- In conclusion, results of the present study suggest that abuse liability of nicotine lozenges is low. Low abuse liability of the novel nicotine lozenges is in accordance with current knowledge of consumer use patterns of other, already marketed nicotine replacement therapies, which suggest little abuse of these products once they are marketed. Dose-dependent craving reduction by the lozenges in adults (22–50 years) but not young adults (18–21 years) suggests efficacy of the lozenge for adults, and reinforces the need for further studies of nicotine delivery systems as a treatment for nicotine dependence in younger adults and adolescents
