The chemical reaction things confuse me, if I'm on a depression/anxiety med (effexor)
Does that interfere/conflict with Naltrexone use and TSM ?

Are other meds more compatible ? (lexapro or ?)

Would be interested in hearing from others in same situation

Hi DD and welcome!

I have no experience with this but several members do. Enter "SSRI" in the search field above and you will find the posts.

As one is a Selective Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitor and the other an Opioid Receptor Antagonist, theoretically they should compliment each other, and indeed several clinical trials have been, and are currently being carried out (Google "SSRI and Naltrexone") to see if the combination of the two types of drugs can help depressed alcoholics. The glitch is that these trials are not using TSM... the formula is: SSRI+Nal+Abstinence+Behavioural Interventions (e.g. CBT) so I don't know how self-administered SSRI+TSM would work...

Good luck

I am taking an SSRI (citalopram). I wa sprescribed the Naltrexone by a psychiatrist and he doesn't seem to think there is any problem taking them together (i.e. dangerous drug interactions).

I personnaly don't see why the SSRI should prevent the opid antagonist action of the Naltrexone a sthey work on dofferent chemicals...But of course i am nbot an expert
