Doctors groups say a lack of locally-approved nicotine-based vaping products remains a concern, but have welcomed the national medical watchdog's decision to make them prescription only. [...] But no liquid nicotine products are TGA-approved. Australian Medical Association president Dr Omar Khorshid said this remains a concern for GPs who were wary of prescribing e-cigarettes as a smoking cessation aid.

"I think it's one of the reasons why GPs haven't been prescribing: one is the lack of an approved product, and two, also a lack of decent quality evidence of the efficacy of e-cigarettes for smoking cessation," he said.
