The TGA has made an interim decision to make nicotine for use in e-cigarettes available in Australia on prescription.

Australians will only be able to import the product if they have a valid script, closing an existing loophole.

Anthony Tassone, Victorian branch president of the Pharmacy Guild, told the AJP that, “The Guild supports the interim decision to re-schedule nicotine and supports the decision to include nicotine, when included as a Schedule 4 medicines”.

“Ideally, the products should be registered on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods,” he said.
