... This is not enough deterrent to stop me drinking. Should I up my dose to 400mg daily
Hey, Steve, I do admire the fact that you must know you want to stop.The rash is bad enough one day just a drink too much you may not wake up. The normal dose for Antabuse is 250mg to 500mg daily Please be frank with your doctor and let him or her know that you need a dose increase they may even decide at 3 times a week on the 500mg And try to pick up a few hobbies other than then the bottle sounds to me you are on the right track.But you well find that if you are honest with the doctor they well treat you better too. Try and do your best be it going to free meetings anything to keep you mind off the alcohol.And no way am I putting you down my friend I admire the fact that you know you need an increase in dose for one but it does concern me, Steve, that the rash is coming out which can be it affecting your liver too.Please contact your doctor as soon as you can and if you don't mind repost and let me know what you have done.
