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.

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
