I took 250 mg of Antabuse at 7am this morning for the first time. Will I get sick today if I drink
Elizabeth; This is not a good idea the whole reason for the Antabuse is to help you stop the alcohol. Some people might just get some minor side effect but others get deadly sick from the combination. You also have to watch thing you might need some people are so sensitive even mouthwash that has alcohol or perfume can set them off so you make sure you look at anything you use that no alcohol is in it. But the longer your on the Antabuse and your blood level goes up from it the worst the reaction could be. Do not drink and if you were to stop the Antabuse you have to wait for 3 to 5 days before any alcohol. This can be very serious so be very careful it works differently for everyone.
