Naltrexone and kratom

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...

Naltrexone stretching and yawning

I just started Naltrexone. The dosage is 1/2 of a 50 mg tablet 2x per day. I took my second dose early this morning. I feel really weird. Light-headed, groggy and a little dizzy. I also keep having urges to stretch and yawn like when I first wake up from a deep sleep. I am taking this for alcohol and appetite, It did greatly diminish my desire for alcohol and food after my first dose yesterday so I really want to continue. Will this get better? I can hardly function this morning. I am wondering if a much lower dose would be effective for me. ## Most side effects will go away, once your body gets used to the medication, but that may take 4 to 6 weeks. If they persist beyond that, then you should consult your doctor, you should also do so, if your symptoms become severe. The FDA lists oth...

Naltrexone alcohol side effect

So I've been taking naltrexone for the past month or two to reduce alcohol cravings. Last night I decided to drink, I had two beers and was so nauseous from it the whole time drinking, I ended up throwing up. Which is very unlike me. ## Well, it can cause nausea as a side effect, as listed by the FDA and drinking alcohol while taking any medication can worsen the side effects. You may also experience dizziness, drowsiness and dry mouth. It's best to refrain from drinking alcohol, when taking any prescription medication. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I've been taking Naltrexone for about a year now. It was prescribed for opiates, but it really makes me not want to drink too. The main reasons being I have terrible heartburn most times I drink. I'm not sure if ...

Naltrexone for pain pill addiction

Hi... my husband has been addicted to pain pills off and on for the past 5 years, with things getting really out of hand the past year. Almost 2 weeks ago he went to detox and rehab. He AMA'ed out of rehab 3 days ago because he said he couldn't take it. He is willing try something to help him control his cravings. I've done some reading on Naltrexone and was wondering how well it works and if anyone knows of a doctor in the Houston area that prescribes it? Right now he needs all the help that he can get. Thank you! =) ## Hi, I was hooked on pills and opiates for 5 years. Heavy user. Tried to quit many times. Plus two state run detox. Failed them all. I know everyone gets really sick. But I get extra sick. Two words. Coleman Institute. Saves my life. Detox was a cake walk. Th...

Psychological addiction to alcohol

After a serious alcohol induced illness I have never touched it again, 3 years completely dry. I have no physical craving but still seek in my life the 'feel good' that came from booze. I seek that buzz in other unharmful things or activities but it never seems to reach that 10 out 10 feeling that booze gave me. Consequently I believe I'm still addicted to the effect of alcohol. Do others have this problem, or understand mine? Does anyone know others in the same position who have used naltrexone for this situation? My life is trouble and generally stress free and I'm very fortunate so it's not life doing this. I'd really like to find a doctor or psychologist that has worked with this situation using naltrexone to treat it. Would really appreciate any information ...

Pain relief with Naltrexone

I was prescribed Contrave for weight loss. I also have a injury to my right upper arm and shoulder that has made me unable to move my my arm more than 6 inches forward, backwards and out to the side without causing horrible pain. My doctor prescribed Tramadol and occasionally Vicodin for pain relief. Fast forward 5 yrs. Opiod crisis. Doctor stops my prescription. Go thru withdraw and Pain is none stop. Enter Contrave...with it's LDN (low dose naltrexone & bupropion) Within a week the pain is subsiding. On week 4 it's gone! No more pain..I can move my arm as if it had never been injured. I read about LDN (opiod antagonist used to treat opiod addicts by stopping the effects of opiods...and yet it also seems to relieve some kinds of pain like migraines and fibromyalgia). I am w...

Naltrexone implant and still drinking

Hi. I have had the naltrexone implant for approx 2 months now. When I got it I cried with relief when driving home because I thought it would be my saviour after everything I heard and read. I have been a black out drinker for over 10 years now. Have done detoxes, one rehab, two years of AA and nothing helped. Continued to have the never ending torture of thinking about the damn drink. But I'm devastated that I'm still drinking most nights on this thing. I know it's psychological, it's definitely not physical cravings. I am forcing large quantities of discusting tasteting cheap vodka down my through because I just can't handle being sober. Always so scared to be sober. I don't enjoy drink anymore and go straight to black out drunk yet I can't stop. Getting ve...
