Bassically if one were completely detoxed from all opiates and administered naltrexone for an extended period of time would a tolerance to that develop and wouldn't the symptoms of sudden withdrawal from it cause your opiat receptor system to become hypersensitive even to its own endogenous endorphin, there is a new treatment out for alcoholism using naltrexone and this general principal, anyone agree or understand what i'm trying to say
Yea I think I undestand what your trying to say. When one has been taking an opiate for a long time, it causes the bodies endogenous system to shut down hence a tolerance. It takes time for this system to re establish. Once it begins to "flow" again I suppose the receptors could be hypersensitive to the endorphins. Makes sense to me, but what do I know.
Along those lines, Low Dose Naltrexone is now being used to treat a number of ailments including chronic fatigue immune deficienty (CFIDD), cancer, aids, Chron's disease, lupus... as it is shown in low doses to improve the immune system. I'm wondering if you are on Suboxone ( a low dose, would it have the same effect or opposite)? Does Suboxone build or suppress the immune system? Since Naltrexone has been proven to improve it, does buprenorphine since it is an agonist versus anti-agonist, hinder the immune system?
