Andrew Keyser, MD

I am glad that patients have a way to easily connect with a provider, through an intuitive platform, to get medications that can truly change their lives.

I want to be a helpful resource for people who want to make a positive change in their life.

  • ⁴ Prescription medication is available only if prescribed by a licensed clinician
Naltrexone is a prescription medication used to treat alcohol dependence. It is available only if prescribed by a healthcare provider. You should not take naltrexone if you use opioids, including prescription drugs or street drugs that contain opioids, as naltrexone can cause sudden opioid withdrawal. Common side effects of naltrexone include nausea, sleepiness, headache, dizziness, vomiting, decreased appetite, painful joints, muscle cramps, and trouble sleeping. These are not all of the side effects of naltrexone. Tell your healthcare provider if you have any side effects that bother you or do not go away.
