As of October 1st 2021 nicotine vaping products require a prescription from an Authorised Australian Prescriber. myduke® pharmacy can assist.

Quit Smoking

myduke® pharmacy offers treatments to help reduce your nicotine intake. As a tool for smoking cessation, vapes can tackle your nicotine cravings and can assist in reducing your nicotine intake over time. A lot of vapers are either trying to quit smoking or have transitioned from cigarettes to e-cigarettes. The difference? Smoking delivers nicotine by burning tobacco leaves. Vaping delivers nicotine through vapourised liquid. The nicotine is still addictive, and by accessing the myduke® pharmacy service, the goal is to kick it entirely.

How vaping works

Vaping may give smokers the same feel of a cigarette. The whole process has been designed to mimic smoking, with stepped nicotine doses to help reduce your intake.

Vapes for quitting smoking

If you are a current smoker who is new to vaping, you’ll find there are a lot of products out there. There are different devices, coils, e-liquids, salts, and flavours. Pod vaping devices mimic the Mouth to Lung (MTL) action. Pod vapes are basic to use.

Refillable vapes are refillable with e-liquid, so you can swap flavours and adjust the amount of e-liquid.

myduke® pharmacy also offers other TGA approved treatments to help reduce your nicotine intake.

Vapes for heavy smokers

If you smoke a pack of cigarettes daily, you are considered a heavy smoker. Mouth to Lung devices can be adjusted with a stronger nicotine dose in your e-liquid (e.g. 9mg +), then gradually be reduced over time. If you need further information or assistance with moving from heavy smoking to vaping, please contact our expert team.
