I am on my 4th treatment and my hair is coming out in clumps. At first I thought it was from the trauma my body went through when I relapsed but it is getting worse not better. I don't want to stop taking it but I don't want to lose all of my hair. No hair is growing on my body either. Anyone?
Snucksmom: From research, this is what I have found concerning your question:
Dermatologic side effects reported during treatment of opioid dependence have rarely included oily skin, pruritus, acne, athletes foot, cold sores, alopecia, and rash. <alopecia is hair related>
My daughter had the same side effect. She hair fell out clumps. She is off the vivitrol now and her hair is growing back.
My hair is falling out. I am newly taking Vivitrol.
Also very dry skin.
