THERAPEUTIC USES OF DEPENDENCE CAUSING AGENTS: THE PAST AND THE PRESENT

YASHASVI SUVARNA, M. C. SHIVAMURTHY.

Abstract
A lot is known about substance dependence and abuse, but very few studies have explored the use of potential dependence causing drugs as therapeutic agents. This could be attributed to stringent regulations and restricted availability of these agents. But, in the last decade, resurgence in the use of these agents as research tools has been observed. This review focuses on both the past and present therapeutic uses of dependence causing agents like amphetamine, nicotine and opioids to name a few.

Key words: Drug dependence, Therapeutic uses, Amphetamine, Nicotine
