How Vivitrol Works

Making the decision to seek help for addiction is a significant step, and choosing the right treatment is crucial. Vivitrol emerges as a beacon of hope for many facing the challenges of opioid and alcohol addiction.

Firstly, if you or a loved one have recently completed detoxification, Vivitrol can be an effective next step. It’s designed to reduce the risk of relapse, ensuring that the hard work put into detox isn’t undone.

Additionally, for those who’ve tried other treatments without success, Vivitrol offers a different approach. Its mechanism, which blocks the euphoric effects of opioids and alcohol, provides a unique way to combat cravings and prevent relapse.

Lastly, if flexibility is a concern, Vivitrol’s once-a-month administration fits seamlessly into most lifestyles, allowing patients to continue with their daily routines without frequent clinic visits.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Buckeye Clinic is here to address any inquiries you may have concerning addiction treatment. Below, you’ll find some frequently asked questions. If you have a particular question that isn’t covered here, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us for assistance

What is Vivitrol?
Vivitrol is the brand name for naltrexone, an FDA-approved medication specifically designed for the treatment of alcohol and opioid dependence. It is an antagonist, meaning it blocks opioid molecules from attaching to opioid receptors in the brain. Unlike opioid agonists or partial agonists, which activate opioid receptors, Vivitrol prevents the euphoric and sedative effects of opioids. This makes it a valuable tool in Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) programs, helping to prevent relapse and support recovery.
How will I receive Vivitrol?
Vivitrol is administered as an intramuscular injection, typically into the gluteal muscle, once a month. The injection must be given by a healthcare professional. Before starting Vivitrol, patients must be opioid-free for a minimum of 7-14 days to avoid sudden opioid withdrawal symptoms.
Side effects of Vivitrol?
Like all medications, Vivitrol can have side effects. Common side effects include nausea, tiredness, headache, dizziness, vomiting, decreased appetite, painful joints, and muscle cramps. In some cases, patients might experience more severe side effects such as liver damage, allergic pneumonia, or severe depression. It’s essential to immediately report any side effects to a healthcare provider and to have regular check-ups to monitor liver function.
Is Vivitrol addictive?
No, Vivitrol is not addictive. It is an opioid antagonist, which means it blocks the effects of opioids rather than producing them. It does not produce a “high” or euphoric feeling, and there is no potential for misuse. Instead, it helps reduce cravings and the desire to use opioids or alcohol.
How long will I need to be on Vivitrol?
The duration of Vivitrol treatment varies by individual and is based on one’s specific needs and recovery progress. Some patients might be on Vivitrol for several months, while others might require it for a more extended period. It’s crucial to work closely with a healthcare provider to determine the optimal duration of treatment.
Can I stop using Vivitrol or switch to a different medication?
If a patient wishes to discontinue Vivitrol or switch to another medication, it’s essential to consult with a healthcare provider. Stopping Vivitrol abruptly or switching without medical guidance can lead to potential risks, including a heightened susceptibility to opioid overdose. A healthcare provider will guide the transition, ensuring it’s done safely and effectively.
