Details

Generic Antabuse is used for treating chronic alcoholism and it interferes with the metabolism of alcohol that results in unpleasant effect when alcohol is consumed. The unpleasant effect includes headache, flushing of face, chest pain, vomiting, nausea, blurred vision, weakness, sweating, difficulty in breathing, anxiety, etc. These effects are shown within 10 minutes after the intake of alcohol and can last for more than one hour.

Generic Antabuse is not known for curing alcoholism, rather it only discourages drinking.

Alcohol, under normal metabolism, is broken down in the liver with the help of enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase to acetaldehyde. This acetaldehyde is then converted to acetic acid by the action of acetaldehyde dehydrogenase. Disulfiram blocks these reactions by blocking the action of acetaldehyde dehydrogenase. Disulfiram increases the concentration of acetaldehyde to five to ten times in the blood after the intake of alcohol, when compared without disulfiram. Disulfiram is slowly absorbed through the digestive tract and also slowly eliminated by the body. Therefore, its effects remain for long time after the initial intake.

Generic Antabuse should be stored at 20° to 25°C and away from light & moisture. It should be kept away from kid and pet. If the medicine is not used from long time or it is expired then, it should be properly discarded with the help of local waste disposal company.
