Can they use Narcan (naloxone) to re-set methadone tolerance. I ake 35mg total a day and sick of it! Constipaion and other drug interactions?
Clarification: Are you asking if Narcan (naloxone) reverses cp? No, it doesn't. Sometimes Botox is used for flexion contractures in hypertonic CP (increased muscle tone, decreased strength.) sometimes surgery is used for tight heel cords, either spinal or at the heel cords themselves. With hypotonia, low resistance to passive movement & decreased strength, no medication increases tone. Physical & occupational therapy help. ...Read more

Not usually: Naloxone is not screened for in most tests used for that purpose, although in larger amounts it may cross-react with the test for morphine/codeine. If confirmatory testing is done (gas chromatography/mass spectroscopy and others), Naloxone can be specifically identified, if one is looking for it. Did you od and get treated with naloxone? Your doctors need to know that immediately. ...Read more

What is the rationale of bulpurphine in management of opiod dependence? N its combination with naloxone
For Opiate Addiction: Suboxone contains Buprenorphine plus a short acting opiate blocker called naloxone. Buprenorphine is a semi-synthetic partial opiate agonist. That means, it has very unique properties compared with other opiates like hydrocodone and oxycodone. Suboxone can take away the cravings for opiates so the addict can work on figuring out why he or she takes opiates in the first place. Suboxone saves lives. ...Read more
Potentially, yes: A seizure would be very dose dependent and would be unusual, but possible based on the preceding medications on board at time of usage. Other variables contributing would include level of blood electrolytes, serum glucose, history of recreational drug use, alcohol ingestion or sudden cessation, and prior head injury. ...Read more
Not predictable: Whether naloxone is detected on a drug screen depends on each individual's body, on how much was taken, on when it was taken, on the quality of the test, on the type of chemicals the test looks for, on the diluteness of the urine, on pure luck, etc... If the person is taking the naloxone appropriately, no worries. Otherwise, stop using the stuff, and then no worries. ...Read more
Any good reasons a dr wouldn't want to trial naloxone/narcan off label for a few doses? (for depersonalization)
Lack of familiarity:
Most physicians who do not want to prescribe a medication off label don't prescribe because of a lack of familiarity or lack of comfort in using a particular medication. Another reason could be lack of education and there you can provide help by providing the doctor with the necessary journal articles. Www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pubmed/15876908

If being tested SPECIFICALLY for naloxone, meaning only naloxone and nothing else, how long would it or its metabolites be detectable on a lab test?
Half life: Thank you for clarifying. To indirectly answer your question, half life of naloxone is about 1.6 hours. Metabolism is in the liver. 75% of all original product and metabolites will be cleared by 3days and over 90% in a week. The reported sensitivity of the serum test is to less than 1%, so extrapolating about 10 days would be required. ...Read more
