Question:

Hi extreme_hate, some of the symptoms of a hypersensitivity/allergy to naloxone we've seen here are hives, itching, rash, swelling in hands/feet, stomach upset. Please see:
http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/d...s/a605002.html
http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/d...l#side-effects

Although it doesn't specifically say naloxone alone, it says "Buprenorphine or buprenorphine and naloxone may cause side effects."

Are you having a reaction? If so, some people have not swallowed and the spit out any of the saliva built up while dissolving the pill/strip and if the symptoms go away, that can be an indication that the naloxone is the culprit. Or ask to be switched to Subutex to see if that helps.

Hope that helps.

Nancy
