The disposition of naltrexone during acute and chronic administration of 100-mg oral dose was studied in 4 subjects. Following an acute dose the mean (X) peak naltrexone plasma level was 43.6 +/- 29.9 ng/ml at 1 hr and for the major biotransformation product, beta-naltrexol, was 87.2 +/- 25.0 ng/ml at 2 hr. Twenty-four hours after the dose the X levels of naltrexone and beta-naltrexol declined to 2.1 +/- 0.47 and 17.6 +/- 5.0 ng/ml, respectively. Following chronic administration and X peak… CONTINUE READING
