Study Shows Promise of Topiramate to Treat Cocaine Dependence

MD., MB.ChB., MPhil., chairman of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, is one of the first to establish a pharmacological treatment for cocaine addiction, for which there are currently no FDA-approved medications.
