Bad experiences from naltrexone/vivitrol
« on: January 02, 2017, 08:33:36 AM »
Has anyone here ever gotten the vivitrol shot and had bad/negative effects from it?  I was thinking about possibly getting it since i can get it for free, since my dude just had got it a week and a half ago now.

Well he had about just over 3 weeks clean when he got the shot. He said that he was sleeping good again, had an appetite and had energy after detoxing, but still had cravings to use. So he gets the implant and immediately said that he got a head ache, his stomach got fucked up amd he felt shitty for the rest of the first day.  Then i got a text saying that he didnt sleep a wink the whole first night and food tasted like shit for a couple days . Said he barely slept a couple hours in the first 5 or 6 days since he got it. And this all happened the day he got the vivitrol, cause he was sleeping good right up until then.

This really scared me from going right into the monthly shot, and if anything, i may try the daily pills for a week so i can stop if i dont like it.

Anyome else have bad reactions after getting the vivitrol? And it sucks that youre stuck with it for a whole month then.

I'm terrified of naltrexone, and nothing in the world would make me take it. I literally would rip it out of my skin if I had it put in.


The only advice I can give u is that if u want to take it, get on the pills and make it a week at the dosage the implant will give u. Then give it another week at a slightly elevated dosage as the implant may release more than it needs to as I don't think they can be totally exact all the tim

It is absolutely possible to get all sorts of negative effects, headaches, sucicidal thoughts, lack of sleep, loss of any good feelings (I believe the industry calls that kills the reward system i.e. Anything that should make u feel good doesn't) so yeah, don't take getting on it lightly

Anyway, my recommendation is very very against it, but if u are absolutely sure u want to do it and know the risks, take the pills for 2 weeks as I said, at the rate the implant says it releases, then take them at 150%

The Devil's drug.

All this talk of it messing with our natural endorphins makes me wonder just how potent they are and what binding affinity they have.

I'm running on my own now and I'm still amazed how my body keeps regulating them.

I just wish I could get off my fat ass and do some exercises to get my own back in action.

So Naltrexone would even make exercise unrewarding?

Yeah, not feeling even natural opiates/endorphines was what always scared me.  Im thinking its gotta fuck with em since he said it felt like he took ten steps back as soon as he got it. 

And its not even an implant anymore,. I thought it was until i got into an argument with him that it was.  Well it turns out they now give it in a liquid form right below your beltline in the back.  Im guessing people were able to remove the implant so they made it unremovable now

An old timer from the phile just got it for alcohol and has been giving glowing reviews of it. She has been away from opiates for at least a year though

That just really scares me to go from sleeping well sober and eating, to all of a sudden not sleep for a week or so and have no appetite either.  To be stuck like that for a month is unreal imo.

I know SAMHSA has a vivitrol fact sheet on their website and it says that while it helps with cravings for alcohol, it usually does not help with cravings for opiates.  It says you may need "other help to deal with opioid cravings" and "talk to your doctor".

I personally wouldn't go near that shit! Especially when it flat out said it probably won't help with cravings. If all it does is block the opiates, I do not see the point.  If it as just about not getting high, I guess it would work, but we all know that addiction is way more complicated than that.  Plus, there is no case that I can fathom where blocking naturally occurring, feel good brain chemicals is a good idea.  Sounds like a one way ticket to something worse than hell to me!

You couldn't pay me enough to take that shit. Sounds like the worst thing ever to me.

(...)

Word.
NO FUCKING WAY to let some fucking shrink do it to me.

Keep in mind that shot is the point of no return. As if you made your own natural endorphins shut up, and send yourself for the doom at least one month long. Something IRREVERSIBLE.
No one would bring me to do that, one needed to immobilize and GAG me before they'd GAG my endorphins, lol.
If I were in your shoes I definitely wouldn't do something so thoroughly.


"Dont take a permanent solution for a temporary problem."  ;D
I know, I know, this saying is for suicidal tendencies... but since time is relative (especially as you're sick) and you never know if this "month" isn't going to be perceived as INFINITY to you,
it sounds like kinda endophin' SUICIDE  to me.

I may be oversensitive after my last "adventures" with PWD, anyway I'm really wary and untrustful in terms of what messes in my reward system and interfers the "dialogue" between the regular, right ones molecules and receptors since.
