The aim of this review is to determine clonidine's effectiveness in helping smokers to quit.

Conclusions: Based on a small number of trials, in which there are potential sources of bias, clonidine is effective in promoting smoking cessation. Prominent side-effects limit the usefulness of clonidine for smoking cessation.
