Like any other medication, taking naltrexone can produce side effects. More common side effects of Vivitrol treatment are nausea, headache, dizziness, anxiety, tiredness and trouble sleeping. Talk to your doctor if these side effects persist or worsen. At times, patients may experience opiate withdrawal symptoms within minutes of taking Vivitrol. These effects include abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, joint aches, mood changes and runny nose. Talk to your doctor promptly if you experience any of these effects.
In rare cases, some naltrexone patients can develop liver disease from their Vivitrol treatment. Stop taking naltrexone and tell your doctor right away if you experience liver disease symptoms such as persistent nausea and vomiting, severe stomach pain, dark urine, and yellow skin or eyes.
Do not start any new medications without consulting your doctor while you are undergoing Vivitrol treatment.
