Been prescribed this from the doctors recommendation and liver damage I may be able to reverse. Has anyone tried this, anything I should know? I'm going cold turkey so the first few days are going to suck.

You will get the shakes and you will be sweating no matter the temperature. You will get cravings. Beating those is the hardest.

I thought you were supposed to keep drinking whilst taking naltrexone, the same way you keep smoking whilst taking champix/chantix. It breaks the reward thing from alcohol or whatever. I'm interested. Don't think it helps with WD though? I'm interested in how naltrexone works in practice, might be something to ask the doc for

I took it for the first two days and drank, I got a buzz but no euphoria. Definitely drinking less though. I'm on day 4 and got horrible WD tonight so I'm having maybe 5-6 drinks and tapering. It helps in the short-term as in I wake up and don't want to drink but by the night I'm getting some WD and need a few shots.

I'll call the doctor in a few days as I did a liver test and need the results. My doctor said he wants me drinking a little and sticking to that, rather than a fifth/26 a night. He mentioned my drinking is like a yo-yo, I'll stop for a few days, then do a few days drinking a fifth a day, and it would be better if I steadily drank in moderation.

I stopped taking naltrexone but have a 90 day supply. I'm not a big fan as I lose interest in absolutely everything. I might take it sporadically, if I get to a point where I need to drink every day, but I'll ask the doc. Sorry for the long post

Thanks for posting this man. I've been considering seeing a doctor for obvious signs of alcoholic hepatitis that come and go but haven't gone down the Naltrexone route yet. I kick myself for falling off the cold turkey approach every week or so but you give me hope for still being alive drinking as much as you do and still being alive. Stay alive dude

Appreciate it. Just the words stay alive dude helped me last night. I'm still youngish (30 y/o) so I'm pretty confident my liver isn't done. Been drinking a lot of carbonated water today and pretty sure I'll be able to go tonight without any drinks. No WD as of tonight, midnight, so I'll go to bed in an hour.

I can keep you guys posted if you want but my experience with naltrexone was okay, it was just an extra boost I needed to stop the cravings. I have a 90 day supply but only used 2, I think I'll use it only when I go overboard.

This is only slightly related, I had a friend of a friend once get accepted into a methadone/suboxone clinic for his drinking

They gave him as much suboxone as he wanted as long as he didn't drink (subs r buprenorphine and Naloxone which is similar to naltrexone)

Long story short, he didn't really wanna quit drinking so he was only in the clinic program for a month or 2 before he got the boot for drinking all day every day . . . .

I just want u guys to know the option is out there if ur serious about getting help.

If you're seriously drinking, don't go cold turkey. You could potentially have a seizure and die. Naltrexone blocks the "feel-good" receptors in the brain after taken an hour before you drink. It's purpose is to make it so you gradually lower your dosage due to not wanting to drink anymore. The juice won't be worth the squeeze.
