He is healthy and good no liver problems and no allergies not on any other medications but he drinks too much of alcohol. when he become intoxicated he doesn't know what he is doing and often be very abusive and violent to his partner and kids.
What you are really asking, is it medically safe to do this? Only a doctor could answer this.
I don't think you can rely upon medical advice over the internet. Talk with a doctor in person.
What you should be asking yourself is SHOULD you do it? Depending upon what part of the world you live in, giving someone a drug without their knowledge and consent is a crime.
Another question you might consider is why does this person drink? What are the circumstances of his life? Perhaps you could help more by improving his conditions in life rather than drugging him.
You could but it will precipitate alcohol withdrawal which can be dangerous depending how much he drinks (this might be a good thing by the sounds of it). He will be aware something is badly wrong as he will not become intoxicated; after this he will start to feel desperate making him even potentially more dangerous.
Having been an alcoholic for a large portion of my adult life (now sober 3.5 years) I can guarantee he does know what he is doing and what he has done. It might be a foggy memory, but, deep down where it really counts, he is aware of what he has done repeatedly feels justified using alcohol as an excuse.
Over the last 10 years I have met a staggering number of really nice women who accept that violence and verbal abuse is a normal part of relationships. I think that to be unacceptable.
Call the police next time; refuse to be a victim. I know it is not easy but I count among my friends a number of women who have managed to escape (although one has just had to move 500 miles away as her ex found her after 10 years).
