I've been on the vivitrol injections for 4 months now. Every time I go in for an injection, I get a big hard painful lump at the injection site that doesn't go away for a long time. I still have a small lump from my first injection. I've been using a heating pad and just Kind of rubbing it out but when it hurts, it makes it pretty uncomfortable. And my pant line goes right over the area which is also very uncomfortable. I'm wondering if anyone is having similar problems or if there are any other suggestions on how to help dissipate the lumps faster?
Sounds like your doin it right otherwise. when you get home ice down the area for about 10 min. and massage the injection site but not right away. wait till ya get home. use a heating pad ice n heat treat it like a bruse. but all 3 people I know who are on it say the same thing. its like a lump that hurts like hell.
I am having the same reaction and am also looking for answers.
I’m having that too I know this is an old thread but hoping someone else has some advice on this.
Me too, I just got my first lump. It's been 5 days since injection. Wondering if anyone's gone down and how long did it take to stop hurting. After reading all kinds of scary things online it got me worried. I do have a lady doctor appt tomorrow so I was going to have him feel it. The area is not red and the onliy spot I see if the dot where the needle went in. Only hurts when I touch the areA.
