It's like Antabuse and alcohol.  It only helps those who really want to stop
drinking -- forcing people to take Antabuse is counter-productive.  I even
know of people who LIKE the combination of Antabuse and alcohol.

Note also that Antabuse is a liver toxin as well.

I wonder what kind of side-effects and toxicities AME-359 might have?
