Smoking Pill Recieves Federal Approval

From weight loss to drug addictions, people are always looking for the “magic pill” that will fix all of their problems. Well, just recently, the Food and Drug Administration approved a brand new nicotine-free anti-smoking pill from Pfizer. The pill is one of the only two anti-smoking drugs that have made it past the Food and Drug Administration. The pill, called Varenicline, will be a twice a day tablet.

Dr. Steven Schroeder, a professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco said:

“It’s a welcome new addition. It’s like with cancer or heart disease or high blood pressure or diabetes: The more effective treatments you have, the better off patients are.”

The pill will work in two ways: it will cut the pleasure of smoking and by reducing the withdrawal symptoms.
