The efficacy of naltrexone is largely dependent on whether or not the patient carries a specific variant of the opioid receptors gene: the G allele of OPRM1. Vivitrol is much more likely to work in patients who carry this gene. 25% of patients seeking treatment for addiction carry this gene variant. White patients with the G allele of OPRM1 have a five times greater rate of effectiveness when taking naltrexone. This gene variant is most common among people of Asian descent. Only 30% of Europeans and Indians carry the gene, while between 60% to 70% of people of Asian descent are carriers.
Side effects of naltrexone may include nausea, difficulty sleeping, headaches, and anxiety. Metabolizing naltrexone can be taxing on the liver and is contraindicated for individuals with liver failure.
