You should wait for at least 12 hours after consuming alcohol before you start Antabuse. You should not drink alcohol while taking Antabuse and for up to 14 days after you stop taking this medicine.
Antabuse is prescribed to recovering alcoholics to help them abstain from drinking alcohol. If someone taking this medicine drinks alcohol, it quickly causes a severe, unpleasant reaction that can defer them from drinking.
