Does a person feel high or down when being medicated with naltrexone?
Aside from side effects of naltrexone such as nausea, headache, dizziness or tiredness, that are usually mild and does not last long, patients are generally unaware of being on medications because naltrexone, most of the time, has no psychological effects. This means that patients don’t feel either “high” or “down”. This medication is non-addicting, and even though it reduces alcohol craving, it does not interfere with the experience of other types of pleasure.
