Different people need different resources as they try to quit. The information and professional assistance available on their Web site can help to support both your immediate and long-term needs as you become, and remain, a nonsmoker. Smokefree.gov allows you to choose the help that best fits your needs. You can get immediate assistance in the form of: An online step-by-step cessation guide, local and state telephone quitlines, NCI’s national telephone quitline, NCI’s instant messaging service and publications, which may be downloaded, printed, or ordered.
Included in their Online Guide to Quitting is a valuable Medication Guide.
The Medication Guide was created to provide the public with a general understanding of the current medications used by smokers who are trying to quit.
Please note that this guide may not describe every product available. All of these medicines have been shown to be useful for helping smokers quit. There is no one best medicine for all smokers. Always read the instructions on the package carefully and talk with your doctor or pharmacist if you have questions.
Dosing information provided in descriptions of these products is intended only to illustrate typical use of these medications. Individual dosing for prescription medications must be determined by a physician. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a severe medical problem, talk with your doctor before starting any new medication.
The Web site was created by the Tobacco Control Research Branch of the National Cancer Institute.
