Hello. From just size of liver you cannot comment. You need to assess it with liver function test. If you quit, liver enzymes which if raised can be reversed to normal but it takes time which also depends on what liver changes you have. I would suggest seeking professional help to help you go through detoxification and help you remain sober.

The reaction of disulfiram with alcoho has a wide spectrum your brother seems to have vomiting as predominant problem. It will be worthwhile giving him iv fluids normal saline of iso tonic glcuose saline to keep him hydrated and inj vit b12 in iv form, inj analgesic can be given for headache. If possible he can be taken to a clinic / or day care centre or you can get a compunder/ nurse to do thios at home for 1 day (mainly because of covid)

Hello, no disulfiram is a salt by different names can control alcoholism. Esperal, diazone. You have to be bold for that. As it produces vomit so the person slowly stop alcohol, he thaught my liver is damaged. I have to say yes liver is not well.
