No effect as there is with alcohol when one is on antabuse. The antabuse tends to block cocaine receptors in the brain so that you don't get the feel-good effect from the cocaine. When it comes to alcohol, the antabuse blocks one of the liver enzymes that metabolizes alcohol and turns alcohol into formaldeyde in the blood stream--that causes the violent reaction of turning beet red, nausea, vomiting, etc. But all that would happen if one were taking anabuse and then took cocaine would be a lack of the cocaine high

ok. But yesterday I felt dizzy and very sick after taking cocaine. Does naltrexone block cocaine feel good? I read that i blocks opiates but don't know about cocaine.

Yes, naltrexone can block the cocaine feel-good effect

Hi again. I'd like to ask you a question here--you've asked several questions on this subject up to now--

Can I ask what exactly is going on with you and cocaine and antabuse and naltrexone?
