FDA has decided that some warnings and limitations stated on the labels of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) products are no longer necessary to make sure they are used safely and effectively to quit smoking.
The changes that FDA is allowing to these labels reflect the fact that although any nicotine-containing product is potentially addictive, decades of research and use have shown that NRT products sold OTC do not appear to have significant potential for abuse or dependence.
