Antabuse (disulfiram) has been designed for the treatment of alcoholism, especially chronic alcoholism when the patient drinks a lot systematically and this can harm their general health condition. Make sure you always inform your health care provider of any cases when you drank alcohol, especially if that happened less than 12 hours ago. In that case make sure you wait for 12 hours and only then take Antabuse, otherwise you will get mental confusion, sweating, nausea, vomiting, choking, flushing of the face, chest pain, anxiety, blurred vision, difficulty breathing, headache, and weakness. Tell your doctor if you have any contraindications - such as a history of an allergic reaction to disulfiram, or pregnancy - before starting the treatment. Make sure you mention fact of taking lithium, monoamine oxidase inhibitors, warfarin, theophylline, metronidazole, isoniazid, phenytoin, or tricyclic antidepressants, as interactions have been reported that can affect the success of your treatment. Please make sure to tell your doctor if you have any medical conditions that may require a dose adjustment. The following medical conditions will need to be reported: diabetes, epilepsy, thyroid disease, brain damage, kidney or liver disease.
