Question about pain meds--Naltrexone?

Hi everyone,

I have a question for those of you taking narcotic pain meds for pain control. I have a PM doctor who is great and has found a combination of meds for my pain, however he also has me taking Naltrexone. He explained to me that it prevented withdrawl symptoms and "addiction" to the narcotics. I haven't heard of anyone taking this drug. I guess I am just checking up to make sure I am being given the right meds and not something that I don't need. I was told that the Naltrexone would make sure I was getting all the benefits of the narcotics without the bad effects. Is this true? Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance Becky
