I haven't been on here for a long time, but back now as things not working out. It's about my daughter (36) who has been taking Naltrexone for at least 18months..at first it seemed to be working and the good part is that she has not been "off her head" since then. However she seems almost to be trying to outwit it and forces herself to drink beer about 5 nights a week, after taking a tablet, and still drinking up to ten units a day. I am deeply worried as she has anxiety and depression anyway and I know the naltrexone stops the good feeling too, and I've no idea what side effects long term use of this tablet might have..and its expensive (she's on benefits so I'm paying). If I was reading this post by someone else I would think "her daughter obviously doesn't want to give up so I'd leave her to it) which I get, but I'd really like any positive advice anyone could give. I'm scared of stopping providing because I don't want her to go back to the bad drinking nights, and I know she does want to be free of alcohol but finds life too scary without it.
