That does seem quite unusual, it may be about the narcotics, etc. that people order online. I notice some of the pharmacies in question have dropped their offerings of narcotics, antidepressants, ADD meds, etc.
Hi I’m totally new to forums & this is my first time posting but I’m really struggling to get hold of Naltrexone in the uk. I have watched the documentary “One Little Pill” and also the Ted Talk that Claudia did and I’m sure TSM is the way forward for me however after much research into Naltrexone and countless attempts trying to purchase it I keep hitting a brick wall. I have tried using the links provided by Joanna in this thread but none of them seem to work.....I have been trying all morning signing up to various sites to purchase Naltrexone but unfortunately without success.....can anyone provide me with a link to site where I purchase from please.....any help would be much appreciated....thank you
If you are drinking regularly, and your GP assesses that it is safe to do so, they should prescribe nalmefene in the UK if you ask for it (at cost of prescription i.e. £8) Naltrexone is only prescribed for abstinence in the UK.
Hi thank you for your replies. I have allready tried asking my GP to prescribe Naltrexone following a recent hospital detox which I completed 4 weeks ago. My GP advised me to speak to my recovery key worker who made me an appointment with the Dr at the service centre he subsequently informed me that Naltrexone was only licensed in the UK for people with a history of opioid dependence. I am sorry to say that my cravings became too unbearable and I unfortunately relapsed at a christening party on the weekend. This has led me to countless hours spent searching the web to purchase Naltrexone but without success:( I am going to try to purchase using the above link but before doing so just wanted to clarify what Nalmefene was.....is this just another name for Naltrexone or something similar but different? Thank again for your help it’s much appreciated.

Nalmefene is similar to Naltrexone, but it's patented and more expensive. It also seems to cause side effects again if you don't use it for awhile and then take a dose. Fewer people have reported this about Naltrexone.
You'll actually find listings for a few pharmacies at that link. Pharmacy2U is the only one that offers Nalmefene.
The doctor at the service centre is dead wrong about the Naltrexone. It's approved by NICE for suppressing alcohol craving following a supervised detox.
I also use Naltrexon,or LDN for my MS. Seems to have worked well for me for years. I want to know if mixing CBD oil with it is going to change this. Or is it even safe to mix together. would like some feed back on this. Thank You.
I bought 3 boxes of Revia in Spain today over the counter. 84 pills cost 65 Euros. HOWEVER the pharmacist told me that neither Revia or the generic naltrexone are available anymore. She did have selincro at 65 euros for 14 pills. She advised me to visit as many chemists as possible and buy up stock from ones who actually had it on the shelf. It was a very easy and respectful experience and I am going to take her advice and get some more where I can find it. Hope this is useful advice for people trying to buy these pills in Spain / Europe

I've heard this before, about a year back. You might check with the other pharmacies to see if they are able to order Naltrexone with no problem. Maybe it's just the situation at one particular distributor?
Becky, it's not a bad idea to buy naltrexone (you should have been offered either that or acamprosate after your detox and as Joe says, that is bollocks about opioid dependence if that's what the specialist doctor said), but if you're already in the system and not hiding, it may be cheaper and more convenient in the long term to get a prescription for nalmefene from your GP.
Hi thanks Joe for all your advise I have managed to purchase Naltrexone from one of the online Phamacys and my tablets have arrived today. I can not wait to get started and have high hopes to curb my drinking using TSM. The brand name of my tablets is “nalorex” and I just wondered if any has any experience with this type as the prefared brand by most appears to be “Naltima”. Many Thanks

I think that's a brand that's made in the UK, Becky. Joanna uses it and finds it reliable. Congrats on getting started! Most folks find that starting on half a dose on top of a meal helps, especially if you keep the water flowing throughout the night. If you do get any side effects, they should clear up within a couple of weeks if not just a few doses. Opiate painkillers, loperamide (Immodium) and the like should be off limits for a week or so beforehand, otherwise the Naltrexone will suddenly block them and you'll go into withdrawal.
Hi joe I went to the shop bought a bottle of wine and took my first 50mg tablet before reading your reply post.....did I mention I was keen to start TSM. Anyway I waited the full hour before having my first glass but after about 45 minutes my head went all fuzzy and I felt terribly sick so I had to practically fourse the wine down. I managed just short of 2 glass before I just couldn’t function and felt like I was suffering from a really bad hang over so I had to go and lie down on the bed for a couple of hours.
That evening around 6pm me & my partner had to take the kids to the circus as we had already purchased the tickets and I felt awful all night we got home around 9.30 and I came straight up to bed for the worst nights sleep ever.
Today I have woke up with a terrible headache and feeling quite poorly like I’m coming down with something. We are due to go out this afternoon for a pub lunch as it is a family members birthday.....I was hoping to take the naltrexone an hour beforehand so I could have a drink but now I feel to scared to in case I feel like yesterday but am unable to take to my bed. What would be your advise on my situation. Many Thanks for your help.
