Abstract We recently reported that 6-beta naltrexol, the major metabolite of naltrexone in humans, reduced ethanol consumption in rats. Two new experiments were designed to compare 6-beta naltrexol and naltrexone across three dose levels on an ethanol or sucrose baseline using a limited-access procedure in.
