I understand about the depression. I have it also. I don't have anything to help except that I suffer with you. hope you find an answer.

Thanks, Tamara. I'm trying to focus on the NAL without changing any of the meds I've been on for years. Good luck to you as well.

Pamthom,

I think this might be a question for options saves lives or the C-3 foundation, for they do have access to a medical professional that uses TSM. I think your case is delicate, since you are on anti-depressants.

I can tell you that I am on anti-depressants and nal. I do notice a flat feeling, and sometimes a little depressed; however, I am unsure if that is from the nal., lack of al., or me. I have Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), so the weather plays a big part of my depression. If it rains, I will feel that depression a little more and this has been a rainy summer for us.

I am sorry I cannot be much help; however, the other website are pretty fast in their responses.

Let us know how you are doing, and keep posting,

Jaba

Hi all,
I've been on Naltrexone about one year now.
When I first started taking the Naltrexone, I felt quite spaced out for the first two weeks. After that I felt fine again.
In October this year, I had a couple of weeks when I felt depressed. I particularly felt depressed on my birthday (the 28th October). Fortunately the depression has now left me. I could tell that it was the Naltrexone making me feel depressed, as I have never experienced such deep depression in my life!
Naltrexone has different side effects on different people. Fortunately for me, the side effects have been short lived.
I am still getting used to how Naltrexone affects my moods but it is generally all good. I am improving.
I love how I can now drink without feeling guilty. I used to be so anti-social because I was aware that I had a drinking problem but I still continued to drink, & the guilt made me withdraw into myself. Now I am starting to feel much more comfortable when I drink because I am able to control it.
At present I am getting no side effects from the Naltrexone, and life is getting much better for me!
Thanks.
