Buy Antabuse Online - Long-Term Treatment of Alcohol Problems
Antabuse is a simple and smart choice for all who wish not only to fight, but also to overcome alcohol dependence. Antabuse tablets are designed for long-term treatment of alcohol problems.
The drug Antabuse interacts with alcohol and increases the intensity of alcohol intoxication symptoms. Thus, it helps to develop psychological and physiological dislike for alcoholic beverages.
Antabuse enhances such frequent symptoms of alcohol intoxication, as dizziness, shortness of breath, vomiting, palpitations, fever, anxiety, severe itching, or excessive sweating.
In addition, alcohol consumption during the course of Antabuse increases the risk of such severe symptoms of alcohol abstinence, as convulsions, tachycardia, chest pain, arrhythmia, increased blood pressure, or respiratory depression.
- Antabuse enhances the symptoms of drunkenness in about 10-15 minutes after alcohol consumption.
- During the Antabuse course, severe withdrawal symptoms can be observed about 1 hour after the consumption of alcoholic beverages.
If patient completely gives up alcohol while using Antabuse, unpleasant sensations do not arise. If the patient does not maintain complete abstinence from strong drinks, negative reactions cause severe discomfort at first, and then become intolerable.
Before the initiation of anti-alcohol therapy, it is necessary to assess the risks and benefits ratio of Antabuse. In this regard, patients are advised to consult a narcologist and undergo a full medical examination.
Antabuse is contraindicated for patients with the presence or history of certain mental, cardiovascular or other diseases, including: stroke, heart failure, severe personality disorder, hypertension, and brain damage.
Patients with neurological problems, chronic lung diseases, diabetes, partial loss of liver or kidney function, should take Antabuse tablets with caution.
To avoid possible drug interactions, Antabuse is contraindicated to be taken simultaneously with anticoagulants, opioid analgesics, antidepressants, antiepileptic drugs, amphetamine type stimulants, antiasthmatics, and antibiotics.
When patient follows the doctor’s recommendations on the drug use and the dosing regimen, these tablets help to quickly get rid of alcohol dependence. Antabuse should be taken every day at about the same time, in accordance with the following recommendations:
- On the first day of alcoholism treatment, 4 Antabuse 200 mg tablets are taken at once;
- On each subsequent day, the dose is reduced by 1 tablet;
- The maintenance dose is 1 or 0.5 Antabuse tablets, used approximately every 24 hours.
After 6 months of Antabuse use, it is necessary to reconsider the advisability of further anti-alcohol therapy. Antabuse course can be completed earlier than six months, if the primary result was achieved and the patient refused to consume alcohol.
After stopping the use of Antabuse tablets, patient must avoid consuming any strong drinks for at least 2 weeks. Otherwise, severe symptoms of alcohol intoxication may occur, although possibly not as intense, as during the treatment.
The effectiveness of the anti-alcohol therapy depends on strict self-control and external patient’s motivation.
If Antabuse is used together with cognitive-behavioral therapy, the efficacy of the drug therapy for alcoholism is increased. Social and family support during the course of Antabuse helps the patient to achieve and maintain positive results of the anti-alcohol therapy. The help of family and friends also helps to keep the patient's decision to stop drinking.
Antabuse does not directly affect the desire to drink, yet it is one of the best drugs for getting rid of physical and psychological dependence on alcohol. It is highly effective, and, therefore, is widely used in the therapy of alcoholism.
