Before Consuming the Medicine
Avoid Drug You are currently dependent on opiate drugs or going through withdrawal because a withdrawal syndrome "cold turkey" may be precipitated or worsened. You are currently taking a medicine which contains an opiate, for example certain cough medicines, antidiarrhoeals (such as kaolin with morphine) and analgesics (pain killers). Note: NALTREXONE does not block the effect of analgesics which do not contain an opiate (such as ibuprofen, paracetamol and aspirin). You have acute hepatitis or liver failure. You have ever been allergic to this medicine or to any of its ingredients (See What is NALTREXONE section). If any of the above affect you, or you are not clear if they do, discuss this matter with your doctor who will be able to advise. Seek medical attention immediately if opiates are consumed while taking NALTREXONE.
Drug Special Care You have liver or kidney disease. You are pregnant, planning to become pregnant or are breast-feeding. You are taking any opioid containing medicine (see above) or other medicines. You should also tell your doctor about any medicines that you take that you buy without a prescription. If you feel tired or dizzy after taking this medicine do not drive or operate machinery until you have discussed this with your doctor.

How to take the Medicine
Consumption Info no data available
Drug quanitty NALTREXONE tablets must be taken by mouth. Take NALTREXONE as directed by your doctor. You will usually be given a starting dose of half a tablet (25mg) daily increasing to one tablet (50mg) daily. This is the usual adult dose.
Drug Dose You must have stopped taking any opiate drugs for at least 7-10 days before starting NALTREXONE. Your doctor may carry out a test which will show that you are free from these drugs before starting your treatment. Doctors sometimes prescribe a different dose to this: if this applies to you, you should discuss it with your doctor if you have not already done so. You should continue to take NALTREXONE for as long as it is prescribed by your doctor. This could be for as long as three months or a duration specified by your doctor.
Excess Drug Consumption If you take too many tablets see your doctor immediately.
Forgot Drug Consumption If you forget to take a tablet, do not worry. Take a tablet when the next dose is due. Do not attempt to "catch up" by doubling the dose.
Stop Drug Consumption Do not stop the drug untill your doctor says you to do so.
Possible Side Effects
General Information It will help if you make a note of what you experienced when it started and how long it lasted. Wait 48 hours before taking opiates after stopping NALTREXONE, due to reduced tolerance to opiates. A medical alert card will be included with this medicine. Always carry your medical alert card to ensure proper pain treatment in an emergency. Some medicines may contain opiates, for example certain cough medicines, antidiarrhoeals and analgesics. NALTREXONE may block the effects of these medicines. Do not attempt to overcome this blockade by taking large quantities of these medicines since that may be life threatening. If you are ill and require treatment you must tell all of your doctors or pharmacists that you are taking NALTREXONE. They can then recommend a medicine which will be effective.
Common Drug Side Effects Most people find that NALTREXONE tablets are suitable for them. However NALTREXONE, as with all medicines can sometimes cause unwanted effects, so called side-effects, in certain people. The following unwanted effects have been reported most frequently while taking NALTREXONE: Difficulty sleeping, anxiety, nervousness, abdominal cramps and pain, nausea and/or vomiting, lack of energy, joint and muscle pain, headaches, loss of appetite, diarrhoea, constipation, increased thirst, increased energy, feeling down or tired, irritability, dizziness, skin rash, delayed ejaculation, reduced libido, chills, chest pain, increased sweating and increased flow of tears. One case of bruising/bleeding has also been reported. Your doctor may request that a blood sample is taken before you start treatment and at various times during treatment. This is necessary because NALTREXONE is processed by the liver and these tests indicate that your liver is working well. It is important that you stop taking NALTREXONE immediately and see your doctor as soon as possible if you develop abdominal pain lasting more than a few days, white bowel movements, dark urine, or yellowing of your eyes.
