What is disulfiram?

Disulfiram is a drug used to treat alcohol use disorder. Disulfiram works by blocking the breakdown of alcohol in the body.

 

Why is disulfiram prescribed?

Disulfiram is used to treat chronic alcoholism. It causes unpleasant effects when even small amounts of alcohol are consumed. These effects include facial flushing, headache, nausea, vomiting, chest pain, weakness, blurred vision, mental confusion, sweating, choking, breathing difficulties and anxiety.

These effects begin about 10 minutes after alcohol enters the body and last for an hour or more.

Disulfiram is not a cure for alcoholism, but it discourages drinking.

This medicine is sometimes prescribed for other purposes as well; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.

 

How does disulfiram work?
