Anti-Booze Tablets
I need to know how the dosages work for these tablets and how long it stays in your system. Can you drink them during the week and stay off it for a week-end without it affecting you? What is the product name and can you buy it over the counter?

AA, it is called Antabuse®, you need a prescription and you take one tablet per day (everyday). You can’t take it on and off as you want and drinking when you are taking it may be very dangerous (a patient of mine had a heart attack whilst doing it a couple of weeks ago). Good luck.
