Can You Overdose on Naltrexone?
No. Naltrexone contains no opiates and prevents overdosing by blocking the opiate receptors in the nervous system. You will have no positive or negative responses to the ingestion of alcohol or opiates. It is, however, still possible to cause extensive damage to the internal organs by continuing to abuse these substances despite feeling no effects.
