Do you have Bulimia Nervosa? are you female aged 18-60 years. - 10/04/18

 

We are looking for female patients with bulimia nervosa who would be interested in trying a new treatment.

We are conducting a research study at this hospital to see if a nasal spray containing a well-known drug (naloxone hydrochloride) can help with the symptoms of bulimia nervosa.

If you would like more information in complete confidence and without obligation, please contact:  Carinna Vickers, Lead Research Nurse 07824 452211 [email protected]

Patients taking part in this study will be asked to use the nasal spray for 8 weeks and will need to visit the hospital 4 times for assessments to be made. The study will last up to 12 weeks.

Your GP will be kept informed. You will be given one of two possible treatments; naloxone hydrochloride nasal spray or placebo nasal spray.

A placebo contains no active drug. You will have an equal chance of being allocated to one of the two treatments which is decided by a computer.

“Whenever I have contacted SWEDA, I have always received a very quick response, and have felt completely safe to ask for help when I have needed it. There have been periods of time when I have not needed a lot of contact, and times when I have asked for frequent contact. Talking to the same person over a long period of time has meant I have had a consistent place to go for support, and this has been invaluable."
