I was just watching the ads on tv when one for a weight reduction product came up
Contrave. I noticed one of the ingredients was naltrexone hcl. This has been mentioned on here before for PD. Interesting. Supposed to stop cravings.
“Naltrexone , which blocks opioid receptors, is FDA-approved for the treatment of alcohol dependence and has shown benefit for pathological gambling. This makes it an ideal candidate to explore for the treatment of ICDs in PD. In addition, naltrexone has been shown to be safe and well-tolerated in PD patients”
and bupropion which is used for depression
“Bupropion (Aplenzin, Wellbutrin, Wellbutrin SR, Wellbutrin XL) is used to treat depression. Bupropion (Aplenzin, Wellbutrin XL) is also used to treat seasonal affective disorder (SAD; episodes of depression that occur at the same time each year [usually in the fall and winter but rarely may occur in the spring or summer months]). Bupropion (Zyban) is used to help people stop smoking. Bupropion is in a class of medications called antidepressants. It works by increasing certain types of activity in the brain.”
looks like an interesting product!
