The effects of acute cocaine administration on the pituitary adrenal axis in humans without a history of drug abuse are unknown. The authors studied 12 male volunteers twice in a double-blinded, placebo-controlled, randomized fashion. After intranasal administration of 2 mg/kg cocaine, cortisol levels were significantly higher than after placebo administration. The authors concluded that acute administration of cocaine to humans increases cortisol secretion.
