Your doctor may recommend that naltrexone oral be given to you by a family member or other caregiver. This is to make sure you are using the medicine as it was prescribed as part of your treatment.
Do not use narcotic drugs or alcohol while taking naltrexone oral. Never try to overcome the effects of the medication by taking large doses of narcotic drugs or alcohol. Doing so could result in dangerous effects, including coma and death. Ask your doctor before using any prescription or over-the-counter medicine to treat a cold, cough, diarrhea, or pain while taking naltrexone oral. These medicines may contain narcotics or alcohol.
Naltrexone oral can cause side effects that may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be awake and alert.
Carry an ID card or wear a medical alert bracelet stating that you are using naltrexone, in case of emergency. Any doctor, dentist, or emergency medical care provider who treats you should know that you are using this medication.
Additional forms of counseling and/or monitoring may be recommended during treatment with naltrexone oral.
