Naltrexone stops Prednisone working?! (very worried)

Hello,

So i was wondering does Naltrexone stop Prednisone working?

My UC is flaring and im on 50mg of pred, im very worried it wont work

if it doesnt work are their more powerful immune suppressants that will override naltrexone?

I am literally freaking out, my doc is not available this week either. Im thinking of surgery and not responding to any drugs and the worst case scenario's!

i have stopped naltrexone. any ideas or advice please?

thank you all!

Running a quick drug interaction checker shows no known interactions. Have you consulted with your doctor or pharmacist?

There are many other types of medications to try, how long have you been on the prednisone?

From past experience, you should have seen some improvement on that dosage of prednisone.

Can you try calling the doctor to see if they will verbally have you try something else? I wouldn't just stop the naltrexone either, you should clear that with the doctor.

I should have explained a little more, i took full dose naltrexone as i was a pain pill addict


i just thought high dose prednisone would override any effects of naltrexone?
