Lyme & Reason – Lyme Disease and the Power of Innovation
Unfortunately, I had what doctors call an allergic reaction to it.
Please read about my experience and make sure you understand all risks before taking this medication: https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2019/10/14/november-2019-lyme-support-meeting-oct-meeting-canceled-due-to-reaction-to-disulfiram/
I worry particularly about single patients that do not have someone monitoring them while taking this drug. Evidently, a group of Lyme literate doctors are concerned that some patients with a genetic predisposition can have significant side effects when using Disulfiram: https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2019/10/15/disulfiram-psychosis-update/
Significant side effects hardly expresses what I went through.
A $40 drug nearly killed me.
I don’t want to stop you from considering it, but please, please, discuss what happened to me with your doctor and read the “Disulfiram psychosis update” link and share with your doctor before taking it.
My initial side effects were:
- converging eyes/vision
- stomach bloating/gas/burping
- inability to orgasm
