i took revia for 6 months
which is basically the same drug as nal.
i was hoping that it would help me with cravings
it did not
the drug was too much for my liver so i had to quit
also my hair fell out in chunks
i was on that search for the magic pill
fianlly i started going to meetings, and working the 12 steps
i found that medicine was not a sufficient means of recovering from drugs
good luck with it, i hope you do not loose all your hair, like i did
try to go to website webmd.com thats where i always go when i get a new med or a new med problems pops up for me. it gives very good info
i just looked it up and from what i read, it looks like its in the same class as suboxone, or methadone, now dont go by what im just saying go to webmd and look for your self. but thats what i got from it
naltrexone is very useful in helping alcoholics and cocaine addicts. depending on the form of naltrexone you ahve like a shot given once a once or a pill taken daily, it will block you from getting high completely. i do know it is somewhat costly so watch for that, but i have seen many people with major alcohol and cocaine addictions stop and stay clean with the aid of naltrexone and counseling, along with meetings. i know the mental cravings for cocaine can be brutal but youve already been through the ahrdest part and i really think if yous tick witha treatment plan and have realistic goals then you can stay celan and sober for good, best of luck and if you have any other questions let me know-christos
I took Naltrexone. It can be very helpful and beneficial. It helped me get clean the first time I actually gave it a shot. I used the buprenophine shots then started the oral naltrexone pills.
If I can be of any help, please let me know.
narcan/naloxone.reverses the high/problems related to drug abuse...and it is on every 'code" cart in the hospital...if a doctor or nurse accidently oversedates a patient with stong nacotics..of i they come in to the ER with respisatory depression..it is given iv...a code drug as it is given to people in life threatening situations in house to reverse the effects of narcotics and restore respirations
oh...headache..and if u r addicted to a narcotic..instant withdrawals would occur as it snatches all the opiods off the receptors...in a life or death situation, such as respiratory depresion and loss of heart rate...it is given IV..reaches the brain centers pronto..no one is too extremely worried about the instant wds from a DOC when a person is in respiratory or cardiac depression
oh...the pure drug itself does not contain a narcotic
