Has Anyone Else Heard About Or Tried Low-dose Nar-Cam (naltrexone) For Fibromyalgia?

Has Anyone Else Heard About Or Tried Low-dose Nar-Cam (naltrexone) For Fibromyalgia?

I have spent several months without pain medication, in order to try low dose Nar-Cam. I started on a therapeutic dose today. It has been rough, and while you take it, you can't have any narcotics for any reason- and they won't work if you do take them.
So I am wondering what my chances are of this actually working?

Everyone is different so there's really no way to of knowing if Naltrexone will work for you or not.. it's basically trial and error on your part.. first and foremost, just information for you Narcan & Naltrexone are NOT the same thing.. Also if you take opioids it typically makes you feel sick BUT some people do abuse pain medication with Naltrexone or Suboxone..I'm not certain if you take anxiety medication but that can also cause your respiratory system rate to slow down.. I was on it for awhile Naltrexone XR injection and the pills and I honestly didn't feel any better but the withdrawals were horrible BUT I personally didn't get any relief.. hope you will have better luck.. I wish you all the best

I've been on it for a year now and found that it took away the constant deep pain in my neck and shoulders (which helps me function a LOT better). However, it didn't solve my full body ache so I think it works differently for different people. I've never been put on narcotics for Fibro, though I've had to come off other meds before to try new stuff and it sucked so I feel ya.
