FDA 101: Smoking Cessation Products


If you want to quit smoking, you’ll need willpower—and perhaps a product that’s intended to help you beat the addiction.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a variety of smoking cessation products. These include prescription medicines as well as over-the-counter (OTC) products such as skin patches, lozenges, and gum.

Smoking cessation products are regulated through FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, which ensures that the products are safe and effective and that their benefits outweigh any known associated risks.  Link to information in Spanish
