Rationale/objectivesThis study examined the effects of propranolol vs. placebo, administered immediately after a “retrieval” session of cocaine cue exposure (CCE), on craving and physiological responses occurring 24 h later during a subsequent “test” session of CCE. It was hypothesized that compared to placebo-treated cocaine-dependent (CD) individuals, propranolol-treated CD individuals would evidence attenuated craving and physiological reactivity during the test session. Secondarily, it was… Expand

Figures, Tables, and Topics from this paper

Effects of Prereactivation Propranolol on Cocaine Craving Elicited by Imagery Script/Cue Sets in Opioid-dependent Polydrug Users: A Randomized Study
TLDR
The results do not support the use of propranolol for cue-induced cocaine craving in opioid-maintained patients. Expand
Detrimental Effects of a Retrieval-Extinction Procedure on Nicotine Seeking, but Not Cocaine Seeking
TLDR
For nicotine seeking, the retrieval group exhibited resistance to extinction, an effect that persisted on the spontaneous recovery test, and indicates that retrieval-extinction procedures can be detrimental to nicotine seeking. Expand
The Efficacy of Lidocaine in Disrupting Cocaine Cue-Induced Memory Reconsolidation.
TLDR
The administration of lidocaine during craving induction (lidocaine/craving) did not decrease cue-induced craving during craving reactivation one week later or craving and cocaine use over the 4-week follow-up period compared to the saline/Craving group. Expand
Effect of Selective Inhibition of Reactivated Nicotine-Associated Memories With Propranolol on Nicotine Craving
TLDR
In rat relapse models, propranolol injections administered immediately after nicotine UCS-induced memory retrieval inhibited subsequent nicotine CPP and operant nicotine seeking after short or prolonged abstinence, and in rats, preference and craving ratings for newly learned and preexisting real-life nicotine-associated CS among people who smoke were low. Expand
Does craving for cocaine mediate cocaine use? Analysis of a randomized controlled pilot trial of memory-focused cognitive therapy
Cocaine use disorder (CUD) is a debilitating psychopathology, with no recommended medication therapy or specific psychological intervention. Memory-focused cognitive therapy (MFCT) is a novelExpand
Reactivating addiction-related memories under propranolol to reduce craving: A pilot randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
Drug-related memory reactivation under propranolol can subsequently reduce craving among substance-dependent individuals, and this study highlights the feasibility and need for more comprehensive trials of this treatment approach. Expand
Blockade of β-Adrenergic Receptors by Propranolol Disrupts Reconsolidation of Drug Memory and Attenuates Heroin Seeking
TLDR
It is suggested that propranolol can interfere with reconsolidation of heroin memory and reduce subsequent drug seeking, making it an attractive therapeutic candidate for the treatment of opioid addiction and relapse prevention. Expand
Effect of a Brief Memory Updating Intervention on Smoking Behavior: A Randomized Clinical Trial
TLDR
Retrieval-extinction training substantially attenuated craving to both familiar and novel smoking cues and reduced the number of cigarettes smoked per day by participants 1 month after treatment relative to extinction training alone. Expand
Garcinol Blocks the Reconsolidation of Multiple Cocaine-Paired Cues after a Single Cocaine-Reactivation Session
TLDR
A novel unconditioned-stimulus (US) reactivation paradigm is used to interfere with the ability of multiple cues to drive drug-seeking behavior after just one reactivation and treatment session to demonstrate that a US-reactivation paradigm may be preferable to traditional CS-re activation paradigms for treating disorders that involve multiple CS–US associations and support investigations of garcinol as a therapeutic pharmacological agent. Expand
The Effect of Midazolam and Propranolol on Fear Memory Reconsolidation in Ethanol-Withdrawn Rats: Influence of D-Cycloserine
TLDR
The resistance to MDZ’s disruptive effect on fear memory reconsolidation may be, at least in part, associated with changes in the GABAA-R composition induced by chronic ethanol administration/withdrawal. Expand

Post-retrieval beta-adrenergic receptor blockade: effects on extinction and reconsolidation of cocaine-cue memories.
TLDR
Daily post-retrieval systemic injections of propranolol decrease the conditioned preference by interfering with reconsolidation of the memory for the association between the drug-paired side and the reinforcing effects of the drug, rather than facilitating new extinction learning. Expand
Disruption of Long-Term Alcohol-Related Memory Reconsolidation: Role of β-Adrenoceptors and NMDA Receptors
TLDR
The data indicate that reconsolidation of alcohol-related memories can be disrupted after a long post-training interval and that particularly β-adrenergic receptors may represent novel targets for pharmacotherapy of alcoholism, in combination with cue-exposure therapies. Expand
Post-retrieval propranolol treatment does not modulate reconsolidation or extinction of ethanol-induced conditioned place preference
TLDR
The data suggest that the β-adrenergic receptor does not modulate the associative processes underlying ethanol CPP, and that post-retrieval administration of PRO did not interfere with extinction of CPP in mice. Expand
Reconsolidation of a morphine place preference: Impact of the strength and age of memory on disruption by propranolol and midazolam
Reactivation of memories may render them labile and subject to disruption by amnestic drugs thus reducing their impact on future behavior, but whether it is possible with well-established memories isExpand
Acute and chronic effects of propranolol on extinction of rewarded running in the rat
TLDR
Results are consistent with previous findings in the Skinner box that propranolol has an acute disinhibitory effect on nonrewarded responses and a long-term inhibitory one, and these effects have different dose-response relationships. Expand
Central but not peripheral beta-adrenergic antagonism blocks reconsolidation for a morphine place preference
TLDR
The results suggest that beta-blockers may have potential for attenuating the impact of cue-induced craving which is a major cause of relapse in detoxified addicts. Expand
Effects of β-adrenergic receptor blockade on drug-related memory reconsolidation in abstinent heroin addicts.
TLDR
Oral administration of propranolol before reactivating of the word list impaired reconsolidation of drug-related positive and negative but not neutral words in abstinent heroin addicts, and these impairments critically depended on reactivation of theword list. Expand
The effect of propranolol dose and novelty of the reactivation procedure on the reconsolidation of a morphine place preference
TLDR
The view that for memory to return to a labile state, the situation that evokes reactivation needs to be novel in some way is supported, if the reactivation situation is familiar, reconsolidation may not occur. Expand
Craving predicts use during treatment for methamphetamine dependence: a prospective, repeated-measures, within-subject analysis.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that, while craving alone may be neither necessary nor sufficient to explain substance addiction, when measured prospectively in a carefully-designed study craving emerges as a salient predictive factor in continued methamphetamine use for patients in treatment for methamphetamine dependence. Expand
The Effect of Propranolol and Midazolam on the Reconsolidation of a Morphine Place Preference in Chronically Treated Rats
TLDR
Propranolol and midazolam disrupted reconsolidation in morphine-naïve rats, but failed to disrupt the CPP when rats were trained under chronic morphine treatment, even if they were recovered from chronic opiate exposure before reactivation. Expand
