Precontemplators showed significantly less change in smoking rate than all other patients at the first and last four time points. Abstract Naltrexone (NTX by its pharmacological action in the mesolimbic pathways, should decrease reinforcement from nicotine as well as from alcohol.

RESULTS : Pretreatment with the nicotine patch attenuated smoking-induced decreases in craving, negative affect, and rates of.

Research Support, Non-U.S. Gov't Research Support, U.S.Neither medication significantly affected carbon monoxide intake or subjective effects of smoking except that 42 mg TNR resulted in lower subjective physiological activation. No interaction effects were found, and no results differed by gender.
Results suggest that starting smokers with 42 mg TNR may increase comfort during initial abstinence, but limited support is seen for naltrexone during smoking abstinence.Both 21 and 42 mg TNR blocked cue-elicited drop in heart rate and arterial pressure. Naltrexone reduced cue-elicited withdrawal symptoms but not urges to smoke or deprivation-induced withdrawal prior to cue exposure.
