Abstract

The effects of naltrexone on both mood and cognition were examined in overweight male subjects. Subjects were randomly prescribed, in a double-blind fashion, either placebo or naltrexone for 8 weeks. The results of the study showed that a chronic administration of a high dose of naltrexone (300 mg/day) does not significantly change mood or cognitive functioning among overweight adult men.
