WHAT IS VIVITROL?

Opioid and alcohol dependence are chronic, relapsing brain diseases that can be devastating both psychologically and physically. While counseling can help patients work through the psychological aspects of dependence, medication may help address the physical changes in the brain.1 Prevent relapse in opioid-dependent patients with VIVITROL® (naltrexone for extended-release injectable suspension) – a non-addictive, once-monthly injectable medication – when used in conjunction with counseling, and following detoxification.2

MEET VIVITROL, AN ANTAGONIST TREATMENT OPTION

VIVITROL is indicated for:

  • Treatment of alcohol dependence in patients who are able to abstain from alcohol in an outpatient setting prior to initiation of treatment with VIVITROL. Patients should not be actively drinking at the time of initial VIVITROL administration.
  • Prevention of relapse to opioid dependence, following opioid detoxification.
  • VIVITROL should be part of a comprehensive management program that includes psychosocial support.

VIVITROL is contraindicated in patients:

  • Receiving opioid analgesics
  • With current physiologic opioid dependence
  • In acute opioid withdrawal
  • Who have failed the naloxone challenge test or have a positive urine screen for opioids
  • Who have exhibited hypersensitivity to naltrexone, polylactide-co-glycolide (PLG), carboxymethylcellulose, or any other components of the diluent

VIVITROL is not right for everyone. There are significant risks from VIVITROL treatment, including risk of opioid overdose, injection site reactions and sudden opioid withdrawal.
