I'm due to take a dvla medical soon. I'm due to have my licence back on 6th Dec how soon before that do they do the medical? How long should you refrain from drinking? I'm taking Milk Thistle, does this help?

Milk Thistle certainly helps and moderate drinkers usually abstain from alcohol for 1-2 weeks but if you're a heavy drinker, you might want to go without a drink for a longer period.

Thank you, this whole experience has been quite a daunting one!!,
