4 to 5 drinks
Doctor: Dr. Abid, Doctor replied 2 years 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 .

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
