Abstract

The therapeutic usefulness of lithium in decreasing the euphoria and other symptoms associated with manic behavior and the hypothesis of a common final mechanism for elevations in mood have led to speculation that lithium may block the euphoria induced by drugs of abuse. In this study, lithium alone was antieuphoric in drug-free opiate addicts and, further, did not block morphine-indu fed euphoria.
