About Dizone Tablet 10's

Dizone Tablet 10's belongs to the class of medications called 'Antabuse' used to treat alcohol dependence or chronic alcoholism. Heavy long-term use of alcohol can cause addiction in an individual, thereby making changes in your brain. Long-term alcohol intake can severely damage your liver and cause liver cirrhosis or fatty liver syndrome.

Dizone Tablet 10's contains 'Disulfiram', which works by blocking an enzyme that breakdown alcohol in our body. When a patient drinks alcohol, it is changed into acetaldehyde, Dizone Tablet 10's blocks the enzyme that breaks down acetaldehyde. This results in a higher level of acetaldehyde in the blood, causing discomfort and physical reactions. Dizone Tablet 10's can help alcohol-addicted people who have decided to quit alcohol drinking by deterring them from drinking again. So, it acts as a supportive agent in the treatment of alcoholism.

    Habit Forming


    Diet & Lifestyle Advise

    • A patient is advised to have a diet that increases serotonin levels which makes a person feel good & involves eating foods high in carbohydrates, especially the complex carbohydrates present in starchy food items like legumes (e.g., beans, lentils and peas), root vegetables (e.g., potatoes and carrots), pasta and bread. Eating such foods in combination with protein in meals will benefit.
    • Deficiencies in B-complex vitamins such as thiamine, folate or folic acid, and B12 are common with alcoholism, and inadequate stores of other B vitamins and vitamin C frequently occur. A patient should take supplements and vitamins on consulting a doctor.
    • Malnutrition is common during alcohol consumption and is revealed slowly and gradually. The patient becomes tired and develops a weaker immune system—which means they are more susceptible to infections. These problems need to be identified and treated during the recovery process—ideally by a team of healthcare professionals.
    • The patient should change his drinking priorities and prefer drinks like apple cider, vanilla shake, mixing juice or lemonade with sparkling water etc.

    • Dizone Tablet 10's should never be given to a patient when they are in a state of alcohol intoxication or without his full knowledge.
    • After you stop taking Dizone Tablet 10's, do not drink alcohol for at least seven days as your body needs to start making the enzyme 'acetaldehyde' again. In case, drinking alcohol earlier than this may trigger an 'aldehyde reaction'.
