Other names for Depade
Depade has been criticized for its potential for dependency and addictive behavior. In particular, criticism comes from the fact that it’s primarily used to combat opioid use disorder and alcoholism. Though research and approval from the Federeal Drug Administration show that the drug does its job well, it’s also been criticized as a possible substitute for alcohol and other opioids rather than a tool that actually liberates users from drug dependency.

Vivitrol is used to treat alcohol use disorder and opioid addiction. Depade in its generic form serves as treatment for opiate addiction and alcoholism. It blocks opiate receptors to mitigate cravings. Its branded forms include Vivitrol and Revia. Research shows that 50 mg of Revia can counteract the effects of 25 mg of heroin taken intravenously.
Depade can be administered orally as either a tablet or in a liquid form. The same medication can also be injected.
Recreating the same habits from past substance abuse but around Depade
Rising tolerance correlating with gradual return of cravings
Depade use can intensify one’s sensitivity to the effects of opioids.
Quitting alcohol or many opioids cold turkey with the help of Depade but no professional oversight can lead to a fatal overdose.
Self-use without medical supervision can result in spontaneous opioid withdrawal symptoms, which might be bad enough to necessitate hospitalization.
