Hi there ...

Thank you for your question .

Disulfiram ( Antabuse ) used in the treatment of chronic alcoholism , and ideally one should avoid alcohol when on this medication .

Do you want to have drink at party ?

4 to 5 drinks
Expert:  Dr. Abid replied 10 months ago.

Remember Disulfiram blocks the enzyme that metabolizes alcohol in body , so if large amount of drink is used along with Disulfiram than unwanted side effects can develop because Alcohol will not metabolized.

So not more than 1 or 2 drinks .

Hope you understand that , it can harm you if you use 4 to 5 drinks .

Regards ***** ***** luck .

Please rate my answer as good service .

Thanks .
