Best alcoholism medication: Antabuse pills
Antabuse (disulfiram) can be taken by people that are trying to quit drinking but need additional help with that. At least 12 hours are supposed to pass from the moment you last had some alcohol, even a very small amount. You may experience reactions to Antabuse even up to 2 weeks after you stopped taking it, so make sure you avoid drinking alcohol within this period of time. Thirst, chest pain, low blood pressure, fast heartbeats, flushing, vertigo, and nausea will occur if you drink any amounts of alcohol after taking Antabuse. Antabuse is FDA pregnancy category C which means it is not known for sure whether it can affect the health on an unborn baby or not. Make sure you always talk to your doctor in case of being pregnant to avoid any dangerous health effects of your unborn child. Taking more of Antabuse is not going to make your treatment more efficient - make sure you always observe the dose prescribed. An overdose of Antabuse can cause the following symptoms: tingling, numbness, dizziness, nausea, loss of coordination, vomiting, or seizures, and you are supposed to seek emergency medical help. There is no need to worry if you experience some minor side effects such as impotence, mild drowsiness, tiredness, acne, skin rash, swollen or sore tongue, or mild headaches, as they are short-lived.
