hey, just wanted to open the topic on vivtrol. Have u guys heard of it? Do you know how it works? I am off suboxone now, and in my efforts to find a doctor to help me with the withdrawls before i quit, i came to a doctor who tried to sell me on vivitrol. The dude said it has an 80 percent success rate, and said he uses it specifically for those coming off sub, or seb, or methadeezy. Basically he explained that, after you have sub out of your system for 5 days, you come in and you get a shot of this stuff called vivitrol, it contains naltraxone and some other stuff and the shot lasts 30 days! its crazy, i was like why would u give me naltraxone if im trying to quit subs? The guy just said it helps people to not relapse as it block receptors and is an opiate antagonist, so i didnt end up doing it. It sounded expensive, so i just went the gabapentin and clonodine route and it worked fine. I bring this up though because this could be a miracle drug for some people in here, as its similar to subs in that its a security blanket against relapse. check it out and post what you think about it! Its called vivitrol heres a link http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0000486/
