Naltrexone has a half life of 6 hours, however it has a metabolite 6-beta-naltrexol with a half life of 13 hours - though i am unsure if 6-beta-naltrexol is an antagonist, i am pretty sure it is. Hey guys, Wondering if anyone mathematically-minded can help here.
Glial cell activation is one important reason why, over time, opiates are less effective for managing fibromyalgia pain, because while the opiate pain meds are blocking some pain signals, they are at the same time increasing the pain volume. Naltrexone is also used to treat alcoholism by reducing your urge to drink alcohol.
The relevance of a particular drug interaction to a specific patient is difficult to determine using this tool alone given the large number of variables that may apply. We cannot guarantee results and occasional interruptions in updating may occur. Did i waste it??
What can I do to prevent this in the future?

No, create an account now. The original or primary use for Naltrexone at regular strength is for addiction problems, and recently WebMD does not provide medical advice, diagnosis or treatment.
Reason I ask is that I'd like to be able to enjoy a few drinks this Thursday with some mates for my birthday. My dr and 3 pharmacists all thought these meds were ok to take together in a low dose, even tho all the med info gives warnings galore. Potential for serious interaction; regular monitoring by your doctor required or alternate medication may be needed.
I know the low dose treatment has been proven to help people, just be careful to fully detox before you take your first dose. This is dosage dependent, as too much of the opiate blocker will block the pain-relieving effects of the opiate and even induce withdrawal symptoms.
Am J Psychiatry Feb; 2: You may experience withdrawal symptoms from your opioid analgesic while taking naltrexone. When these two medicines are taken together, naltrexone may decrease the effects of the opioid analgesic.
My last blog post was about the use of low doses of naltrexone, an opiate blocker, to turn down the volume on fibromyalgia pain. We found 16 discussions.
