Wrongful-Death Suit Filed Against Alkermes Regarding Vivitrol

A wrongful-death suit was filed in a California Superior Court against Alkermes following the death of a 26-year-old man who passed away of an opioid overdose after taking Vivitrol to treat his addiction. The suit alleges that “Alkermes failed to warn of the high risk of overdose when patients stop taking Vivitrol” and that “Vivitrol is ineffective and deceptively marketed.”
