Liraglutide and Smoking Cessation Behavioral Counseling in Helping Smokers to Quit Smoking
This phase II trial studies how well liraglutide and smoking cessation behavioral counseling sessions work in helping smokers to quit smoking. Liraglutide belongs to a class of medications called glucagon‐like peptide‐1 (GLP‐1) receptor agonists. The body naturally produces GLP‐1, which helps regulate the appetite. Liraglutide works like GLP‐1. Smoking cessation behavioral counseling sessions are designed to enhance awareness of the harmful effects of smoking, assist in developing skills to quit smoking, emphasize the benefits of quitting, and help avoid relapse. Giving liraglutide together with smoking cessation behavioral counseling sessions may help to prevent weight gain during a smoker’s attempt to quit smoking and may help people stay smoke free.
