I have a an alcoholic partner who has been taking vivitrol since Jan 2100. He takes the shots but appears to be drinking with slurred speech.pupils not normal and confrontational and sometimes scent of alcohol. in usual alcoholic behavior denies and resents the insinuation.
Sounds like typical alcoholic behavior. Have you sought out resources to help yourself deal with an alcoholic partner? Al-Anon is a recommended group for partners/friends of alcoholics.
It is possible to drink alcohol while on Vivitrol. I'd call your partner's doctor and inform the doctor of your partner's behavior, and ask if drinking on the medication is dangerous.
