In brief: No

One other medicine, Flagyl (metronidazole), used for vaginal infections and other parasitic infections, has antabuse-like actions, so if people drink on it, they get nauseated.
Some people of asian background naturally do not make enough of an enzyme that metabolizes alcohol (which is blocked by antabuse) so they get some of the same symptoms- - flushing, nausea, headache, dizziness.
