Description of Revia
Revia is an opiate antagonist. Its generic name is Naltrexone. You can buy Revia in the form of oral tablets.
Indications & Dosage of Revia
Revia is used for the treatment of alcohol or narcotic drug addiction. It works by preventing the opiate effects of other narcotic medicines or alcohol such as pain relief and a feeling of well-being. It also decreases your desire to take an opiate. Revia is usually given to the patient as part of a complete treatment program that includes compliance monitoring, lifestyle changes, behavioral contract, and counseling.
For the treatment of alcoholism, you will be recommended to take Revia 50mg per day for 12 weeks. For treating opioid dependence, Revia 25mg per day may be the initial starting dose. If withdrawal signs do not occur, the dosage can be increased to Revia 50mg per day.
Side Effects & Interactions of Revia
Revia patients may commonly experience anxiety, nervousness, irritability or restlessness. They may also encounter lightheadedness, fainting, increased thirst, joint or muscle pain, weakness, tiredness, insomnia, impotence, decreased sex drive or difficulty having orgasms. These are short-lived side effects of the drug and subside on their own as your body adjusts to the drug. However, you must inform your doctor at once if any of these persist or worsen.
Some serious side effects associated with Revia include:
- Eye problems such as blurred vision
- Fast heartbeat
- Hallucinations, mood changes, confusion, suicidal thoughts
- Stomach pain, nausea, loss of appetite, low fever, clay-colored stools, dark urine, yellowing of the eyes or skin
- Ringing in the ears, ear pain
- Itching or skin rash
- Difficulty breathing, wheezing
Symptoms of an allergy include swelling or itching of the face, throat, lips or tongue, severe dizziness, difficulty breathing, or hives on the body. If you experience any of these symptoms, stop using the drug immediately. These are signs that you have an allergy to Revia and that it may lead to severe complications in your health condition.
Before you buy Revia, inform your doctor if you are already using a cough medicine (e.g. dextromethorphan), diarrhea medicine (e.g. diphenoxylate), thioridazine, disulfiram or narcotic drug (e.g. propoxyphene, hydrocodone or codeine). These drugs may adversely interact with Revia and lead to serious complications or worsen your condition.
