The purpose of this study is to attempt to identify possible dangerous interactions between cocaine and methylphenidate (MPD). Additional objectives are to determine: a) if MPD reduces th...
This phase II pilot study aims at evaluating the benefits and the risks of methylphenidate (Concerta®) for the treatment of cocaine/crack dependence in terms of cocaine/crack use reductio...
The purpose of this study is the use of Methylphenidate in the treatment of cocaine dependence and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) comorbidity.
This study will determine the influence of methylphenidate (e.g., Ritalin®) and duloxetine (Cymbalta®), alone and in combination, on the reinforcing, subjective and physiological effects...
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the feasibility of methylphenidate (MPD) as effective and safe in the outpatient treatment of cocaine-dependent patients with a comorbid DSM-IV ...
Depressive symptoms may contribute to cocaine use. However, tests of the relationship between depression and severity of cocaine use have produced mixed results, possibly due to heterogeneity in indiv...
Although behavioral treatment for cocaine use disorders is common, the use of cognitive neuroscience methods to investigate these treatments' mechanisms of action remains limited. Cognitive control (e...
Wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE) was applied to estimate the consumption of twelve narcotics within a Southwestern U.S. university campus. Seven consecutive 24-hour composite raw wastewater samples...

There is evidence that dopamine receptors D2 (DRD2) and D4 (DRD4) polymorphisms may influence substance use disorders (SUD) susceptibility both individually and through their influence in the formatio...
Disorders related or resulting from use of cocaine.
These disorders are related to both SCHIZOPHRENIA SPECTRUM AND RELATED DISORDERS and DEPRESSIVE DISORDERS in terms of symptomatology, family history, and genetics. (DSM-V) .
The purified, alkaloidal, extra-potent form of cocaine. It is smoked (free-based), injected intravenously, and orally ingested. Use of crack results in alterations in function of the cardiovascular system, the autonomic nervous system, the central nervous system, and the gastrointestinal system. The slang term "crack" was derived from the crackling sound made upon igniting of this form of cocaine for smoking.
A central nervous system stimulant used most commonly in the treatment of attention-deficit disorders in children and for narcolepsy. Its mechanisms appear to be similar to those of DEXTROAMPHETAMINE.
Disorders related to substance abuse, the side effects of a medication, toxin exposure, and ALCOHOL-RELATED DISORDERS.
