 Naltrexone
Naltrexone reverses the effects of opioids and is used primarily in the management of alcohol dependence and opioid dependence.[1] It is marketed as its hydrochloride salt, naltrexone hydrochloride, under the trade names Revia and Depade. A once-monthly extended-release injectable formulation is marketed under the trade name Vivitrol. The closely related medication methylnaltrexone is used to treat opioid-induced constipation. Nalmefene is a very similar drug that is used for the same purpose...

i was curious if this medication helps with pain from opiate withdrawal ## Una-contrary! It will make withdrawals much worse. You may use naltrexone at least 7 days after you stop using opiates. ## I've been taking oxycodone for years now. I took the vivitrol shot yesterday without detoxing from pills. I went into a very violent withdrawal for about 12 hours. no sleep at all. I am still in withdrawal because of getting off pills. But if i took a pill, would it help with my bad withdrawals or will naltrexone throw me into a worse intense withdrawal? ...

lo dose naltrexone
3 Replies RSS
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. ...

naltrexone implant
3 Replies RSS
Hi, I just had the 12 month implant inserted; for opiates. Can you please tell me if I drink will it interfere with making it less effective, especially in the first month when the capsule is growing over it? I have a wedding today. Could you please let me know? I don't have a drinking problem. I'm a 33 yr old woman. Thank you ## More than likely, you should not even feel like drinking...I have been on it for about a month and just the thought of having a drink makes me sick. This drug is a life saver!! ## Hello, Lois! How are you? Tom is correct, you will most likely need to stay away from alcohol, this medication is also used to treat alcoholism. Trying to drink while having the implant could result in severe nausea, dizziness and stomach pain, as listed by the FDA. Is there a... ...

naltrexone/alcohol
13 Replies RSS
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 question
1 Reply RSS
My adult son took 1/4 of a 50MG naltrexone last night and is going through precipitated withdrawals now. He asked me to post the following question. What would happen if he took the another 1/4 later in the day? He is bound and determined to making his doctor's appointment tomorrow afternoon for a vivitrol shot. ## Hello, BuckOwen! How is your son doing? He'll likely keep experiencing severe withdrawals. However, the thing you need to be aware of is that precipitated withdrawals can be very dangerous, possibly life threatening. He could even suffer seizures from them. Other typical PW symptoms, as listed by the FDA, may also include fever, chills, vomiting, diarrhea and insomnia. What did his doctor tell him to do, before starting the shot? ...

starting naltrexone
1 Reply RSS
My doctor gave me a U/A and it came back neg. I had taken oxycodone the day before so this surprised me. I am seeing that it's very serious to wait at least 7 days to start the medicine. But not seeing what would happen if you don't wait. ## Taking it too soon could you go into dangerous precipitated withdrawals. As listed by the FDA, they could include nausea, chills, fever, diarrhea, headache and seizures. Naltrexone clings to the opiate receptors in your brain and it clings stronger than opiates do, so if taken too soon, it will bump any opiates you've taken out of the way and cause precipitated withdrawals. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Naltrexone addiction
5 Replies RSS
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... ...

Naltrexone and kratom
4 Replies RSS
I've been taking approximately 6g of kratom every 4 to 6 hours for about 2 years now. I want to use a weight loss medication which contains naltrexone but wonder if it will cause withdrawal sickness because of my kratom use? ## Hi, I am in the same boat as you. Have not been using Kratom that long (about 6 months) but want to start Contrave for weight loss. I am also hoping the naltrexone will help me not use the Kratom anymore as I have been trying (unsuccessfully) to quit for a few weeks now. I think it will help with that but my concern now is that I will go into extreme withdrawals when I take the first dose. Did you end up taking yours? ## Personally, I think it would be best to consult a doctor for the purpose of setting up a tapering schedule with kratom in order to lessen an... ...

 Bupropion + Naltrexone
Bupropion/naltrexone is a combination drug treatment for obesity.[1][2] It combines bupropion and naltrexone. Both drugs have individually shown some evidence of effectiveness in weight loss, and the combination is expected to have a synergistic effect.[3] In September 2014, a sustained release formulation of the drug was approved for marketing in the United States under the brand name Contrave.[1] The combination was subsequently approved in the European Union in the spring of 2015, where it...
 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...

Drinking on Naltrexone
2 Replies RSS
I have been taking naltrexone for about 3 weeks now 50 mg/day to help control my overindulgence in the drink. Its not really working. I drink pretty steady and when I get out of work crave a cold one (or 12) pretty strong. The naltrexone kind of made me not want to drink as much, but not enough to make me actually not drink. Im not trying to stop drinking. I just sometimes over do it and make a fool of myself, upset/disappoint loved ones, hurt myself etc, etc. I feel this runs in tandem with my social anxiety, where I try to use alcohol to beat the anxiety, which never works, but I dont seem to be able to learn that lesson. Once I have a few, the buzz kicks in which inturn makes me want more. Did I mention I really, really like being drunk. I know that sounds immature, but its true. Im ... ...

Naltrexone side effects
1 Reply RSS
Recently at my request my doctor gave me naltrexone to stop alcahol cravings although he admitted he didn't know much about it. I am pretty much an every night drinker, self medication, 4-5 strong drinks per night to ease anxiety. What scares me is the side effects I have been hearing about on different forums about naltrexone. I had a liver panel in late September which came out fine but the doctor told me to be very cautious. I can't afford to miss work and be down and out for any length of time. He prescribed me 25mg per day which I am starting next week after a 3 day drying out period. Any suggestions or opinions would be helpful. ## Hello, Mike! How are you? Kudos to you for realizing that you need to stop the heavy drinking and get help. That takes a lot of guts. Such heav... ...

naltrexone, wine, control
Post a Reply
I've been on Naltrexone for four days now. The first three days, I had either none or just a few sips of wine and had no desire to have anymore. It was pretty amazing, especially because for the past year or so, I've been drinking entire bottles. (Average one bottle every other day.) This afternoon, though, I started thinking about having a drink around 5. I was so disappointed--and worried, too. I've had two glasses already--less than before Naltrexone but much more than the past few days. Am I doing something wrong? ...

Naltrexone, L-Dopa and 5-HTP
2 Replies RSS
I was recently prescribed 50mg Revia. I'm currently in the 25mg period with 4 days to go until I begin the full dosage. Before this, I was taking 125mg L-dopa/velvet bean extract (800mg) plus 400mg 5-HTP on a daily basis for my depression. It does WONDERS for my depression but now I have to take this opioid antagonist and I'm wondering if there will be a drug interaction even though I'm taking dopamine. The first night, I took everything together and experienced dizziness, tiredness, insomnia, confusion, racing-thoughts, muscle spasms and increased thirst. I stopped taking the supplements and just take the Revia at night and haven't experienced anything but increased thirst and awesome sleep. I don't know too much about neurotoxicity but I know enough to know it'... ...
