I've been on 50 mg for one week now and notice a little bit of a difference in my appetite. No weight loss though. I still have an appetite, but this helps me curb the binging a little. Was hoping someone could share some comments here,,,
I was recently prescribed a low dose of Naltrexone (25 mg) in the morning to help with weight loss. This is not combined with Welbutrin. I've been taking this for about a week and have noticed a huge difference in the amount of food I'm eating, as well as with sugar cravings. I get very hungry, as usual, but fairly soon after I begin eating, about half way through a meal maybe, I start to feel very full, to the point that I stop eating. My stomach feels so full that I just can't continue. So far I've lost 5 lbs. in about 7 days. I have not given up anything at all, food wise. Additionally, I have no side effects but I am thirsty and I am craving grapes. I just don't eat very many of them! I have a bit of a headache and I don't know if that's from naltrexone. I really hope this continues. It's like a miracle. Everyone's brain reacts differently to drugs. This one seems to really be working for me.
