Abstract

Disulfiram is used for the treatment of alcohol dependence. Betel chewing is a practice seen in Sri Lanka. This article reports a case series describing an aversive reaction between disulfiram and betel, in persons who were abstinent from alcohol. This association has not been reported previously in the literature.
