>how about Naltrexone?
When I see That word my immediate thought is, withdrawal. Like NALOXONE (NARCAN)the narcotic antagonist.
In other words I don't know nothing about it but just the way it's spelled sends shivers down my spine :o)
I'll look into it tho. Thanks for the suggestion.

>these drugs are easy on the body.

Right. The only problem I had was constipation.
I view Methadone as a simple, sort of basic, if you will, acting drug.
They have proven over the past 30+ odd years that it's been around that it's harmless.

AND unlike anti-depressants you don't have to worry about having freaky behavior flipouts, ya know what I mean?
Anti-depressants scare me. I've done some totally out of character things on anti-depressants. Things that I am shamed to the core about.
I'm scared of anti-depressants.

Diane, thanks Sean
