Each year, smoking causes over 480,000 deaths in the United States and over 7 million deaths worldwide. Unfortunately, even with the best treatments currently available, nearly 2 out of 3 smokers who quit will return to smoking within six months. Many relapses occur when smokers are exposed to people, settings, or other cues that remind them of smoking and produce strong urges to smoke.
Our researchers are studying whether a medication has the potential to affect smoking behavior by reducing the cravings that occur in response to smoking cues. This medication is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is widely used to treat high blood pressure and other related problems, but is not yet approved to treat smoking.
Participating in this study may contribute valuable information that can help those who want to quit smoking in the future. Further research on smoking treatments and join our compensated study today!
