Why do Antabuse pills 250mg have a funny odor?

One thought on “Antabuse

  1. Hello,

    From eMedicine's toxicity report on Disulfiram (Antabuse), the cause

    for the odor is the sulfur compounds in the medicine itself. In fact

    the odor is one of the signs of an Antabuse overdose. Here is the line

    in the toxicity report:

    "Rotten-egg odor on breath (sulfide metabolites), garliclike or

    metallic aftertaste in mouth"

    Sulfur compounds are actually responsible for another smelly thing

    (see below).
