Boiling Naltrexone? EDIT: I have found the answer

According to Wikipedia, the melting point of Naltrexone is 169° C. Does this mean that boiling an aqueous solution of Naltrexone would not damage the Naltrexone molecules?

Does anyone here know enough about chemistry to know how mixing substances with water effects their melting points and stability?

Thank you very much.

EDIT: I have found a research paper which says that Naltrexone decomposes at 70° C so I have found my answer to this question. “Formulation and Stability of Naltrexone Oral Liquid for Rapid Withdrawal from Methadone”
