I need a breast biopsy; I assume under a local anesthesia. Will my taking naltrexone interfere with my ability to get numb with a local?
Does naltrexone affect local anesthesia?

"Naltrexone does not block aspirin, acetaminophen, or NSAIDs, including ibuprofen and naproxen sodium. It does not block the effects of local anesthetics such as lidocaine or general (nonopioid) anesthetics."
