Naloxone is available as narcan. Lots of places will give it to you if you say you're worried about someone. Start there. As for naltrexone, I'm assuming you have a doctor who had approved it. If not, you're in for a rude awakening when your realize they just don't give that medication out for off-label conditions.

It supposedly will be OTC soon, but in the mean time it will be hard to get a regular supply.

I tried naltrexone and I posted something about my experience before. 6 mg felt like it had reduced my DR quickly. But then the effect did not stay for more than a few days. I tried again later at 25 mg (usual minimum dosage) and it was uncomfortable and maybe increased my DR a bit. Someone pointed out that the positive effect I had the first time could have been a placebo effect, and it's not impossible. But even if it was not, the effect was not very strong and did not last for me.

It's a crap shoot. Lamictal made my dp much worse.
