Has anyone heard of the studies of oxytrex? Combining an ultra low dose of naltrexone with oxycodone? I know this is a recovery board and this may not be the proper place for this but I also know that many of us (myself included) started our dependence/addiction with prescribed doses of narcotics. They say that oxytrex could possibly treat pain as effectively but take be less habit forming.

I too read about this. There was a similar combo of Morphine / low dose naltrexone.

The only positive information about it seems to come from the company that's developing it. My personal belief is it's pharma company hype, because I haven't heard anything about it for some time, and investors are wary.

I don't think we'll be seeing it any time soon. Unlike Suboxone, the antagonist ..will.. be active in these drugs, so essentially there will be a constant agonist / antagonist battle going on. I find it hard to believe there wouldn't be substantial side effects in some people. I really don't see how it could be more beneficial than just reducing ones agonist dose?

People have been trying since before heroin to separate opioids analgesic properties from its addictive. Heroin was actually marketed as a "non-addictive" morphine. All through last century chemists were tinkering with the chemistry, until finally some bright spark realised the analgesia was what made it addictive.

So I'm cynical. Well, I'm always cynical. :lol:

I think it's chemically similar to certain opioids. It's definitely synthetic. But the difference is that, because of its shape, it doesn't activate the receptors at all.

It woulda come from a laboratory. Some chemist was probably looking for a new opioid, synthesized naltrexone, realised it kicked other opioids off the receptors.. then he told his boss, and his boss probably thought "at least it does something. Maybe we could come up with a use for it?"

embeda, I believe is morphine/naltrexone- now I don't know anyone who has every been prescibed it but on all the drug boards-e.g. bluelight, opiophile they claim it causes precipitated wds (or some harm) from injecting it....personally, I don't know or care...I used to read those boards back in the active using days eight, nine years ago

I'm a huge fan of harm reduction- people are still going to do it , so why not provide the safest method or as much education as possible ..instead of dumb junkies, smarter junkies :roll: ....that's one thing im a huge advocate of- you should be able to buy needles, basteric..(sp) water, viles, the wheel filters (micron), all that shit should be accessible at the health dep. but they must give educational literature etc
