As a daily binge drinker (but functional alcoholic), I mostly have my first drink before lunch, continue past lunch, stop for a while, then re-start before dinner. Some something like;
10:00-12:00 - 2-6 units
12:00-15:00 - 4-10 units
18:00-22:00 - 4-15 units

Would it make better sense to take 25mg Nal at 09:00, and then another 25mg at 17:00 using the above example?

Doc Sinclair found that the optimal dose was 50mg, but you will want to redose in the 9th hour with another 50mg if you'll be drinking beyond the 12th hour after your first dose. So a redose at 1700, then waiting an hour before continuing would do the trick to maintain coverage. You will likely be narrowing your drinking window relatively soon, so if start leaving out the lunchtime drink or cut off at 2100 hours, you'll only need the one pill.

How are you doing on the side effects so far?
