Effect Decrease
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 24 hours
Number of Subjects 32
Sex Male
Age Range 18-29, 30-44
Notes for this study:
Acute supplementation of 200mg modafinil is able to reduce symptoms of alcohol dependence in alcohol-dependent but abstaining persons, associated with a reduction in impulsivity as assessed by stop signal reaction time. The reduction in impulsivity was only significant for the persons with lower (worse) baseline self-control
