I’ve been taking Antabuse 250 mg twice a week for a month now. If today was my last dose, Would it be safe to have a glass of wine or two in 8 days for a Christmas work function?
"The half life of Antabuse is 60-120 hours and up to 20% of a single dose may remain in the body for a week or more. Antabuse starts to affect ethanol metabolism within 1-2 hours after administration. Following a single dose of the medication, the body may react to any amount of alcohol for up to 14 days."
But why would you want to drink at all? All it takes is one and there are plenty of non-alcoholic alternatives.
Best regards, Wildcat
