Information About Naltrexone
About Naltrexone
Medication That Works

Naltrexone is a medication approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in MAT. It comes as either an oral pill or shot, with 50mg doses being taken once per day on average - though some patients may need more than one dose throughout their treatment regimen depending on what works best for them personally; it can also be injected if injectable forms are prescribed at 380 mgs total strength every month through Vivitrol injections given intramuscularly 1 time only not twice per week/fortnight like other medications currently available today that deals with addiction therapies but don't have these side effects often found after stopping cold turkey.

How Does Naltrexone Work?

Naltrexone blocks the euphoric and sedative effects of drugs such as heroin, morphine, or codeine. It works differently in your body than buprenorphine and methadone which activate opioid receptors that suppress cravings for these substances too much if used repeatedly over time by itself without any other anti-addiction medication to work with it because naloxones binding affinity is just not strong enough to compete against opioids at their own game but still will help prevent getting high when someone relapse after quitting cold turkey from alcohol/opioids etc
