Thank you for your question. Disulfiram does have a minor side affect of causing erectile dysfunction. We do not recommend you discontinue using this medication until you discuss what is happening with the doctor who prescribed you Disulfiram. Disulfiram is a medication that inhibits the enzyme that metabolizes alcohol in the body. It acts as a deterrent to alcohol ingestion, for when a patient on disulfiram drinks alcohol it will result in a very unpleasant flu-like feeling, similar to a severe hangover. Please consult your doctor.
