Smoking Cessation

Do I need a prescription for smoking cessation treatment in Australia?

Your doctor may recommend a variety of treatment options including Nicotine Replacement Therapy such as a nicotine e-cigarette. From 1 October 2021, consumers require a prescription for all purchases of nicotine vaping products, such as nicotine e-cigarettes, nicotine pods and liquid nicotine. Please discuss with your doctor the best product for your circumstances. The provision of a prescription is always within the consulting doctor’s discretion and Doctors on Demand does not influence the professional discretion of our consulting doctors. To ensure you receive the right treatments and help on your smoking cessation journey, speak to a doctor.
