Disulfiram is a drug intended for subcutaneous implantation. The active substance disulfiramum is known in Antabuse or Antabus (only oral pills) as well. Its task is to catalyze very unpleasant symptoms for the patient eg: dizziness, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea etc. The symptoms are very annoying but not life threatening. The drug blocks the alcohol metabolism pathway causing the above symptoms after each alcohol consumption. The drug works for about 1 year. The treatment can be carried out after 24 hours alcoholic abstinence. Disulfiram is created to support the treatment of alcoholism. Causes reactions that inhibit the patient from reaching for alcohol in any form (beer, wine, vodka, liqueur, champagne, whiskey, alcohol liqueurs). Disulfiram is a well-known and effective drug for treating addicts. Very effectively supports the psychotherapy that patients can benefit from at meetings of groups AA (Anonymous Alcoholics).
Problems related to alcohol abuse are very broad: social, family and economic complications. Patient should start treatment as soon as possible. Pharmacological medicaments are very effective. We may offer to patients alcoholic detoxification (alcoholic detoxification) prior the implantation of Disulfiram.
We use local anesthesia. 2 cm of skin incision is made in area above the buttock and 10 tablets are implanted under the fascia of the muscle. The procedure is painless for the patient and takes only several minutes. Patients are provided with post-operative recommendations. In addition, patients are prescribed drugs that reduce withdrawal.
Properly implanted tablets are not visible under the skin. You can drive just after the surgery. The drug does not affect the psychomotor ability of the patient. It is advisable to rest at home to completely heal the wound. Please contact us 24h before the planned surgery. If you are interested in our offer for alcohol- dependence people please contact us.
