I have been taking disulfiram for the last year or so. I am pleased to say that it had no side effects for me and worked really well. I admitted to being an alcoholic three years ago. The hardest thing I've ever had to do. I tried support groups, AA, counselling, which helped in the beginning but then discovered disulfiram through my doctor. It was a bit like my life line because I knew whilst on this I couldn't drink and it really helped. I was told I could stay on it for as long as I needed, which was great up until about a month ago, when I went for my repeat prescription and was told that it had now been taken off the market. I've now had to change to a new tablet called campral, which I don't like as I have to take five tablets a day. It works in pretty much the same way. The main reason I'm writing this is to ask if anyone else out there has taken disulfiram and encountered the same problem and also does anyone know why its no longer available and will it ever come back on the market. Look forward to hearing from anyone who may be able to help me.
