We determined if inhibition of the vesicular monoamine transporter (VMAT2) alters METH-induced changes in dopamine (DA) release, metabolism, and synthesis in vivo. Our results suggest that selective inhibition of VMAT2 produces a time-dependent decrease in DA release as a result of alterations in tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) activity, which may play a role in the ability of the VMAT2 inhibitor GZ-793A to decrease METH reward.
