  4. Pregnancy, plans to become pregnant or inadequate birth control.
  5. Present or recent use of over-the-counter psychoactive drug, prescription psychoactive drug or drug that would have major interaction with drugs to be tested.
  6. History of severe reaction to Narcan challenge, which may have been given as part of admission into the Methadone Maintenance Program or to reverse overdose.
  7. Liver function tests greater than 3 times normal, BUN and Creatinine outside normal range, or thyroid function tests outside normal range.
