Specific Populations and Other Topics (Continued)

Evidence of effectiveness of tobacco dependence interventions in specific populations

Population of SmokersReview of Evidence
Women

There is evidence that both men and women benefit from bupropion SR, NRT, and varenicline; evidence is mixed as to whether women show as great a benefit from NRT as do men.

Psychosocial interventions, including proactive phone counseling, individually-tailored follow-up, and advice to quit geared toward children's health are effective with women. There is some evidence that exercise is effective for women; however, these findings are not consistent.
