Una-contrary! It will make withdrawals much worse. You may use naltrexone at least 7 days after you stop using opiates.

I've been taking oxycodone for years now. I took the vivitrol shot yesterday without detoxing from pills. I went into a very violent withdrawal for about 12 hours. no sleep at all. I am still in withdrawal because of getting off pills. But if i took a pill, would it help with my bad withdrawals or will naltrexone throw me into a worse intense withdrawal?

Instructions for naltrexone suggest no opiate use for 7 days. I start in 2 days and have taken an opiate maybe 5 times over the last 3 days. Will there be any reaction still because there is no addiction? I wouldn't have thought it possible.

Before taking this medication, you must be free from all opiates, otherwise the FDA warns that it could cause you to go into dangerous precipitated withdrawals, which could including nausea, vomiting, rebound pain, and dangerous seizures.

How are you all doing? Did you experience any problems?

Matin, how are you doing? I am so sorry, you must have been really miserable.
