Question special

Dr. Trivedi and Dr. Shoptaw, thank you very much for the opportunity to discuss your work. I believe combination pharmacotherapy can be a clever approach to a challenging disorder.

Speaking about combinations, what is your experience with combining pharmacotherapy with psychosocial/behavioral therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy, contingency management, and motivational interviewing? Were any of the patients in the study involved in these therapies prior to the study? Have you considered a specific psychosocial intervention regimen in combination with bupropion and naltrexone?
