Medication Prescribing Information
NOTE: While some medications can be effective alone, both pharmacotherapy and counseling can produce higher abstinence rates. (Fiore, MC, Bailey WC, Cohen, SJ, et al. Treating Tobacco Use and Dependence. Clinical Practice Guidelines. Rockville MD: US Department of Health and Human Services. Public Health Service, June 2000; 71.) Group and individual behavioral counseling is available through TCI and the Quit Line.
