Spanish government starts funding a second drug to help people quit smoking in 25 days

Spain's Ministry of Health has authorised funding for a second drug to help people quit smoking, with the active ingredient 'cytisinicline'. Marketed under the name Recigarum by the pharmaceutical company Adamed, the price for a pack of 100 tablets has been reduced this month from 111 euros to 71 euros. The general recommended dosage is one tablet every two hours at first, then one or two a day. One box is "sufficient for a full course of treatment" lasting 25 days, the drug's data sheet states.


24.50% of the adult population are current smokers. There are approximately 9.7 million current smokers in Spain.
