  • In this case, your doctor may order a higher dose (100-150 milligrams) to be taken every 2-3 days to make it easier to schedule clinic visits.
  • Naltrexone may be taken with food or antacids if stomach upset occurs.A urine test should be done to check for recent opiate drug use.
  • Your doctor may give you another medication (naloxone challenge test) to check for opiate use.

  • If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects.
  • Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.Sudden opiate withdrawal symptoms can occur within minutes after taking naltrexone.
  • Tell your doctor immediately if any of these withdrawal symptoms occur: abdominal cramps, nausea/vomiting, diarrhea, joint/bone/muscle aches, mental/mood changes (e.g., anxiety, confusion, extreme sleepiness, visual hallucinations), runny nose.Naltrexone has rarely caused serious liver disease.
  • The risk is increased when larger doses are used.
