took it for first time but decided im going to try something else. its been 2 days, when is it safe to drink alcohol?
What else are you going to try since you're worried about when you can drink?
I know this is a late response, but i would recommend waiting AT LEAST 48 hours between your last dose and taking a drink. And even then, be cautious! Really the longer the better/safer...
Let the doctor know you are not ready to quit. If you are in rehab tell the counselor. You don't appear to be ready to stop.
First time user of Antabuse. Took 250 on a Thursday drank the following Wednesday. No issues.
