You will find information on Naltrexone contraindications (conditions that make the use of a drug inadvisable) at https://www.drugs.com/pro/naltrexone.html.
Naltrexone is contraindicated in:
1. Patients receiving opioid analgesics.
2. Patients currently dependent on opioids, including those currently maintained on opiate agonists [e.g., methadone or LAAM (levo-alpha-acetyl-methadol)].
3. Patients in acute opioid withdrawal.
4. Any individual who has failed the naloxone challenge test or who has a positive urine screen for opioids.
5. Any individual with a history of sensitivity to Naltrexone or any other components of this product.
It is not known if there is any cross-sensitivity with naloxone or the phenanthrene containing opioids.
6. Any individual with acute hepatitis or liver failure.
Your doctor would be the best person to talk to.
