradition, and plan what you’ll say and do differently next time. Have more alcohol-free days a week. For liver health it’s best to have at least 2 days off alcohol in a row each week. Try agreeing on certain days with your partner or a friend and help each some wi other and stick to it. If you are planning to drink alcohol, decide on a limit in advance and make sure you don’t go over it. Swap every other alcoholic drink for a soft one – starting with your first drink. Try shandy instead of a pint of beer, or swap ne for soda and have a spritzer. Don’t stock up on beer, wine or spirits at home. Finish one drink before pouring another, because topping up drinks makes it harder to keep track of how much you’ve had and when you planned to stop. Avoid buying drinks in rounds, that way you don’t have to keep pace with anyone. Tell a friend or partner that you’re cutting down on alcohol, they can support you – or even join you.

My father is a heavy drinker. He is around 62 years old. We have given him disulfiram and 1ayurvedic powder without his knowledge but he did not stop drinking. Is there any other thing we can do to stop him drinking? Please help.

Seems highly unlikely. Never heard of a person taking disulfiram and alcohol, as the interaction can be life threatening. Try getting admitting your father in a licensed de-addiction centre as in patient and detox him.

I have been given antabuse (disulfiram) without my knowledge. I am not a regular drinker of alcohol by a social drinker. I need to put out the effects caused by the antabuse while taking my drink. Please help me.

No you can't nullify the effects of antabuse. You should go back to the doctor who prescribed this medication and ask why you were not informed: it is absolutely necessary that you know and so does your spouse or family. The reaction can be dangerous if you indulged in any form of drinking. I am quite sure that you would not have been prescribed this medication without there being quite some indulgence in alcohol.

I have a anatabuse / disulfiram implant in my body, and am still drinking alcohol. Exactly what damage am I doing to what organs?

You are putting your liver and nerves at risk for serious damage. Also you are putting yourself at risk for a severe disulfiram reaction which could lead to fall in blood pressure and sudden death too.

Disulfiram tablet 3 din se le rhe hai par koi asar nai dikh rha hai please help sir.

Disulfiram tablet 3 din se le rhe hai par koi asar nai dikh rha hai please help sir.
Disulfiram acts by producing unpleasant symptoms after ingestion of alcohol. Repetitively experiencing unpleasant symptoms after taking alcohol makes a person quit alcohol. It does not produce any mental change by itself. Anyway, 3 days is a very short time period to anticipate any behavioural change. CAUTION: Disulfiram can be potentially lethal. Use only as advised by your Doctor.
