With reference to the article published under the title "Pharmacologic agents for smoking cessation: A clinical review", we would like to add some information related to smoking cessation therapy among pregnant females. In that article, in the nicotine replacement therapy section, pregnancy has been considered as a contraindication to the use of transdermal patches, gum, lozenges, nasal sprays, and oral inhalers containing nicotine.
