Hi, i'm going to copy and paste an answer i posted a while ago on the same subject...
"Hi, there is some conflicting data on this subject, the tablet is made up of 2 components, the
plasma half-life for Me-DTC is about ten hours, but the enzyme inhibiting effect of
ALDH lasts considerably longer. The effect can thus persist for 7 to 14 days after
discontinuation. However i have been told that you can have a drink 72 hours after your last dose and have done this myself with no repercussions?? To be safe i would follow the 7 to 14 day guidelines though! If you are going to have a reaction it kicks in very fast, within 5 to 10 minutes. Please just be very careful... "
