I tend to be sensitive to many medications and so I was cautious when beginning Naltrexone. I chopped a 50mg tablet into 7 pieces and took the smallest fragment first, and so on. So on the eighth day I was at 25. I believe that it was about two weeks before I really noticed a big change.

I tend to have a reduction of sexual desire on most of the SSRIs. I can't say that I noticed any difference from just being on the Prozac 20 to when I added the Naltrexone. Wayne
