When bupropion, varenicline and nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) were compared with each other in adolescent and adult smokers, varenicline was ranked the best treatment for efficacy. Withdrawals from varenicline due to nausea ranged from 0.6% to 7.6%, but most cases were mild to moderate and subsided over time.
