What is Low Dose Naltrexone?
Naltrexone belongs to a class of drugs called Opiate Antagonists, indicated for the treatment of alcohol dependence behavior modification, opioid dependence cessation programs, and rapid detoxification from opiate overdose.
And it works for this purpose wonderfully. My brother, a pharmacist, had someone run to his pharmacy pleading for help. Her boyfriend overdosed on heroin. As the experienced pharmacist, he grabbed Narcan-an intranasal form of Naloxone -and after one puff in the young man’s nostril, he returned from the dead!
And that’s how Naltrexone works on opioid receptors, blocking them entirely and reversing their action, like breathing suppression when narcotics overdosing occurs.
Receptors are like locks:
The lock opens when they have the proper key, and a function occurs. Structurally, opioid receptors look like another class of receptors called Toll-Like Receptors (TLR-4) involved in inflammatory processes. TLR-4 receptor complexes are found throughout the body and, most interestingly, in the central nervous system (CNS). TLR are special receptors; they affect not only genomic activity but intracellular and membrane responses.
