    Is it possible for Naltrexone to permanently block receptors?

    I stopped taking it 3 months ago and i tried some pain pills and got no effect

    any ideas?

    Stating the obvious.... Don't keep "trying" pain pills to get an "effect." That should solve it ;)

    No it is not SUPPOSED to. It has a half life of ~6 hours for an oral dose. If you have an implant, those degrade differently and you may still have it in your system. This forum is more about detox & recovery, so when you post here folks are going to read a few things into your post simply because you are asking the question here. Following that though process, the "concern" about possible accidents or surgeries and needing pain meds is pretty common addict thinking trying to rationalize usage scenarios. If you are clean and plan on staying that way, don't worry about it. Cross the brigde if/when it comes up.

    first of all i apologise for being rash and rude. I didnt mean to come across that way in asking my question

    thanks for that info. ive just been on other forums and also contacted a doctor, they have all said 'no it cant permanently block receptors' or 'its not possible'

    but that doesnt explain why the pills havent washed out of my system yet, maybe there is something wrong with my liver or is it possible i have a rare faulty opioid system and im 1 in a million who is stuck like this for the rest of my life?
