One of the
approved two ways to take naltrexone
: a pill once a day (naltrexone, revia
) or a shot once a month (vivitrol).
There is another method, when the patient is instructed to take Naltrexone only before drinking. There are some evidence that of these works better. I use this "sinclair method" a lot. In my practice, i normally combine naltrexon with other medications to increase the odds of success.
