A law requiring cigarette packages to bear graphic warning labels has been tied up in U.S. courts since 2012 – which is just as well, since that particular method is not only ineffective but counterproductive. Therefore, you’re better off advising your patients to resort to tried-and-true medical supplies like nicotine patches and nicotine gum to help with smoking cessation. Additionally, these products do not contain the tar or carbon monoxide of cigarette smoke, so they do not have present the same health risks as tobacco.


On the other hand, these stop smoking aids do deliver nicotine, which is the component that makes cigarettes addictive. Side effects of nicotine include headache, nausea, upset stomach, and dizziness.


We hardly need to tell you about this, but these products should be used with discretion – or not at all – by patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or who have heart disease, recent heart attack, or irregular heartbeat. Also, the product should be discontinued if the patient experiences skin redness that does not go away after 4 days, skin swelling, rash, irregular heartbeat or palpitations, vomiting, weakness, or rapid heartbeat.
