    Well....the day finally is here and I have started treatment. I am really hoping that this course of treatment is effective as I have not had much if any success with the other pain management drugs I have been prescribed.

    I'll keep you all posted:)

    Do keep us posted. It looks very promising for some things. What dose are you taking? Do you take it at night?

    The doctor prescribed 50mg tablets, I'm to take 1/4 tablet three times daily. I believe the tradename of the drug is Talwin. And I promise to keep everyone updated:)

    I misread your post - I thought you were referring to low-dose naltrexone, a very different drug. I've read that some people are being helped by the low-dose naltrexone, with both pain and boosting their immune systems.

    Good luck -

    I understand that Naltrexone hydrochloride is related to the potent opioid antagonist, Naloxone. They are both supposed to offer relief for FM patients when used in low doses:)

    Well...thats what I am hoping for anyway:)
