Antabuse (disulfiram) for Alcohol Dependence: “500 mg per day appear to make me very drowsy”

Anonymous (taken for less than 1 month) February 3, 2018

For Alcohol Dependence: “Went on Antibuse to try to save my job after having 1 incident at work. I was unlawfully fired. Went and completed in and out patient programs. After 2 months of being on the drug I started to stumble when walking, loosing weight, talking funny, becoming very week and tired. It came to the point where I am unable to walk without a walker or use a wheelchair. After much testing Dent found the cause of my health conditions to be Antibuse. Stopped taking it. Condition has worsened. I have seizures and recently developed a uncontrollable jerking of my arms. So instead of saving my job I lost everything. My health. My marriage. My house and the ability to do anything I enjoyed in life. I’m lucky to have a father and sister that assist me in everyday living.”

Antabuse (disulfiram) for Alcohol Dependence: “Been a ‘problem drinker’ for a long time. Alcohol is EVERYWHERE, its just too hard to have the willpower never to pick it up again, and one drink leads to many more. Antabuse should be advertised more. I wish more people new about it. I borrowed some from a friend who was done with it (yes, I know I should have seen a doctor). It works fabulously. Of course I experimented to see the affect. A half glass of beer and my face and eyes would turn red, my heart beat would increase, my breathing would change, and some degree of fatigue and dizziness might ensue. It keeps me in check in the way I want, and I’ve got my excuses not to drink line up when the situations arise. I find my self eating healthier and no hangovers!”

Antabuse (disulfiram) for Alcohol Dependence: “I’ve been occasional drinker for 10 years and that turned into another 10 years of everyday drinking. 1.5 L of wine or 350 oz of hard liquor together with 3 bottles of 0.5L of beer. Didn’t have a willpower to quit on my own ( tried too many times). 500 mg of disulfiram (Antabuse) once a day along with 2 mg of Ativan solved my issue. I got my life back. I will recommend this combination to everyone who wants to get their life, dreams, family back. I would recommend not to chose a time, day or date (e.g. January 01, first day of each month or next day after birthday). Get those pills, wake up in the morning or on your way from work and just take that ONE pill!!!!”

Antabuse (disulfiram) for Alcohol Dependence: “I have attempted sobriety several times, all resulting in returning to alcohol. I attempted Antabuse once and panicked. I have learned from my experiences. I have been sober for over 3 months now, started Antabuse two weeks ago. Now it is my system I could not rate it high enough but would stress being in the correct state of mind is essential. I have not succeeded in the past but am extremely confident that I can and will this time.SIDE EFFECTS OF ANTABUSETirednessHeadachesSpotsSIDE EFFECTS OF ALCOHOLBlackoutsVomitingHangoversMemory LossCostTime in HospitalLoss of Bladder/Bowel ControlPhysical Damage to self (accidents, broken bones)SeizuresEmbarrassment After effects due to behavior whilst drunk.PREFERENCE?”
