It's been about 3 days since I stopped taking it. I was on 100 my for about 10 days in total. The beer I want to drink is 4.7% alcohol.its a fruity beer. Soooo... can a drink a couple and be ok? I don't want the whole 6 pack just a couple. Any feedback would be great
General rule is if a person is taking 50mg (Antabuse) a day, they need to leave AT LEAST 48 hours between the last dose and the first (alcoholic) drink. At 100mg per day, i don't know if the period in between should be longer??? It would be best to check with your doctor/prescribing physician. And it is also important to inform this person that you have discontinued use of the medication...
I did it today after 3 days off antabuse (two weeks taking this drug). Thank God I did not vomit. But I was confused, hot and had a rash on my chest, arms and legs. I think that at this point the antabuse has almost left the body but there are always some leftovers... I would wait a week.
