I went to my medical centre yesterday and told the dr what I wanted to do. She had never heard of it and wanted to know who had prescribed it for me. Greatly daring I said " You".
She did not look happy and proceeded to read me all the side effects (to a 50mg tablet as that is the standard dose)) only looking happier when I told her that I was only planning to take 1.5 a day. Possibly increasing it to 3.00 after a month. She said she wanted me to return for bloodtests for kidney & liver after 3 months. Surething I said obligingly.
Then I took the script
to my compounding chemist who said fine & he agreed to put in a fill that had no inflammatory ingrediants. He also suggested alternating 1.5 one day and then 3.00 the next when I decided to increase it.
Went to make it up and came out saying "Who has been in my drawer? Where has all the naltrexone gone??" Apparently it is very addictive so desirable to some. Anyway I start tomorrow - will let you know how it goes.
