Drug Interactions With Naltrexone Injection

More Detail on Drug Interactions With Naltrexone Injection

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative reactions that can occur when naltrexone injection is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Cannabinoids
Cannabinoid are sometimes used to help relieve nausea, vomiting, and pain. Opioid antagonists, such as naltrexone injections, may increase or decrease the effects of cannabinoids. Let your healthcare provider know if you are being treated with a cannabinoid or use cannabinoid products prior to starting naltrexone injection treatment.  
 
Opioids
Naltrexone injections block the effects of opioids, making them less effective. If you need medication for pain, coughing, or diarrhea, you will need to take a medicine that does not contain an opioid. If an opioid is needed in an emergency situation, larger-than-normal opioid doses may be required, which could cause potentially serious side effects, such as severe respiratory depression (slow and shallow breathing).
