Active ingredient of naltrexone and mechanism of action
Naltrexone is an opioid antagonist. Its active ingredient, naltrexone hydrochloride, works by blocking the effects of opioids in the brain. It binds to opioid receptors and prevents opioids from binding, thereby reducing the rewarding effects of opioids and helping to prevent relapse in individuals with opioid dependence.
Uses of naltrexone
Naltrexone is primarily used for the treatment of alcohol use disorder (AUD) and opioid use disorder (OUD). It is used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan that includes counseling and psychosocial support. Naltrexone helps to reduce the cravings of opioid addiction and discourage drug abuse by blocking the pleasurable effects of opioid drugs.
Naltrexone is also used in the treatment of alcohol dependence. It can help reduce the desire to drink alcohol and decrease the rewarding effects of alcohol consumption.
Forms of naltrexone
Naltrexone treatment is available in various forms, including oral tablets and extended-release injectable formulations. The specific form and strength will depend on the intended use and the prescribing healthcare provider’s recommendations.
Dosage of naltrexone
The dose of naltrexone will vary depending on the individual and the specific condition being treated. It is important to take naltrexone according to the medical advice provided by a healthcare professional. For opioid dependence, naltrexone is typically initiated after a period of opioid detoxification. The extended-release injectable form is administered once a month, while the oral tablets are usually taken once daily.
