Can I Eat Food Cooked With Wine While On Antabuse
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
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
