But that went away and I had never really expected it anyway. Other than that it has been amazing for me. It has compleatly blocked any cravings I might have,

Cravings for food, cocaine, opiates, or everything?

If you want to reduce your dose, memantine may be useful for that purpose also. See:

However, I don't think it would be good idea to quit it entirely, because its blockade of kappa-opioid receptors is quite beneficial for the dopamine system. I wonder what the ideal dose might be in the long term.

Did you not experience any sedative effects at the higher doses? Or perhaps high doses are less sedative? I notice some sleepiness-like effects at a dose as low as 0.3 mg (intranasal), but I've just started it, so I'm expecting side-effects to diminish, and some of them already have. My initial experience is that it's really good for my ADD, at least when used in combination with methylphenidate.
