Why is Antabuse Used?

Antabuse is a type of medication that is often prescribed for those with problems relating to excessive use of alcohol. The idea is that this medication will interfere with it and cause a person to become ill. It is often prescribed to those that are part of outpatient alcohol treatment programs. In some instances the use of this medication may be court ordered such as for those who have been charged with a DUI or DWAI.

Antabuse Dosage and Usage Instructions

It is very important to take Antabuse every day for the best results when trying to quit drinking alcohol. If the use of it is court ordered the individual may have to report to a specific location daily to take it. The same may be true if they are part of an outpatient alcohol recovery program.

The recommended dose of Antabuse to be taken varies. It will depend on the assessment for the individual. A low dose may be initially given, then increased. As a person is doing better and not wanting alcohol all the time that dose will start to be reduced over a period of time until they are completely weaned off of it.

Antabuse Precautions

It is important to note that a person may go for several weeks without taking Antabuse. However, should they consume alcohol it can still be in their system and make them very ill. It is recommended to continue taking this medication as long as the medical professionals ask. It is important to remember that some products including food items and cough medications can contain levels of alcohol in them.
