Abstract: Since methamphetamine (MAP) has been frequently inhaled simultaneously with nicotine, i.e., cigarette smoking mixed with MAP, the modification by nicotine of the behavioral sensitization to MAP was evaluated in terms of ambulatory activity in mice. During the 5 repeated co-administrations of MAP (2 mg/kg s.c.) with nicotine (0.03, 0.1, 0.3 and 1 mg/kg s.c.) at 3 day intervals, nicotine dose-dependently inhibited the progressive enhancement of MAP-induced ambulatory stimulation. However, such pre-treatments did not modify the induction of ambulatory sensitization to MAP (2 mg/kg s.c.). In both the drug-naive and MAP-sensitized mice, nicotine reduced the ambulatory stimulant effect of MAP. These results suggest that, although nicotine reduces the expression of ambulatory stimulant effect of MAP, nicotine does not protect, but rather accelerate, the induction of psychotoxic effect of MAP.
