Pharmacological treatments

Role of pharmacotherapy in treatment of PG appears to show promise and is clinically active :

Opioid antagonists

e.g., naltrexone (reduces cravings)

Selective seretonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRIs)

e.g., fluoxetine (reduces obsessive pre-occupation and anxiety/depression)

Mood stabilisers

e.g., amytriptyline (reduces depression, mania etc. for those with concurrent mood disorders

Other drugs have also been used (e.g. Ritalin) but all of these are case study reports
