If not fully detoxed from alcohol when you get a vivitrol injection, what happens?

Hi, Vivitrol/Naltrexone is designed to make drinking alcohol less pleasurable and lowers your tolerance to alcohol, but it doesn't act like Antabuse, you can still drink while taking the medication. If you are part way through a detox this is also fine, if you have been sober for only a few days for example, not a problem.

Thank you Delila, but what happens if you drank the day before you take it?

It depends how much you drank... if the alcohol is still in your system, it isn't ideal, but a long as it is at a low level, you will be fine, just may feel some hangover like symptoms
