lo dose naltrexone
Any one have experience using Lo Dose Naltrexone for arthritis, fibromyalga, or chronic pain ? ## I used LDN for Crohn's Disease and it was very effective in reducing abdominal pain. I used Neurontin, a synthetic analog of GABA, for nerve pain and it helped. You can buy GABA from a health food store. I hope this helps. ## Does LDN help with rheumatoid arthritis victims? ## GABA and Neurontin are not the same as far as effects. Neurontin (Gabapentin) is a Schedule IV or V prescription drug. IMO, OTC GABA is crap. ...

i have been taking naltrexone for a month now to help me quit getting drunk on white wine. My pharmacist said i shouldn`t drink any alcohol while taking this drug but would like to know if i went out on a weekend, could i drink a glass of wine or two while taking naltrexone? Would there be any severe side effects? ## Wouldn't that be defeating the purpose of why you wanted to start taking it? Not only is it risky to consume alcohol with any medication, but if you wanted to stop drinking, it really makes little sense to go right back to it. Have you consulted your doctor? Have you undergone any counseling for this issue? ## Co: Your pharmacist does not understand the way naltrexone works or what its purpose is. Naltrexone works by the principal of "pharmacological extinction"... ...

Naltrexone addiction
naltrexone was prescribed following detox from opiate addiction......I'm trying to get off the naltrexone but I start having "withdrawal".....muscle pain, nausea...when I stop taking the naltrexone.....I've been opiate free for months.....why is this happening? everything I've read says that naltrexone is not physically addictive, but I'm starting to wonder......has anyone had this problem with naltrexone? ## Your body can become dependent on anything that you take for a long period of time, because it gets used to having that substance. This means that a sudden cessation may result in some withdrawal effects, though they aren't usually as severe as the withdrawals from an actual addiction. Have you consulted your doctor for assistance? ## Can I take Naltrexo... ...

 Oxycodone + Naltrexone
Oxytrex is an investigational drug currently in clinical trials. It combines the well known opioid agonist oxycodone in the treatment of pain with an ultra-low dose of naltrexone, an opioid antagonist. Naltrexone can have markedly different pharmacokinetics at ultra-low doses which may include, the attenuation of a pre-established opioid tolerance, the prevention of tolerance from the oxycodone in the formulation, and the possible amplification of oxycodone. It is being developed by Pain Ther...

Oxycodone and Naltrexone
please explain Naltrexone can have markedly different pharmacokinetics at ultra low doses which may include the attenuation of a pre-established opioid the prevention of tolerance from the oxycodone in the formulation, and the possible amplification of oxycodone ## Think of it as wiping the slate clean. Thats what naltrexone does to the opiod receptors thereby "erasing" tolerance and making the receptors more sensitive again ## @John, I don't know if you may be looking for a second opinion on this, but I think the previous post does a good job of putting into perspective how Naltrexone works to prevent the tolerance of opioids. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, a 100mg dose of Naltrexone is said to provide a 96% blockade by the time 24 hours have passed, an... ...

i have been taking naltrexone for many monthes and quit two days ago because I had to have surgery and have been prescribed watson 853 _ will that work for pain since i have been on naltrexone. ## Hello, I've never done this before. I guess this is what is called a chatroom. I was looking around to get some information for a prescription I just started taking today. I THINK ITS SHORT NAME IS "NARCO." I got them from one of my siblings. There information brochures wasn't attached. The pill says WATSON 853. I have a herniated disc. Both of my siblings have had two back surgeries.

Naltrexone and continuing to drink
Hi, I am rx'd ntrexone for alcoholism and it's working, reducing cravings and all. I was a half a bottle of vodka type drinker. Now, when I take one shot of vodka, I get really sick and nauseous. Does this happen to anyone else? I thought naltrexone allowed you to still drink, but reduces alcohols effect on your pleasure receptors. I tried switching to beer or wine and still get sick. I guess that's a good thing but was wondering if anyone else feels this side effect when the drs and drug companies say it does not make you sick like Antabuse. Thanks. ## Hello, Meg! How are you? Naltrexone can cause nausea as a side effect and combining it with alcohol will intensity that side effect. So, it's not designed to work like Antabuse, but will affect some people in a very simil... ...

Doctors who are willing to prescribe Naltrexone
Im an alcoholic. I can't seem to get a prescription for naltrexone (I've been finding it on the internet, very expensive but worth the money, it has saved my life). My MD will not prescribe and I can't find anyone who will. Is there some way of finding someone who will prescribe that I haven't tried yet? Thanks ## Where do you live? ## I live in Cheviot Ohio. My md just refuses. The only thing I can find is the vivitrol shot, but I want the pills so I can keep doing the Sinclair method. It's worked very well for me but I can't afford to buy it without having a valid script from a doctor. :(. Any help appreciated thanks :) ...

what other drugs could my brother be taking if he is on Naltrexone?
Hi. I'm concerned about my brother. He has been on Naltrexone now (again) for a H addiction. He's been doing great but today lots of signs pointed to him decieving us again and I'm sure he was affected by something when he returned to the party we were at after he disappeared (for an hour) to get smokes. I'm sure his pupils were constricted and he was sweating a couple of hours later (it wasn't hot here by the way). His wife watches him take his naltrexone every night before bed and is sure he doesn't spit it out. What other drugs could he still be using? We were hoping naltrexone would cancel out everything :( ## Suboxone 8mg or subutex 8mg analgesic works by blocking the Nero receptors the same way. In some cases people use the subutex to get a high off it has ... ...
