Treatment of Nicotine Dependence and Acute Depression
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Conditions||major depressive disorder, nicotine dependence|
|Treatments||bupropion, nicotine patch, smoking cessation|
|Start date||June 2004|
|Trial size||30 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT00186446, GSK 103341|
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and feasibility of concurrent treatment of nicotine dependence (cigarette smoking) and acute depression. Participants who meet DSM-IV criteria for both nicotine dependence and acute major depression will be given pharmacological treatment for both disorders at the same time, along with a brief behavioral intervention for smoking cessation.
|Endpoint classification||safety/efficacy study|
|Intervention model||single group assignment|
We hope to learn whether or not it is safe to target both smoking cessation and acute depression concurrently, without adversely affecting treatment outcomes for either disorder.
