@Janet17, I think my answer is correct, I also found another source that proves my answer, it says here that: Intolerance: When drugs combine in the body to produce extremely uncomfortable reactions.


Kindly please check. Thank you.

I'm sorry emdjay23, but your answer is not precise enough in a medical sense. Intolerance can happen with any combination of drugs. But drugs like Antabuse and Naltrexone, prescribed deliberately to make people feel ill if they drink alcohol, are classed pharmaceutically as "alcohol antagonists".

I'm sorry but I am a little bit confused, it says that Drug antagonism is an interaction between two or more drugs that have opposite effects on the body.

That's true. Some antagonists work to neutralize a toxin, as with an antidote being given for an ingested poison. But other antagonists work to block receptors so that the drug is not taken up into the body. If the drug (say, alcohol) is not taken up, it circulates around the bloodstream - never being metabolised or broken down - causing horrible side effects. In the question above, the second kind of effect is the one being targeted.
