In the event that you need medical treatment, be sure to tell your healthcare provider that you are receiving VIVITROL treatment and the date of your last injection. This is important because VIVITROL can also block the effects of opioid-containing medicines that might be necessary to block pain in an emergency.
While on VIVITROL, suggestions for pain management include regional analgesia or use of non-opioid analgesics. If opioid therapy is required, it should be administered by specially trained healthcare providers and the patient should be monitored closely.
Ask your healthcare provider or call 1-800-VIVITROL (1-800-848-4876) to order a medical alert dog tag.
VIVITROL is not right for everyone. There are significant risks from VIVITROL treatment, including risk of opioid overdose, severe reaction at the injection site and sudden opioid withdrawal.
