User Comments about Vivitrol
19 Jan 2016 I have been on this drug for 17 months and it has changed my life. It has almost completely taken away my opiate cravings to a miraculous degree. I also struggle with alcoholism though and I feel like, at least for me, it doesn't help with my cravings or effect the euphoria of drinking. My drinking isn't severe, but it's definitely alcoholic and I'd like to know what other people have experienced.
