Vivitrol is a monthly long-acting form of naltrexone which is an opioid antagonist or blocker. This means if this medication is in your system, relapse use or relapse slip is prevented. This medication prevents users from getting intoxicated or high regardless of the opioid used. The relief of knowing you have an “insurance policy” in case of accidental slip or use keeps your recovery and rehabilitation progress always moving forward.
● Naltrexone, Antabuse, Acomprosate, Bupropion, Trazodone, Seroquel.
These medications are oral medications that can block the effects of alcohol and opioids but also stop symptoms that could cause relapse like cravings, insomnia, anxiety and rebound depression after detoxification. These medications are particularly suited for short or long-term use while you continue your rehabilitative efforts.
Sulocade is a long-acting formula of buprenorphine which is an opioid that has to block properties for narcotic abuse that allow your brain to heal and recover from opioid-damaging drug use whether it’s prescription oxycodone, heroin, or fentanyl. Not forgetting daily oral doses makes this an ideal choice for some patients.
● Suboxone (generic: buprenorphine/naloxone)
Suboxone, or generic buprenorphine/naloxone is a combined oral drug with 2 medications in 1 dose. Buprenorphine is an opioid with blocker properties to allow your brain to heal as mentioned earlier and naloxone prevents intoxication or possible overdose of drugs that can result in relapse. Here at Psychiatry Unplugged, we find this drug the mainstay of opioid addiction
● Depot Antipsychotics
Many people suffer from psychiatric disorders that are considered psychotic in nature such as Schizophrenia. Medication for these disorders can be highly effective in restoring normal thoughts and healthy functioning. Patient compliance can be difficult keeping up with these medication regimens daily. A new depot form of these medications means once-per-month administration without daily pill use or forgetfulness. Because these medications are long-acting often less medication as a total daily use can be used with resulting fewer side effects. Depot forms for Abilify, Zyprexa, Invega, and many others are available in our office. Call us to find out specifically which ones!
