Guanfacine Clinical Trial for Smoking Cessation
Diseases and Conditions Researched
What is the purpose of this trial?
Adult daily smokers motivated to quit smoking will be randomized to extended-release guanfacine (6mg/day) or placebo and will enroll in an 8-week treatment period combining medication with brief behavioral support. The investigators hypothesize that the active dose of guanfacine compared to placebo will increase rates of prolonged smoking abstinence at the end of the 8-week treatment phase.
