    I've been using it for about a week now and still drink, but I feel/KNOW that my tolerance level has decrease significantly. I used to go through a 9-15 pack of 16 oz. beers a day. Now? I drank 5 today and don't want any more and I have a buzz that feels like I'd drank my normal amount. Time will tell, but it seems to be having a positive effect as of the time I'm writing this. ...

    Up until last Friday I was drinking a quart of vodka a day for years and functioning, yes functioning. I started on the Naltrexone that day and have not had a drink for a whole week. It's not easy, what with the alcohol withdrawal also. I don't crave it, I have twice as much energy and after a full physical check-up it's a miracle I am relatively healthy...One day at a time of course ... Show Full Comment

    I have been a binge drinker for about 20 years. I have been sober for 3 years once then 5 years another time by going to AA. I did not enjoy AA like many people do. I was not drinking, yet I was very unhappy. I have been using 50 MG of Naltrexone for 2 years now. I still drink, but I do not drink alcoholically as I used to. I drink about 2 times a week, and after about 3 beers, its as though a lig ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    I have been in AA for over a year and had multiple relapses. I received this drug from a dr. at the hospital after a horrible binge. I just couldn't stop but since taking Naltrexone it has been like night and day. I have not had a drink in 5 months so far and I do not even have any cravings or thoughts of drinking. I still go to AA a few times a week because I feel like I need to remember how ... Show Full Comment
