This prescription item requires a pre approved authority from the Government in order to get this item at the quoted price. Authority prescriptions need to be applied for by the doctor writing the script and can include reasons such as increased quantities due to dosage, increased repeats, use for a pre determined specified use, or the nature of the medication itself requiring specialist interaction. In the event that an authority is not granted on the script, the price will revert to the private price quoted for that item


This item contains more than one pack of a prescription product. Before this can be dispensed the doctor has to give approval. The prescription must be written for the total quantity or the prescription must be endorsed by your doctor "Regulation 24" otherwise we will be unable to dispense the increased amount. If you proceed with the order without approval, we will only send out one pack at the single pack price and refund the difference. Eg If your prescription is written out for 30 Tablets with 5 repeats and it does not have “Regulation 24 “ written on the script, the ONLY quantity we can dispense is 30 at one time. Further dispensing of this product could only occur after an appropriate length of time - usually 21 days but depends on dosage. In this example if you would like to obtain 180 Tablets then the doctor must endorse the prescription “Regulation 24” or the quantity must be written out for 180 and not 30. NB Conditions apply on the writing of a Regulation 24 prescription. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for details.

We can no longer accept signed authority forms from your doctor as permission to dispense more than one pack. Please contact our pharmacist for more information.

If you order this item as Private, NO PBS stickers will be issued. Once any prescription order has been sent the product cannot be returned for a refund even if your doctor changes your medication or you have an adverse reaction.

General Information


What is this leaflet?
This leaflet answers some common questions about ReVia. It does not contain all of the available information.

All medicines have risks and benefits. Your doctor has weighed the risks of your taking ReVia against the benefits they expect it will have for you. If you have any concerns about taking ReVia, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Keep this leaflet with the medicine. You may want to read it again.
What ReVia is used for
ReVia is used to help opiate drug addicts kick the habit. It is also used to help alcoholics dry out and remain abstinent.

ReVia tablets contain the active ingredient, naltrexone hydrochloride.

It is an opiate antagonist. This means it fights the effects of opiate drugs like heroin on the body, and blocks euphoria (or "high") due to these opiates.

Your doctor may have prescribed ReVia for another use. Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why ReVia has been prescribed for you.

ReVia is not addictive.
Before you take ReVia
ReVia is not suitable for everyone.

When you must not take it

* Do not take ReVia if you have had an allergic reaction to ReVia or any of the ingredients.

Symptoms of an allergic reaction may include, but are not limited to, swelling of the face or tongue, difficulty in breathing, wheezing or an itchy skin rash.

* Do not take ReVia if you are still using heroin or drugs like it. If you take ReVia right after taking an opiate you will suffer withdrawal symptoms (cold turkey) (such as nausea, vomiting, shakiness, sweating and anxiety) which may be severe.

* Do not take ReVia if you are on certain pain killers. Ask your doctor or pharmacist.

* Do not take ReVia if you have hepatitis or liver failure.

Hepatitis is liver disease with nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, feeling generally unwell, fever, itching, yellowing of the skin and eyes, and dark coloured urine.

* Do not take ReVia if you are pregnant or breast feeding unless your doctor tells you it is safe.

* Do not take ReVia if you are experiencing withdrawal symptoms.

* Do not take ReVia after the expiry date printed on the bottle.

* Do not take ReVia if the packaging is torn or seems to have been

opened, or the tablets do not look quite right. (See Product Description.)

Before you start to use it

- Tell your doctor if you have any allergies.

- Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or intend to become pregnant or breastfeeding.

- Tell your doctor if you have or have had any liver disease.

- Your doctor may give you a test called a Narcan challenge. This is to see if you are still using heroin or drugs like it.

Taking other medicines

Tell your doctor if you are taking any other medicines, including any that you buy without a prescription from your pharmacy, supermarket or health food shop.

ReVia may reduce or stop the effect of some cough and cold medicines, some medicines that treat loose bowel motions and some pain killers. If this happens, do not take larger doses of these other medicines. If you do, you may become very sick. Talk to your doctor. Your doctor will advise you.
How to take ReVia
Do not take ReVia to treat any condition other than that directed by your doctor.

Do not give ReVia to anyone else, even if their symptoms seem the same as yours. It may harm them.

How much to take

The usual adult dose is one tablet every day. Sometimes your doctor may tell you to take 2 or 3 tablets three times a week. You will usually take ReVia for at least 3 months, but it may be much longer. The time depends on how quickly you recover from alcohol or heroin


If you forget to take ReVia

If you forget to take a dose of ReVia, take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the dose you missed and take your next dose when you are meant to.

Do not take a double dose to make up for the dose that you missed.
