Hello @thalapathyramprabhu and welcome to Mayo Connect.
I see that the medicine you were taking, disulfiram, is used to treat alcoholism and that you took this med for a little less than 3 years. Is that correct? I found some information on the website of WebMD.com which describes the med's use and possible side effects. Here is the link, just click on the link and can you read more about it.
From this link, it appears that the usual dosage is 500 mg per day. I would like to invite others who have posted in the Addiction/Recovery discussions to ask if any of them have used this medicine for alcoholism, @jim1208 @luckonetj @johnwhitfield @trellg132 @stsopoci.
@thalapathyramprabhu Are the side effects listed in this article similar to the ones that you are still experiencing?
Yes I do have the same effect I hope you can give me the best to recover

As you probably know, @thalapathyramprabhu, Mayo Connect is a patient-to-patient online support group. We are not medical professionals. I do suggest that you talk with your doctor about the side effects that remain after stopping this medicine.
Can you talk to the doctor who originally prescribed this or another doctor?
Thank u for your reply I am not able to find correct doctor the person who sujjested also not able to give solution
@thalapathyramprabhu I am sorry that you cannot find help. Do you live in the U.S.?
No I am from India
But i am searching for solution all over 😊 but i am happy that you r trying to help
@thalapathyramprabhu Are their any internists nearby that you can talk to? Also, often pharmacists are very knowledgeable about medications and their side effects. Perhaps you can talk to a pharmacist?
