Extended release naltrexone: Addiction’s silver bullet?
We are seeing no end to the increase in addiction to opioids, primarily oxycodone (aka OxyContin, Roxicodone and Percocet) and heroin. Dr. Lee has been working with an extended release adaptation of the drug naltrexone (XR-NTX) with great success.
XR-NTX essentially inoculates an individual from the euphoric or sedating effects of heroin and oxycodone. Even when using large amounts of opioid drugs, a person being treated with XR-NTX does not get high. It becomes a waste of money to attempt getting high.
Is this new therapy too good to be true? I hope not.
