Can I eat food cooked with wine while on antabuse (disulfiram)?

Can I eat food cooked with wine while on antabuse (disulfiram)?

Antabuse (disulfiram) and wine: It should be okay to cook with a little wine while on antabuse (disulfiram). Most of the alcohol evaporates during cooking. If you take 250 mgs per day, or less, a very small amount of alcohol should not cause an Antabuse (disulfiram) reaction. Some take 500 mgs per day, and for those people, i would probably avoid any and all alcohol, even a small amount used for cooking. Good luck. ...Read more

How soon after drinking alcohol can I take antabuse (disulfiram)? I am concerned about eating in restaurants and getting alcohol in food. What about hair dye?

At least 24 hours: Wait at least 24 hours after drinking, to take any antabuse (disulfiram). If alcohol is used in cooking, it is generally burned off in the process -- no longer available as free alcohol to cause a reaction. Not so with liquor-laden desserts like creme de menthe over ice cream, etc. Ask for ingredients when ordering. Do not drink hair dye under any circumstances! used on your head, shouldn't be a problem. ...Read more

Can you use antabuse (disulfiram) as a prn, only on days you are at a party?

Why?: I have had patients tell me that if the holidays were coming or some big event, they would pop some antabuse (disulfiram). And immediately they would think, "if i take this tonight i'll be able drink in x number of days." if you need Antabuse (disulfiram) to keep from drinking, imho, you have a drinking problem and probably should not be drinking at all. Discuss this with your doctor or counselor. ...Read more

Can you die from drinking on antabuse (disulfiram)?

Doubt it: It is unlikely. If you are of poor health, the stress may be severe enough; however, in healthy patients, it does not happen. I had one patient do 3-4 shots before they started having a reaction, they had the expected reaction of flushing and nausea which lasted 6 hours. Many of my patients can drink up to half drink before a reaction starts. That is why it should be used with other measures. ...Read more
