Primary aim: Will varenicline be better than placebo to get long-term users of NRT to stop?
Secondary aim: To assess in details some side effects of varenicline i.e. nausea and abnormal dreams.
100-200 long-term users of NRT will be enrolled in a placebo, controlled, randomized trial with varenicline or placebo for 12 weeks to stop the use of NRT.
Assessments consist of carbon monoxide in expired air, p-cotinine, body-weight, questions about craving, nausea and dreams. Primary result is percent not using NRT and not smoking at 12 weeks (point prevalence last 7 days) and secondary result is not smoking and not using NRT at 12 months. Secondary aims, is a more detailed assessment of nausea and dreams; well-known side effects of varenicline and secondary results are a qualitative description of nausea and dreams.
