The Clinical Takeaway: Vaping and Tobacco Addiction

The Clinical Takeaway: Vaping and Tobacco Addiction


– E-cigarettes have been shown to benefit and help smokers who have failed the usual forms of therapy
– Behavioural support plus adequate and appropriate nicotine replacement therapy alone, or in combination with pharmacotherapy, can be effective
– Combination nicotine replacement therapy (patch and oral form) and using the oral, more rapid acting form during vulnerable periods of the day is an important tool
– From October 2021, e-cigarettes can only be prescribed by accredited doctors. This is a world first initiative of the RACGP and the TGA
