Antabuse

Antabuse, also known as Antabus in other countries, is the brand name for the drug Disulfiram, currently manufactured by Odyssey Pharmaceuticals for the treatment of alcoholism.


Antabuse (a.k.a. Antabus) is disulfiram. In the US, disulfiram (Antabuse) is a prescription drug.

In the body, alcohol is turned into acetaldehyde (CH3-OH) which is the toxin responsible for hangover symptoms. Your body works to break acetaldehyde down into acetic acid, to eliminate the aldehydes. The aldehydes are also responsible for some of the characteristic bad smells associated with alcoholism.

Antabuse is designed to PREVENT the body from breaking down the aldehydes. The result is a hangover MUCH SOONER or much worse than normal. So if you are on antabuse and drink, you feel crappy faster.

A list of what you feel if you drink while on antabuse is similar to a list of bad hangover symptoms: Flushing, Nausea, Throbbing Headache, Trouble Breathing, Vomiting, Sweating, Thirst, Dyspnea, Syncope, Uneasiness, Weakness, Vertigo, Hyperventilation, Tachycardia, Hypotension, Blurred Vision, Confusion, Throbbing in the Head and Neck, Chest Pain, Palpitations.
