Antabuse is cheap and has two side effects men hate...onion breath and erectile dysfunction.I have not see it have a good success rate.I've seen better results with Campral combined with a support group and a lifestyle change which is devoid of alcohol and its influences.Some here have noted success with Naltrexone which was originally used with opiate addicts.Different meds work differently on different ppl!
hello. i've been on both antabuse and campral (have been on campral now for almost 2 years) and like ibizan said, the best results come from a combination of things. i was told if i kept going near the barber shop, i would end up getting a haircut so i stay away from people, places and things that i associated with my drinking, and i try to help others find their own path to a different way of life. the antabuse will do nothing for cravings aside from providing some psychological aversion to alcohol, as it will make you violently ill if you drink on it (i've tried and trust me it sux big time). the campral is specifically addressed for use in prevention of cravings, and from my experience has generated no negative side effects. best wishes, gm
