  • Cytisine

    Cytisine became available in the UK in January 2024

    Consilient Health announced the availability of Cytisine from 22nd January 2024.

    The NCSCT have written a briefing to help practitioners prepare for helping their clients quit using cytisine. We will continue to develop resources as we gain more experience and expertise in the use of cytisine. We are also updating our online and virtual training content to support practitioners to prescribe/recommend cytisine.

    A recent Cytisine update from NICE regarding their smoking cessation guidelines is available here

    In addition to the Cytisine Briefing below, we have also included the Cytisine Summary of Product Characteristics (SPC) and an NCSCT Cytisine summary and dosing guide (improved for March 2024).

    Our colleagues from Greater Manchester have made an application to their Medicines Management Board to get cytisine on their ICB formulary. They have kindly allowed us to post it here as a resource: GMMMG cytisine application.
