Which Medication For The Treatment Of Alcohol Abuse Has Been Approved By The Food And Drug Administration?

ADDICTION CURE? – NALTREXONE, Look it up. Naltrexone breaks the cycle of addiction and brings new hope for alcohol dependence and opiate drug addiction. How long will the FDA keep it available? Why aren’t we hearing about this?
Naltrexone is one of the first anti-craving medications approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in the treatment of alcoholism and opiate addiction. In clinical trials, LDN has been shown to halt disease progression in Crohn’s disease and certain cancers, including pancreatic cancer, and to reduce symptoms in multiple sclerosis (MS) and autism. Ongoing trials are evaluating LDN in fibromyalgia and HIV/AIDS. Anecdotally, LDN has been shown to improve almost every autoimmune and neurodegenerative condition, including Parkinson’s disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Naltrexone modulates the immune system and promotes healing.

Naltrexone comes in two forms:

1) Vivirol®-an injectable time released form of naltrexone that is taken once a month. Visit Vivitrol’s website for more information.

2) ReVia© or naltrexone- taken daily in pill form.

Here are some of the many benefits of naltrexone in the treatment of drug and alcohol dependence:
• Most patients experience dramatic reductions in craving within hours of taking the first dose.

• Naltrexone blocks the high of alcohol and narcotics, reducing the incentive to drink or use drugs and significantly increasing treatment success.

• Naltrexone is a non-habit forming medication that can be discontinued at any time.

• Naltrexone can be given with other medications, especially those used to treat depression and other such psychiatric conditions.

• Naltrexone works best when used in combination with relapse-prevention therapies.

From a clinical psychiatrist:
“Naltrexone does work very well in about 75% of addicts who take it. No detox/hospitalization cost. It only fails in 12% of people who give it a chance. Only 10% of people drop out of treatment since it is so easy. It may not work unless you wait a full hour before you start drinking after taking the pill. A must read on the subject would be The Cure for Alcoholism by Roy Eskapa.”, ,

  1. God can cure addiction faster than the blink of an eye!

    Naltrexone side effects-Depression,suicidal ideation or attempts,blurred vision,fast heartbeat;mood changes,hallucinations,confusion,thoughts of hurting yourself;nausea,
    stomach pain,dark urine,clay-colored stools,jaundice,ear pain,ringing in your ears,skin rash,
    itching;wheezing,difficulty breathing,feeling anxious,nervous,restless,irritable;feeling light
    -headed fainting,increased thirst,muscle or joint aches;weakness,tiredness;insomnia
    

  2. Those side effects are also the symptoms of alcoholism and addiction.
    Its still active, still there , the meds don't cure anything and doctors KNOW it already. There is no cure, I worked the 12 steps and God removed my insanity.

    It helps alcoholics by teaching them there is no God pill. hahaha

  3. "…the meds don't cure anything.."
    I know of three MD's who believe this med helps. The jury is still out there on this treatment but from what these docs tell me, they themselves are eyewitnesses on its benefits combined with counseling. It is encouraging to hear that the 12 steps brought you to sanity however, because this is a great testimony on your part. I have several loved ones whom the steps have helped. Thanks!

  4. And zoloft helped me along with therapy whilst I was working the steps…but meds and therapy could NOT remove the obsession and compulsion to drink.
    That's God's job.
    The way to freedom is not therapy and medication, its prayer and meditation.
    Theres a world of distinction between relief (meds) and freedom.
    Relief through meds is temporary by its very nature.
    Freedom by working the steps is not something that wears off like relief.

  5. No, but Jesus was our first sponsor, he showed us the way.
    Jesus was a fully God realized man, or God manifesting in human form.
    On the ceiling of the sisteen chapel there is a painting, a hand pointing to God, its wise not to worship the hand but what it points to.
    If anyone wants to have Jesus as their God that's their affair, it's no-one elses business. It works for me if it works for them.

  6. An opiate antagonist for alcohol cravings..It basically takes the fun out of the alcohol high by acting on the mu opioid receptor.

  7. @amy2x, 
    Yes, God can cure addiction instantly. That is so true. But what you have listed here are the "possible" side effects of Naltrexone. Of all the people I know who took/take this drug, none had any side effects at all, but it (along with counseling) did help them overcome deadly addictions. They are now far from dead, living life to it's fullest and giving God the glory for this medication. I too was skeptical, but like many other helps, this drug really works.

  8. Google current info,it has been out and about for several years.  Naltrexone is an interesting drug.  It is being used for more uses now  Primary use is as antagonist for narcotics for overdoses or if patient accidentally takes too much pain meds, etc.  There has been research done to use if for alcohol addiction for years now, (Sinclair method and ? others) one such method even allowed moderate drinking and many did not wish to drink as they did not feel the "buzz"  

    Research is using low doses for immune modulation for infections and chronic illnesses and chronic pain syndromes.   It was also being added to topamax for alcohol addiction and also to wellbutrin as a possible weght reducing medication, however I don't think results were all that worthwhile.  Patients interested in trying this should speak with their physician and be aware they would need to carry information and a card to inform in case of emergency so the correct medications could be used as the naltrexone would inhibit usual narcotics and some emergency medications. 

  9. Alcoholics Anonymous has NO OPINION on outside issues. Tradition 10. Naltrexone IS an outside issue. AA does not endorse naltrexone treatment,nor does it oppose it. AA has NEVER said it is the only road to salvation for alcoholics. NEVER. All AA says is that it has 12 step program to try "if you are an alcoholic of our type". That's all. That's what Tradition 5 is all about.

  10. It was I think the way it was given to him. They went against everything your suppose to do…. Columbia University, knowing he was a 6 or more bag a day heroin user. Gave him Narcon and then the shot the next day. I thought he was going to die. He would have been better off kicking cold turkey. It's now three weeks later and he's finally sleeping and pretty much back to normal. but seeing what I seen. I'd rather be shot….

  11. AA cult members are really freaking out over Naltrexone, because it means less people might be forced to convert to believing in the AA god. Just look at the comments below.

  13. Naltrexone works nearly for 20% off people. In my case it did'nt work. New studies presented at world addiction congres Berlin 2016 about Baclofen. French and German double blind studies . Comes with outcomes 58% abstinence after 2 years taken Baclofen. But the most clinics don't give Baclofen becourse it is an off-label medicine. After long asking and going from one clinic to another i get it. Screwed the dosis up til 260 mg a day together with therapy aa/na group sessions and aftercare. After a fiew days lower the dosis slowly to the point the cravings came back. I'am now on a 160 mg dosis a day. Several years of strugling this seems to work for me.
