Treating Tobacco Use and Dependence: 2008 Update
Evidence of effectiveness of tobacco dependence interventions in specific populations
|Population of Smokers||Review of Evidence|
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.
