i am currently taking 45 mg of mscontin for chronic pain. How would naltrexone effect that and my pain?
It would block the effects of morphine and I would not recommend you try it unless your doctor has ordered it for you. This explains it much better than I can... Good luck Dave
Naltrexone, and its active metabolite 6-β-naltrexol, are competitive antagonists at μ- and κ-opioid receptors, and to a lesser extent at δ-opioid receptors. The plasma half life of naltrexone is about 4 hours, for 6-β-naltrexol 13 h. The blockade of opioid receptors is the basis behind its action in the management of opioid dependence—it reversibly blocks or attenuates the effects of opioids.
