Hello,

Lately, after I drink alcohol, I noticed a pronounced and increased heart rate for hours. I'm wondering if this is at all affected/worsened by taking Naltrexone.

Has anyone else experienced this?

I haven't heard of it in that context, but have heard of it from people cutting back too fast and skirting withdrawal. Does it happen right after the first drink (I'm assuming you're compliant with waiting the hour)? Are you taking any other meds?

I definitely wait the hour+. It seems to be noticeable starting about an hour or so after the first drink. I take half a klonopin each day.

Are you working with a TSM doc on this?

I would expect klonopin to drop your heart rate and blood pressure. Usually alcohol and benzos are bad juju. There have been anecdotal reports that benzos can trip up TSM too, so if you've been stalling out on TSM, that could have an impact.

If you're not working with a doc, the list of TSM docs has been growing and there's a lot more coverage. Check Find a Physician in the menu here:
