What is Vivitrol?

Vivitrol is an FDA-approved medication that works to block the effects of alcohol.

This extended-release prescription medication contains naltrexone as the active ingredient, which is non-addictive and non-narcotic.  Because of these features, Vivitrol has shown to be an effective treatment for clients being treated for alcohol use disorder (AUD) or opioid use disorder (OUD).

How does Vivitrol work?

Vivitrol stops the relief of pain and other feelings of well-being that may contribute to the misuse of substances and/or addiction. 

Vivitrol:

  • Blocks endorphins released while drinking (reduce the effects of alcohol)
  • Blocks opioids from reacting with opioid receptors
  • Reduces cravings for alcohol and opioids

What to expect from a Vivitrol Shot?

Vivitrol is administered as an injection, typically into the arm, and is available to those who have been off opioids for at least 7-14 days.  It is, however, available to those who are active alcohol drinkers.

The effects of Vivitrol shots start to appear about three hours after the injection and you can expect to receive a monthly injection.  

The concentration of this medication in the body can vary from one person to the next based on factors such as:

  • Metabolism
  • Body Mass
  • Age
  • Gender
  • Medical History
  • Exercise Habits
  • Hydration

Vivitrol Side Effects

Side effects of Vivitrol injections can vary in severity but tend to subside over time.  If you’re concerned about your side effects, it is advisable to address them with your treatment provider.

Common side effects of Vivitrol Injections:

  • Nausea
  • Drowsiness
  • Headache
  • Anxiety
  • Dizziness
  • Loss of Appetite
