Naltrexone Hydrochloride is a prescription medication used to help individuals manage opioid addiction and alcohol dependence. Naltrexone works by blocking the effects of opioids, diminishing cravings and preventing relapse. Naltrexone is not an opioid itself; rather, it blocks the effects of opioids that you may encounter through environmental triggers or substance use. Naltrexone is believed to be a safe treatment for opioid addiction and alcohol dependence, with minimal side effects when taken as prescribed.
Naltrexone Hydrochloride is administered orally, usually once a day depending on doctor’s instructions. It can be taken with or without food and should be swallowed whole with a full glass of water. Naltrexone is most effective when taken regularly as part of an overall treatment plan that includes counseling and other support services such as 12-step programs or group therapy sessions. Patients should inform their doctor if they become pregnant while taking Naltrexone so they can discuss potential risks and alternative treatments available to them.
Naltrexone Hydrochloride has proven effective in helping individuals overcome opiate addiction, especially when combined with other forms of treatment such as counseling and support groups. Naltrexone reduces cravings for opioids by blocking their activity in the brain, thus reducing the risk of relapse after successful detoxification from opiates such as heroin or prescription painkillers like oxycodone or hydrocodone. Naltrexone has also been found to be beneficial in reducing drinking frequency among those who suffer from alcohol dependence, allowing them to moderate or abstain from drinking altogether if desired.
In addition to its therapeutic benefits, Naltrexone Hydrochloride is safe for long term use due to its low toxicity profile compared to other medications used in addiction treatment settings such as methadone or buprenorphine/naloxone combination therapies (Subutex/Suboxone). Naltrexone does not cause physical dependence upon stopping its use so it does not produce any withdrawal symptoms like those associated with prolonged opioid use or cessation of opioid agonist drugs like methadone/buprenorphine maintenance therapies.
