What causes shortness of breath and dizziness after having Antabuse?
No it does not act for cocaine
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.
I read your query and understand yoour concerns.
Antabuse no not interact with any receptor at which cocaine acts and so it does not interfere with action of cocaine. Even for alcohol it does not diminish pleasurable effect of alcohol but disrupts metabolism of alcohol which gives unpleasant side effects to the patient.
Antabuse is an inhibitor of enzyme suppressant through which (CYP450) metabolism of many drug occurs.
It is possible that antabuse raising the concentration of other molecule which you are taking for cocaine by inhibiting metabolizing enzyme. By this way it is possible that the concentration of that molecule will increase in body which will cause withdrawal symptoms of cocaine.
Having said this feeling dizzy and short of breath can be side effect of antabuse itself.
I hope this answers your question.
If you have more questions feel free to write back to me.
Thanks and regards
They do not have head to head interaction
Thanks for reverting back to me.
Neither cocaine nor Antabuse affect each other`s metabolism and do not cause any significant interaction. You may get some news from internet contrary to my statement but the above fact is proved by science.
I hope this helps you.
