Many medications have yielded negligible results in studies: selegiline, badofen, ser- traline, topiramate, gabapentin, rivastigmine, risperidone, and ondansetron.(16) Recent evaluation of disulfiram, vigabatrin, and lobeline also has yielded inconsistent firdings.(17)
Lobeline and beta-amyrin palmitate from lobelia increase norepinephrine (NE) release and inhibit dopamine (DP) uptake.
Lobelia: There is evidence to suggest that the constituent called lobeline is of benefit.
No good evidence supports using anxiolyrics, silver acetate, Nicobrevin (a nicotinefree smoking cessation aid), lobeline, or naltrexone for smoking cessation.
Little is known about the nature of the AP chemoreceptors, but they are known to respond to a diverse range of naturally occurring poisons (or drugs) in the blood, including cardiac glycosides, apomorphine, morphine, and lobeline (Gaitonde et al., 1965; Miller and Leslie, 1994; Andrews and Horn, 2006).
Lobelia contains lobeline, a chemical cousin of nicotine, which helps reduce nicotine cravings.
