Vivitrol and Opioids
4 Replies RSS
I need help. I'm getting a vivitrol shot in 2 days. I have taken opioids up until last night. I want information from anyone that has actually taken opioids up until around 65 hours before their shot, and if so, what were the side effects? Please I need help. I'm scared but I also need the shot. ## Yes, you need to be in full withdrawal, before getting the shot, or there is a risk of it putting you into dangerous precipitated withdrawals, which may include seizures, according to NIH warnings. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, and stomach pain. It would be best to make sure your doctor is aware of the last time you took opiates, to make sure it is safe for you to be given this shot. Are you on any other medications? ## Hi, i don't know much about viv...

Vicitrol shot
1 Reply RSS
So, I had about eight days clean, after going to a treatment center and going thru opiate withdrawls. When I got home I called about a vivitrol assessment and they told me to come in on the 24th. So I went and got a 30 mg Roxy. Well, today they called and told me to come in for labs tomorrow. Is the oxycodone in my system going automatically knock out my chances of getting the injection? ## Did you ever get an answer on this?!? I'm curious about the same thing. Getting my shot tomorrow!!!!

Vivitrol after Norco
2 Replies RSS
I am getting a vivitrol shot tomorrow at 3:30. I was in pain today and broke down and ended up taking eight 10/325 norco throughout the day. I took 2 every 4 hours. Being that it is just norco and not something a whole lot stronger, will I be ok taking the shot, or will it send me into precipitated withdrawals? Thank you. ## It could still send you into precipitated withdrawals, so it may be best not get the shot, unless your doctor says otherwise. The typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, vomiting, and muscle spasms. What did you end up doing? ## Got the shot. Definitely sent me into precipitated withdrawals. I started feeling better this morning. Wanted to die for the first 24 hours.

vyvytrol injections/ how long to

I was on suboxone for 2 years. Had surgury on my foot and was prescribed oxycodone. After that ran out I took methadone until I could get to a new suboxone dr. She saw that I had methadone in my system and wouldnt give me the suboxone. I ended up with a drug overdose and was rushed by ambulance to the hospital. After 7 days they gave me Vivitrol, with sent me into sever withdrawals. They want me to get a Vivitrol shot in 5 days, however I think it will be too soon. Any thoughts?

Help should I try vivitrol
Post a Reply
I've been a drug addict for 8 yrs. I've been on suboxone 1 time in my life for about a year then was clean for about 3. My grand mother died and needless to say I relapsed. I'm ready to get help again and the Dr. that helped me last time is only willing to help me with vivitrol. I've got hep.c and i know it's not good to do vivitrol with hep. C and very bad depression on top of it. My question is. I feel as if he is kinda pushing it on me and I have feeling I want stay on vivitrol cause the idea of knowing I'm going to have withdraws and I can't do nothing about it scares me to death plus all the side effects doesn't help either. So how do I get my dr. To understand that and maybe try suboxone instead cause it worked last time. Or am I just wrong all togethe

Vivitrol injection

I had the vivitrol injection done on the 15th of this month and I'm also type 1 diabetic. My blood sugars have been over 600 since the injection. I've talked to 4 different pharmacists, the maker of vivitrol and the fda and I have been told that my body and the shot are not working well together. Well I have an appointment on 2-11 at a sub clinic which the Dr that gave me the shot advised probably would be the best for me. Well today I got a call from the sub clinic telling me in order for them to see and treat me I would have to test dirty for pain pills. So the nurse pretty much told me to take something a day before I come in. My question is if I take a few pain pills before the 11th will they show up in my drug test so I can be seen at this sub clinic? Thanks. ## Please anyo...

Nasty taste in mouth from Vivitrol?
3 Replies RSS
I'm taking Vivitrol for opiate suspension. It's working wonders for me...but I have a horrible taste in my mouth....and everything I try to eat or drink doesn't taste as it should. Even brushing my teeth is challenging, because of the taste. Does anyone else have this problem? What did you do? ## Hello, Teri! How are you doing? Sorry about the problem that you're having. Yes, a change in taste is a reported side effect of Vivitrol, along with congestion, fear and lack of appetite. I've had a couple medications that have caused such an issue and the only thing I really found that helped me was to suck on strong candy, or sip cola throughout the day. Have you asked your doctor if they have any solutions? ## Thank you for replying! :) Yes, I've been sipping soda, an...

WHAT PAIN MEDICATIONS CAN YOU SAFELY TAKE FOR BACK PAIN WHILE YOU ARE ON THE VIVITROL INJ. ## Hello, Phillip! How are you? Naltrexone is listed by the FDA as neutralizing opiates, so the only things you could take that would work are non-narcotic medications, such as NSAIDs. Typical NSAID side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. What has your doctor recommended?
