Nalmafene and driving

Posted , 3 users are following.

Is there anyone out there that is actively taking nalmafine and driving on it cos I'm having the unpleasant side effects of it and I drive for a living although I am only on tablet five and have been told it takes about a week to subside

I'm off sick but need to get back to work I just need to know if I will ever be able to drive on this medication

    Hi John

    Let's just say it seems to suit some better than others.  For me, I could not get beyond a feeling of alienation and depression that made me feel ill, disengaged and negative, along with some other unpleasant side effects that I have documented in a previous thread.  Others seem to persevere and breeze through.  I look forward to the Selincro antidote that makes you feel joyous! Meaanwhile, I think the answer lies more in sorting out your head, than in some magic pill.  Lots of good advice in these threads.

    Good luck!

    P.S. I did drive on it.....not recommended!

    Hi John,

    My job involves a lot of driving. I too was concerned by the side effects. I felt dizzy/light headed and my concentration was poor for about two weeks. You just have to be extra vigilant, constantly mindful of your driving.

    Best of luck, it's worth the effort.
