I have been suffering from severe anxiety for about 7months
Patient :I have been suffering from severe anxiety for about 7months. I recently started seeing a psycologist and he prescribed me naltrexone 50 mg. Is this a medication normally prescribed for anxiety
Thank you for choosing ATD.
Naltrexone is an opioid antagonist. It is used for alcohol and opioid dependence. I do not know why your Doctor has given this to you but you can talk to another Doctor to get an opinion.
If there is a mistake, the Doctor will correct it. You should not stop taking the medication. I hope this helps you.
All the best.
