    Antabuse and anesthesia


    Disulfiram was widely used as an aversive agent for treatment of alcohol dependence since its discovery. Various adverse drug reactions have been documented. Psychosis due to disulfiram is not a common side effect. We report two cases of disulfiram associated psychosis. We also highlight the biological mechanism of the psychosis associated with disulfiram use. The Dopamine (DA) hypothesis of schizophrenia states that an increase in DA activity in certain brain areas is associated with psychotic symptoms in schizophrenic patients. The possible explanation for the development of psychosis, might be inhibition of Dopamine-Betahydroxylase (DBH) enzyme due to metabolites of disulfiram. Disulfiram (tetraethylthiuramdisulfide) was accidentally discovered to combine with ethyl alcohol to produce a noxious effect by Jacobsen and Hald, in Denmark, in 1947. After its therapeutic introduction by Martensen-Larsen in 1948, this chemical compound, with the market name of Antabuse, has been used in the treatment of patients suffering from chronic alcoholism in unknown numbers of thousands. As with any new treatment method, an overly enthusiastic reception occurred, with successes reported in 60% to 80% of the patients so treated and followed for six months to a year. However, the enthusiasm has diminished, until now the recovery rates are about the same as those reported for other therapeutic modalities. Unfortunately, rather than helping those who did not benefit from other techniques, disulfiram works best with those patients who generally do better with any type of treatment.

    A disulfiram-like drug is a drug that causes hypersensitivity to alcohol leading to nausea, vomiting, flushing, dizziness, throbbing headache, chest and abdominal discomfort, and general hangover-like symptoms among others. The prototypical drug of this group is disulfiram (brand name Antabuse), which acts as an acetaldehyde dehydrogenase inhibitor, preventing the metabolism of acetaldehyde into acetic acid, and is used in the treatment of alcoholism. Many disulfiram-like drugs act as inhibitors of acetaldehyde dehydrogenase similarly to disulfiram. However, some do not act via inhibition of this enzyme, and instead act via other, poorly elucidated mechanisms. Unlike acetaldehyde dehydrogenase inhibitors and other disulfiram-like drugs, alcohol dehydrogenase inhibitors such as fomepizole (brand name Antizol) inhibit the metabolism of alcohol into acetaldehyde, thereby increasing and extending the effects of alcohol and reducing its toxicity. Patients with substance use disorders are more likely to have chronic medical comorbidities, including pain-related disorders (e.g., arthritis, headaches, and lower back pain), and psychiatric conditions, resulting in increased health care utilization and cost. In 2014, among an estimated 22.5 million adults age 12 or older who needed substance use treatment, only 4.1 million (18%) received treatment. Of those who received substance use treatment in 2014, 2.6 million (63%) received treatment at a facility, while 780,000 (19%) received treatment at a private doctor’s office. Anti-relapse medications and medication-assisted treatment (MAT) can be effective in improving treatment outcomes in patients with substance use disorders. Primary care physicians can play an important role for patients during transitions of care by prescribing anti-relapse medications and MAT while patients await intake into specialized treatment facilities. This article will only review Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved medications for alcohol and opioid use disorders. These medications should be used in combination with a psychosocial treatment intervention for substance use disorders.

    I want to know if weight gain is a side affect or I am just one happy SOB that just loves to eat. I have put on 20 lbs and I've been on 150mg for about 1 1/2 years. I love that I’m anxiety free but the weight gain is starting to depress me. Five years ago I started on Zoloft, gained 8 lbs in one month, 15 by the second month, and 30 lbs. I'm only 5'2" so 30 lbs is like 60 on me. I began taking it after I had my daughter about 8 months ago. I am slowly coming of this drug only because of weight gain. I had bariatric surgery 4 years ago and this is the biggest I’ve been in 3 years. I was placed on Zoloft 100mg about 5 years ago for severe depression after the loss of my mother. I have now stopped the Zoloft and am beginning the journey of losing this weight by diet and exercise. Wellbutrin: Very common (10% or more): Weight loss greater than 2.3 kg (up to 28%)Trintellix: Common (1% to 10%): Decreased appetite/weight loss Best regards, Wildcat I've actually been forced recently to stop taking this medication because of some insurance issues. Currently on 75mg daily, forced on Lipitor, and Sex just forget that. Brett Court hi I have also seen huge weight gain on taking these pills I have not changed anything I do eating wise but the weight is just piling on and this is making me more depressed as I used to suffer with anorexia so its not a good combo for me I've been on 25 mg of Zoloft for 6 months. Normally by February I can lose the usual 8-10 lb holiday weight gain. My doctor told me I'm ok with my blood work, but my iron is low. I topped the scales at 200 lbs while taking the drug and my usual BP of 120/70 rose up to 140/90 due to weight gain. Then two years ago I started crying uncontrollably (overly emotional) so I went back on it and the weight gain persists. You can control how MUCH you gain to a degree but if you're sensitive to the drug some weight gain is inevitable. I have read here mostly people losing weight but not gaining weight. If the sertraline is making you feel good, i would not stop it. There are other meds out there that do not cause weight gain. At the beginning of the year I had gained about 12 lbs, which wasn’t a huge red flag since I hosted most of the holidays at my house and did over eat but here we are 8 weeks later and I’ve put on another 8 lbs. BTW, diet and exercise have little to do with weight gain... in fact, almost ALL psychotropic drugs have this propensity. I read somewhere that this an Zoloft do block the messages sent from your stomach and brain that you are full. I go to the gym as often as possible and have stopped eating most sweets and avoid fried food as well. It's a total lifestyle change, but with discipline and persistents it can be done. I started on 50mg at the end of October and by December I was on 100mg. You would think the weight gain would be motivation for me to exercise but nope I can't get the energy or motivation going. I’ve been on Zoloft for 2 years now and I also gained weight. I am depressed by the weight gain also and trying to find the energy to workout. I half the 100mg tabs and started doing that a year ago to cut back. Everyone reacts differently to every medication but gaining weight on one doesn't mean you'll gain weight on another. I am craving sweets and carbs and never feel satisfied or full. My doctor said he wants to try me on Prozac since they're in the same family. It did the same for me, but weight gain I feel like it creepy up on me. I've always been thin to the point of being able to eat whatever I want and not exercise (about 115 lbs). I had thought my weight gain was still just leftover from my pregnancy.. He said Prozac is the only one that he knows of that doesn't cause weight gain in this class of drug. but I had done anything and everything to try and control it.

    Thanks for info regarding treatment of tendinitis of hand. Oral Prednisone is usually not indicated and often cortisone injection is injected around a tendon to relieve pain. As far as pain control is concerned taking aspirin, naproxen (Alieve) or ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others) may relieve discomfort associated with tendinitis. In addition to that application of ice is beneficial, rest and overwork with effected hand is avoided. Prednisone is what I have and forgot how to take it. Something like 5 the first day 1 every four hours, 4 the second day, 3 the third, 2 the forth, 1 the fifth and 1 the sixth etc. There are several prednisone packs on the market, but the most common is a six day pack, which usually includes 21 pills. These pills are taken 6 pills the first day, 5 pills the second day, 4 pills the third day, 3 pills the fourth day, 2 pills the fifth day, and 1 pill the sixth day. A common timing for each day is: Prednisone is a corticosteroid that forms steroids in the body to help fight off an injury or sickness.
