Is Naltrexone dangerous?

There are many discussions regarding Naltrexone: one say that Naltrexone kills addicts, other say that it’s perfectly safe. Let’s hear the expert’s opinion, Dr. Victor Shubaev addresses to patients and their families.

"In various countries around the world, particularly in Australia, it is sometimes spoken and written about death cases during Naltrexone protection. It is necessary to have a clear understanding: Naltrexone does not cause death, what causes death is heroin - as when an addict persistently tries to use the drug despite the Naltrexone blocker. Search the Internet, look on YouTube and make sure to see all the publications on these fatal cases before deciding on Naltrexone therapy. Naltrexone blockade must not be given to those who resist Naltrexone implant. Such people must be denied this kind of treatment, because it requires the patient's responsibility and determination. This therapy is only for those patients who have confirmed their consent, with a fully informed understanding of the terms. If they seriously and thoughtfully choose abstinence using Naltrexone, they deserve the kindest and genuine treatment by a doctor."
