Abstract Rationale: Symptoms of withdrawal after daily marijuana smoking include increased ratings of irritability and depression. Similar mood symptoms are reported by cigarette smokers during nicotine abstinence. Objective: Given the successful use of sustained-release bupropion in treating nicotine dependence, this study investigated how maintenance on bupropion influenced symptoms of marijuana withdrawal compared to maintenance on placebo. Methods: Marijuana smokers (n=10) were maintained… Expand
Nefazodone decreases anxiety during marijuana withdrawal in humans
TLDR
Nefazodone decreased certain marijuana withdrawal symptoms, but participants still reported substantial discomfort, which provides further evidence of marijuana withdrawal, and highlights the need for more marijuana treatment options. Expand
Marijuana Withdrawal in Humans: Effects of Oral THC or Divalproex
TLDR
Two placebo-controlled, within-subject studies investigated the effects of a cannabinoid agonist, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and a mood stabilizer, divalproex, on symptoms of marijuana withdrawal, suggesting that oral THC, but not divalProex, may be useful in the treatment of marijuana dependence.

Bupropion Reduces Some of the Symptoms of Marihuana Withdrawal in Chronic Marihuana Users: A Pilot Study
TLDR
The results suggest that bupropion may be useful for alleviating marihuana withdrawal symptoms and be useful in subject retention during long-term cessation programs. Expand
Effects of baclofen and mirtazapine on a laboratory model of marijuana withdrawal and relapse
TLDR
Overall, this human laboratory study did not find evidence to suggest that either baclofen or mirtazapine showed promise for the potential treatment of marijuana dependence. Expand
Effects of Smoked Marijuana in Healthy and HIV+ Marijuana Smokers

  • Medicine
  • Journal of clinical pharmacology
  • 2002
TLDR
It is shown that daily marijuana smoking in healthy individuals produces dependence, as demonstrated by withdrawal symptoms such as increased irritability and depression and decreased food intake, as well as two antidepressant medications that showed promise as potential treatments for symptoms of marijuana withdrawal. Expand
Effects of THC and lofexidine in a human laboratory model of marijuana withdrawal and relapse
TLDR
The combination of lofexidine and THC produced the most robust improvements in sleep and decreased marijuana withdrawal, craving, and relapse in daily marijuana smokers relative to either medication alone. Expand
Guanfacine decreases symptoms of cannabis withdrawal in daily cannabis smokers
TLDR
A single daily administration of guanfacine at bedtime improved sleep and mood during cannabis withdrawal relative to placebo, and this positive signal supports further studies varying the guanFacine dose, formulation or frequency of administration, or combining it with other medications to increase the likelihood of having an impact on cannabis use. Expand
Do withdrawal-like symptoms mediate increased marijuana smoking in individuals treated with venlafaxine-XR?
TLDR
Individuals treated with VEN-XR had more severe withdrawal-like symptoms, which mediated their continued marijuana smoking, which negatively impact treatment outcomes in cannabis-dependent patients attempting to reduce or stop their use. Expand
Nicotine patch for cannabis withdrawal symptom relief: a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
The findings provide the first evidence that NP may be able to attenuate NA-related withdrawal symptoms in individuals with cannabis use disorder who are not heavy users of tobacco or nicotine. Expand
Lithium carbonate in the management of cannabis withdrawal in humans: an open-label study
TLDR
Evidence is provided for the potential clinical utility and safety of lithium in the management of cannabis withdrawal in treatment seeking adult humans and a randomised, placebo-controlled trial is recommended. Expand

The effect of bupropion on nicotine craving and withdrawal
TLDR
Bupropion significantly reduced abstinence-associated increases in rated depression, difficulty concentrating, and irritability, and attenuated a decrease in positive affect, and suggested that bupropion might have a positive effect on performance measures during the withdrawal period. Expand
Abstinence symptoms following smoked marijuana in humans
TLDR
This empirical demonstration of withdrawal from smoked marijuana may suggest that daily marijuana use may be maintained, at least in part, by the alleviation of abstinence symptoms. Expand
A controlled trial of sustained-release bupropion, a nicotine patch, or both for smoking cessation.
TLDR
Treatment with sustained-release bupropion alone or in combination with a nicotine patch resulted in significantly higher long-term rates of smoking cessation than use of either the nicotine patch alone or placebo. Expand
A comparison of sustained-release bupropion and placebo for smoking cessation.
TLDR
A sustained-release form of bupropion was effective for smoking cessation and was accompanied by reduced weight gain and minimal side effects. Expand
Abstinence symptoms following oral THC administration to humans
TLDR
Behavioral changes indicate that dependence develops following exposure to lower daily doses of THC than have been previously studied, suggesting that the alleviation of abstinence symptoms may contribute to the maintenance of daily marijuana use. Expand
Changes in aggressive behavior during withdrawal from long-term marijuana use
TLDR
The findings confirm previous reports of an abstinence syndrome associated with chronic marijuana use and suggest that aggressive behavior should be an additional component of this syndrome. Expand
Marijuana withdrawal among adults seeking treatment for marijuana dependence.
TLDR
This study provides further support for a cluster of withdrawal symptoms experienced following cessation of regular marijuana use, and the affective and behavioral symptoms reported were consistent with those observed in previous laboratory and interview studies. Expand
Non-Nicotine Pharmacotherapy for Smoking Cessation
TLDR
A stepped care approach for the selection of pharmacotherapies is presented in this review, hoping that ultimately medications can be matched with the individual characteristics of a smoker, and that smoking cessation could be facilitated in most smokers. Expand
Treating adult marijuana dependence: a test of the relapse prevention model.
TLDR
Men in the RP condition were more likely than men in the SSP condition to report reduced use without problems at 3-month follow-up, and posttreatment increases in problems associated with alcohol did not appear to relate to reduced marijuana use. Expand
Smoked marijuana effects on tobacco cigarette smoking behavior.
TLDR
Marijuana decreased the number of tobacco smoking bouts by delaying the initiation of tobacco cigarette smoking immediately after marijuana smoking, whereas decreases in inter-puff intervals were unrelated to the time of marijuana smoking. Expand
