Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: NF (Naltrexone+Fluoxetine)
Naltrexone SR 32 mg and fluoxetine 60 mg
Drug: Naltrexone 32 mg and fluoxetine 60 mg
Two week titration followed by daily dosing of naltrexone SR 32 mg and fluoxetine 60 mg for 8 weeks. Response is assessed at after 8 weeks. Responders will continue on a daily dose of naltrexone SR 32 mg and fluoxetine 60 mg for an additional 6 weeks. Non-responders will have their daily dose adjusted to naltrexone SR 48 mg and fluoxetine 80 mg.
Active Comparator: Fluoxetine
Fluoxetine 60 mg
Drug: Fluoxetine 60 mg
Two week titration followed by daily dosing of fluoxetine 60 mg for 8 weeks. Response is assessed at after 8 weeks. Responders will continue on fluoxetine 60 mg for an additional 6 weeks. Non-responders will have naltrexone SR 32 mg added to their therapy.
Active Comparator: Naltrexone
Naltrexone SR 32 mg
Drug: Naltrexone SR 32 mg
Two week titration followed by daily dosing of naltrexone SR 32 mg for 8 weeks. Response is assessed at after 8 weeks. Responders will continue on naltrexone SR 32 mg for an additional 6 weeks. Non-responders will have fluoxetine 60 mg added to their therapy.
