    Naltrexone question

    I am interested in taking naltrexone for depersonalization. It is used for substance abuse. I was wondering if anyone has taken it and what the effects are.

    I'm sorry to invade your board. I just thought someone here might know about naltrexone because it's used for substance abuse.

    Depersonalization is a form of dissociation. I "space out" and things doin't seem real. Dreamlike. Like I'm watching myself. Then everything comes into focus and I'm startled that it's real.

    There was only one small study on it used for depersonalization, but I'm going to ask my psychiatrist about it.

    Re: Naltrexone question

    hey lorib64-
    I was on naltrexone for alcohol abuse (about 6 years ago). Didn't last too long on it...started chewing them. The only side effect I noticed was a pretty bad headache/heaviness and difficulty driving at night. I also struggled with depersonalization on and off after I had my child (postpartum and PTSD issues). I was drugged up with so much CRAP! I know alot of docs tend to use anti-psychotic drugs like abilify, seroquel and a bunch others. I have never heard about naltrexone for this. I would LOVE to know what your psychiatrist says about this and if you give it a try. Good luck and post back .

    Re: Naltrexone question

    I am currently taking naltrexone for alcohol abuse, I did well on it for 3 months then went back to drinking. When I do drink it makes me very tired. I have no side effects from it at all.

    I saw my psychiatrist today and he prescribed naltrexone for me. I'll let you know how it goes. He said the patients he has on it don't have many side-effects.
