LAAM was  approved because it was developed by the National Institute on Drug 
Abuse  (NIDA).  It took them about twenty years.  At one point all of their  
data was disallowed by the FDA because the contract research organization they 
 were using was found to be guilty of some FDA submission offense so all of  
that company's data was disallowed including that for LAAM.  I haven't 
probably gotten that exactly right but,  close enough.  Once LAAM was approved after 
some years they found that it  had associated cardiac fatalities and the 
manufacturer discontinued it as it  was not exactly a money maker. I am not sure 
whether anyone on LAAM was ever  treated with ibogaine.  My guess would be not 
unless they were first  transferred to a short acting narcotic, a common 
practice on St. Kitts to my  understanding. What is interesting is that LAAM is an 
example of a schedule I  drug that was rescheduled.  This is most likely what 
would happen with  ibogaine if it is ever moved through the FDA approval 
process. The FDA  approved an ibogaine study at the University of Miami in 1993 but 
the work was  abandoned when D. Mash opted to open St. Kitts rather than 
continue the  work.


Thanx Howard, I figured if anybody had any information on this it would be  
you. I was thinking that if anyone HAD been treated for addiction to LAMM the  
information gathered might be beneficial to those who were seeking help for  
methadone. I would imagine that LAMM would take more than just a flood dose.  
Maybe boosters for up to two weeks, or a follow up treatment in a week or two,  
but that's just a guess. Thanx again  Howard.       Randy
