Naltrexone effective in the treatment of Amphetamine Dependence

(Lysaker, Norway, 4 September 2008). A new study performed at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, demonstrates the efficacy of Naltrexone for the treatment of amphetamine dependence. Naltrexon Vitaflo, marketed by Navamedic's subsidiary Vitaflo Scandinavia, is the only naltrexone product in Sweden and Denmark.




Naltrexon Vitaflo is the only naltrexone product in Sweden and Denmark. Naltrexon Vitaflo is currently approved in the treatment of Alcohol abuse in Sweden and Finland and in the treatment of Heroine abuse in Denmark and Finland. Vitaflo Scandinavia has the rights to Naltrexon Vitaflo also in Norway, but the product is not registered.



Amphetamine is among the most common narcotics in all the Nordic countries. In Sweden it is the most commonly abused substance after alcohol and cannabis.
