How quickly can you get methanol poisoning?

The question is: How quickly can you get methanol poisoning?

Methanol poisoning can happen quickly, and symptoms can be noticed within 1 to 72 hours after exposure. Unfortunately, these symptoms are frequently misinterpreted as other typical illnesses, and the sufferer isn’t diagnosed until it is too late.

The DSM-5 says that over 75% of poisonings caused by methanol result from people drinking methyl alcohol instead of ethyl alcohol (drinking liquor).

It is vital to know that no amount of alcohol consumption is considered safe when a person suffers from an already-existing liver disorder or is mixed with other substances like anti-depressants, sleeping pills, or tranquilizers.
