ABSTRACT Introduction: Tobacco continues to be a leading cause of preventable morbidity and mortality in the world. First-line pharmacotherapies for the treatment of tobacco use disorder include nicotine replacement therapy, bupropion sustained-release (SR), and varenicline. We provide an overview of current evidence on the safety of first-line pharmacotherapies for the treatment of tobacco use disorder. Areas covered: Randomized clinical trials published in English up to July 2015 were… Expand
A systematic review of possible serious adverse health effects of nicotine replacement therapy
TLDR
Limited evidence indicated a lack of effect between NRT exposure and SAHEs for CVD and various reproduction/developmental endpoints and the evidence was inadequate to demonstrate any association with NRT use. Expand
In Reply: Changing the Culture of Tobacco Dependence Treatment Among Not Only Patients, But Also Prescribers.

Step Care treatment for smoking cessation

No statistically significant difference was observed in prolonged smoking abstinence between the Step Care and Recycle condition, and additional research is needed to explore whether a stepped care intervention increases long-term smoking abstinence rates compared with repeating the same intervention. Expand
Release Kinetics of Nicotine Loaded onto Mesoporous Silicate Materials for Use in Nicotine Replacement Therapy.
TLDR
In this work, loading of nicotine onto mesoporous silicate materials and its release into a phosphate buffer solution at 37°C were investigated and a slight increase in loading capacity with increasing pore size was observed. Expand

Adverse Effects and Tolerability of Medications for the Treatment of Tobacco Use and Dependence
TLDR
The benefit: risk ratio is strongly in favour of pharmacotherapy for tobacco dependence treatment in virtually all smokers who are motivated to quit, and the risks of continued tobacco use and the benefits of treatment are strong. Expand
Emerging drugs for the treatment of tobacco dependence: 2014 update
TLDR
Current evidence suggests that the two most effective pharmacotherapies to treat tobacco dependence are varenicline and combination nicotine replacement therapy, both of which demonstrate mixed rates of success in achieving long-term abstinence from smoking. Expand
Pharmacological interventions for smoking cessation: an overview and network meta-analysis.
TLDR
The outcome for benefit is continuous or prolonged abstinence at least six months from the start of treatment, and the outcome for harms is the incidence of serious adverse events associated with each of the treatments. Expand
Bupropion sustained release for treatment of tobacco dependence.
TLDR
The clinical characteristics of patients at higher risk for adverse effects when bupropion SR is prescribed for treatment of tobacco use and dependence are delineated and the risk of serious adverse effects associated with buPropion SR can be reduced by careful selection of patients. Expand
Efficacy and tolerability of pharmacotherapy for smoking cessation in adults with serious mental illness: a systematic review and network meta-analysis.
TLDR
The limited evidence available to date suggests that bupropion and varenicline are effective and tolerable for smoking cessation in adults with serious mental illnesses. Expand

Some antidepressants (bupropion and nortriptyline) can aid smoking cessation, but it is not clear whether these effects are specific for individual drugs, or a class effect. Expand
Varenicline for smoking cessation in bipolar disorder: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study.
TLDR
Varenicline shows efficacy for initiating smoking cessation in bipolar patients, but medication trials of longer duration are warranted for maintaining abstinence. Expand

Evidence for benefit from nicotine replacement therapy in hospital patients is inconclusive, although the results of a trial reported in this issue of Thorax give cause for optimism and shouldExpand
Interventions for smoking cessation and reduction in individuals with schizophrenia.

TLDR
Nicotine patches are an effective aid to tobacco dependence treatment, however, success rates vary greatly across research studies and may be influenced highly by the nature and intensity of adjuvant smoking cessation counseling. Expand
