I read this in a newspaper article and thought it was a wind-up ?
I looked up about 5 books about antabuse,and not one mentioned anything about gambling.Maybe they just found it out recently,also I didnt check the web.Type in antabuse(Disulifiram) on your search engine and it wikk definately tell you if it stops compulsive gambling.I sort of remember that antabuse helped with something but cant remember what is was.Sorry could not answser your question,and put abatabuse and ganbling and search you might find what you are looking for.Good Luck
This is used to discourage alcoholics from relapsing. It makes a person violently ill if they drink. Usually a person would take this everyday, like methadone at a clinic and/or like meds in the morning and if you drink, including cough meds or anything with alcohol in it, the sick is not worth the drink I'm sure. I believe there are some antidepressant drugs that have been known to help with this but Gamblers anon would be a good start. This is a very serious thing and should really be treated like everything else. Good Luck.
