Description

Twenty-four cocaine addicts who experienced withdrawal symptoms were studied for six weeks in a double-blind design. Half of the group received daily treatment with bromocriptine and the other half with placebo. Significant relief with bromocriptine was seen almost immediately and continued throughout the detoxification period. The authors speculate that the results are consistent with the "dopamine-depletion model" of cocaine withdrawal.
