I don't have experience, yet am interested myself. I asked my doctor if he would prescribe it, but he said "No! That is more for people that are addicted, which is not you"... much to my disappointment he doesn't know about Naltrexone. I'll have to drag my laptop in with me on my next appointment to show him an article about it. My doc isn't that old, you would think he would know about this. But he is still thinking old-school about it.
I hope you find a doc that will prescribe it for you, good luck,

Wow, sounds like it would be worth a try, but this information has been available for 3 years. Old news as far as research goes. Wonder if Stanford has followed up on this? I guess I could go to the Stanford site and look, if I can find it. Medline is another possibility.
I'll let you know what I find as to continuing research.

I started at the top dose of 4.5mg due to the fact the stated side-effects were already symptoms I was dealing with.
I had asked my Dr. for a 3/mo supply with 1 refill, as a 6 mo. period is recommended to appreciate results.
I noticed after one week that I do not crawl out of bed in the morning feeling like I was beat with a bat all night. I am keeping track of new things like: increased stamina. I have been walking distances and just yesterday did some actual jogging in between walking.
I am using L-glutamine after exercise and it does reduce any pain from exertion. I have been more active in recent weeks than in past 16 yrs and not having to spend two days or more to recover.
I have an improved attitude towards others and have gotten that feedback.
This loss of job, activity and socialization inflicted by our limitations causes many of us to be other than ourselves. I was an intense, bitter, pain in the butt.
Now my children and husband have the old me back.

It sounds like it might offer some relief. I saw the info on www.lowdosenaltrexone.org.
