Naltrexone Packs a Punch for Women Smokers Who Wish to Quit

Novel academic endeavors targeted to find avenues that assist in puffing out the smoking habit, has made a successful finding//. An opiate blocker used in combination with a nicotine patch and counseling might be a productive way to help women quit smoking.

The medication in question, naltrexone, is a well known drug in the market in circulation for over 3 decades, for the treatment of alcohol and heroin dependence. The drug is known to offset weight gain, which is a common occurrence with people who quit smoking.

The study established that patients who had taken the drug gained only one pound whereas those who did not, gained about 4 pounds in the first month of the cessation programme. Researchers observed that Naltrexone is endowed with the potential to reduce cigarette and alcohol craving by inhibiting the signals that convey the sensation of pleasure in the brain. Women seemed to benefit more with this drug than men. Further, a two-month programme that draws on the combined benefit of naltrexone, nicotine patches and counseling is known to offer a 50 percent chance of success at least during the period of the program.

The flip side to this finding shows that, success rates were inconsistent just six months after treatment. Further research on this subject is required to evolve better ways to assist people in completely giving up the habit.
