Both drugs, when taken with opiates, can attenuate, prevent or even reverse tolerance to - as well as potentiate - the latter.

The above was the reason why I suggested looking into memantine and dextromethorphan. However, both of these drugs are also interesting in their own right. Especially memantine, which has stimulant and antidepressant properties, and may be able to attentuate tolerance also to stimulants, such as mehtylphenidate. It is also of some usefulness in Parkinson's disease, ADD/ADHD, OCD, the negative symptoms of schizophrenia, autism or Asperger's syndrome, cognitive dysfunction, glaucoma, and probably other conditions.
