Choosing a random one out of the potential interaction list.

Interactions between your drugs
Moderate
acetaminophen naltrexone
Applies to: Vicks NyQuil Cold & Flu Nighttime Relief (acetaminophen / dextromethorphan / doxylamine) and Vivitrol (naltrexone)

Naltrexone may cause liver problems, and using it with other medications that can also affect the liver such as acetaminophen may increase that risk. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with these medications. Call your doctor immediately if you have fever, chills, joint pain or swelling, unusual bleeding or bruising, skin rash, itching, loss of appetite, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark urine, pale stools, and/or yellowing of the skin or eyes, as these may be signs and symptoms of liver damage. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions or concerns.

Using dextromethorphan together with doxylamine may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, confusion, and difficulty concentrating. Some people, especially the elderly, may also experience impairment in thinking, judgment, and motor coordination. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with these medications. Also avoid activities requiring mental alertness such as driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how the medications affect you.
