I've been on this therapy before and I know I sound like a jerk, but something came up and I want tomorrow to be my last day of drinking instead of yesterday. Will one 125 mg tablet have an effect on me? I've been on this before and got terrible ill when I tried to drink on Antabuse, but that was after I had been taking it for weeks. Any experience here?
Hello 773niki. Its cutting it close. You've been taking it daily and the drug is in your system. I know the dose is not the highest. I'd not gamble it. Why put yourself in possible harms way? Years ago I was on Antabuse and know how violently ill I became when taking several drinks after not having taken the drug for several days. Regards and be well, pledge
Antabuse is very hard on your liver... one pill of 125 should be out of your system in 10 hours, if your gonna drink go slow..the antabuse reaction takes 20 min to hit, and you will know how bad of a reaction your having by how red your face gets and how fast your heart rate goes... if you feel your pulse pumping quicker then usual you better stop and just drink water for the rest of the day... good luck and be safe!
