The effects of tripelennamine on place preference conditioning in rats with pentazocine were investigated. Pentazocine at a dose of 2 mg/kg (IP) slightly, but not significantly, induced a place preference. Concurrent dosing of pentazocine (2 mg/kg, IP) and tripelennamine (2.5 mg/kg, SC) significantly and prominently produced a place preference, although administration of tripelennamine (2.5 mg/kg, SC) alone did not. Chronic infusion of a dopamine D1 receptor antagonist, SCH23390 (1.0 mg/kg/day… 

Differential modification of the rewarding effects of methamphetamine and cocaine by opioids and antihistamines

The results suggest that the mechanism of reinforcing effect of methamphetamine is different from that of cocaine, resembling rather those of opioids.

Super-additive interaction of the reinforcing effects of cocaine and H1-antihistamines in rhesus monkeys

The psychostimulant and rewarding effects of cocaine in histidine decarboxylase knockout mice do not support the hypothesis of an inhibitory function of histamine on reward

The data confirm previous results demonstrating that HDC KO mice show reduced exploratory behaviors, but contrary to the hypothesis that histamine plays an inhibitory role in reward, histamine-deficient mice were not more responsive to the psychostimulant effects of cocaine.

Dopamine-independent psychostimulant activity of a delta-agonist

The present findings suggest that stimulation of either D2-like receptors or δ-opioid receptors can enhance the hyperlocomotion induced by stimulation of D1 receptors by methamphetamine and SKF81297, and the mechanism that underlies the hyperactivity caused by SNC80 may be different from that whichUnderlies the effects of morphine.

Comparison of the Antinociceptive and Antirewarding Profiles of Novel Bifunctional Nociceptin Receptor/μ-Opioid Receptor Ligands: Implications for Therapeutic Applications

It is suggested that NOPr full-agonist activity is required to modulate opioid-induced reward, whereas a bifunctional Nopr/MOPr partial agonist profile may be suitable as a nonaddicting analgesic.

Involvement of μ‐ and δ‐opioid receptor function in the rewarding effect of (±)‐pentazocine

The findings suggest that the rewarding effects of (−)‐pentazocine may contribute to the abuse potential of (±)‐ pentazoine through μ‐ as well as δ‐opioid receptors, without robust activation of the mesolimbic dopaminergic system.

Comparison of the effects of eleven histamine H1-receptor antagonists on monoamine turnover in the mouse brain

The results suggest that (1) the degree of inhibition of the uptake of DA and 5-HT by histamine H1-receptor antagonists is considerably different, (2) most Ht-antagonists have little influence on NA uptake and some compounds enhance NA release, and (3) carbinoxamine, clemastine, triprolidine, and meclizine have comparatively weak influences on monoamine metabolism.

The results suggest that the effect of tripelennamine on pentazocine antinociception is additive; very little was through a mechanism of inhibition of pentazOCine metabolism.

Pentazocine-tripelennamine ("T's and Blues") substitution studies in morphine-dependent rodents.

It is concluded that the primary reason for the reported "street" abuse of the tripelennamine-pentazocine combinations is not related to any remarkable ability of the combination to effectively suppress the discomfort of heroin withdrawal.

The results show that histamine H1 antagonists can have pronounced rate-increasing effects on nonsuppressed and suppressed behavior, and that they can serve as reinforcers in monkeys.

The studies suggest that the antihistamine tripelennamine has abuse potential, and that in combination with pentazocine, the euphoric effects of the opioid are enhanced and its dysphoric properties attenuated.
