Possible Interaction: Ethanol and Disulfiram



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

The most commonly prescribed agents are the aversive drugs (e.g., disulfiram , calcium carbimide), which when ingested prior to alcohol produce an unpleasant physiologic reaction, which is supposed to deter further drinking.
Addictive behaviors  •  1981  |  View Paper
The therapeutic rationale for using implanted disulfiram is possible inhibition of the liver enzyme acetaldehyde dehydrogenase, producing an acetaldehyde-mediated aversive reaction after intake of ethanol.

Finally, in view of the low (approximately 0.5) probability with which a DER follows ingestion of alcohol by a disulfiram implant patient, it is suggested that the approach to patient management should be changed to maximize the effectiveness of the disulfiram implant procedure.

In contrast to anti-craving drugs, disulfiram does not modulate neurobiological mechanisms of addiction, but rather works by producing an aversive reaction when combined with alcohol.
Pharmacopsychiatry  •  2016  |  View Paper
In vitro permeability was measured unidirectionally in Caco-2 and MDCKII cell models in the presence of acetaldehyde, ethanol, or disulfiram , an aldehyde dehydrogenase inhibitor, which causes acetaldehyde formation when coadministered with ethanol in vivo.
Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics  •  2010  |  View Paper
Disulfiram was first used clinically in an attempt to deter people from ethanol consumption (Hald and Jacobsen, 1948).
Advances in experimental medicine and biology  •  1997  |  View Paper
Disulfiram , an acetaldehyde dehydrogenase inhibitor, enhanced the inhibitory effect of ethanol in vivo.
Carcinogenesis  •  1988  |  View Paper
Following co-administration of ethanol and an inhibitor of acetaldehyde metabolism, such as disulfiram or calcium carbamide, acetaldehyde blood concentrations may increase 5-10 fold over normal level (reviewed in [1]).
Report on carcinogens : carcinogen profiles  •  1985  |  View Paper
Pretreatment with disulfiram potentiated the effect of ethanol.
Pharmacology Biochemistry and Behavior  •  1980  |  View Paper
The symptoms are similar to those obtained when ethanol is taken with disulphiram (antabuse) which acts by inhibiting acetaldehyde metabolism.
