How long will symptoms last after i got a vivitrol shot? I can't sleep, have really bad nausea, and need relief
I was wondering if I get the vivitrol shot would I therapeutically still be able to take xanax (alprazolam)? Thinking of getting off Suboxone and trying the shot
Depends on your Dr.: Many doctors (myself included) have many concerns about the use of benzodiazepines in general, and Xanax (alprazolam) in particular (much higher potential for abuse) in people in recovery from opiate dependency, and particularly those who are being treated with Suboxone or methadone. However, there are no drug interactions, and Vivitrol does not block the effects of benzodiazepines. Talk to provider. ...Read more

More Suboxone?: It sounds like you might benefit from taking a higher dose of suboxone, but do not adjust your dose without first and always discussing with your prescribing physician. If your cravings for drugs were less on more suboxone, you may need an increase. Suboxone is not a cure. You probably need and could benefit from regular attendance at support group meetings like na.
