After a week on 10 mg. ( and so far it seems to be working well) I had 2 glasses of wine. Felt the affects very strongly and the next day woke up feeling dreadful-like I'd had a bottle plus. Anyone had this experience and can I expect it to improve as I adjust to drug? Hate to think I can't enjoy an occasional glass of wine. Thanks for any feedback.

Alcohol can intensify the side effects of the medication. While you are adjusting to the med which it can take upwards of a month to reach maximum effectiveness I would stay away from the alcohol. After this an occassional glass of wine shouldn't bother you at all.

I have a prescription for naltrexone and want to know if I should take it everyday or just when I plan on having a glass of wine.
