Naltrexone is the generic name. It has only been available as a generic for a year or so. Revia and Trexan are manufacturers brand names of the same thing.

Naltrexone has FDA approval for the treatment of certain drug and alcohol addictions. It fills in or blocks the receptors that influence the action of and craving for those drugs, etc. Naltrexone was accidentally discovered to help some people with hard to treat depression when combined with an SSRI type antidepressant. Nobody seems to know why this even works as yet. You may wish to review my postings since February to get more information. Best regards… Wayne
