Pink- I'm not familiar with your medication, but from what I understand about Antabuse, you CANNOT forget you're taking it. It's not just a sickness you get from taking it, but possible death. I'm also sensitive to my face wash which contains alcohol. I've been warned off hand sanitizer as well. It also stays in my system for up to 14 days (though I've heard of some people drinking earlier and not getting sick-not something I'm risking) so I'd really have to plan to drink. I did a lot of research on the medication before taking it. Again, I have no clue how this compares to your medication.
