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?

Have any of you heard of or tried suboxone? It is a life saver! Its mainly used to treat drug addicts, more specifically , all of the million opiate lovers in the world. I have been on it for 5 years. before i got on the suboxone i was almost in my grave and didnt see how close i was to the coffin being closed. If i had time released oxys they were 80 mgs and in one day i couldnt imagine taking less than 7. If it was immed release oxycodones i usually had 20 mgs and s***, id easily eat 30 in a day. And vicodin and darvocet or tylenol 3s? S*** i was ' allergic" to those meds. Only because they didnt do s*** for my high anymore, i was waaaay past that.

Verwon: I've had an English muffin everyday for 6 months. If I don't have one tomorrow do you think I will experience withdrawal?

Re: tattoowilmington (# 3)

Suboxone is replacing one opiate with another. I hope you can get off of it.
