  • If you use e-cigarette products or your child vapes, and you experience or notice any of the symptoms described above, seek medical care immediately.
  • Regardless of the ongoing investigation:
    • Youth and young adults should not use e-cigarette products; Visit the CATCH Global Foundation to learn about CATCH My Breath, a Free 5th-12th grade E-cigarette prevention program.
    • Women who are pregnant should not use e-cigarette products.
    • If you do use e-cigarette products, you should not buy street products (for example, e-cigarette products with THC or other cannabinoids).
    • You should not modify e-cigarette products or add any substances to these products that are not intended by the manufacturer.
    • Adult smokers who are attempting to quit tobacco products should use evidence-based treatments, including counseling and FDA-approved medications; see CDC: Ways to Quit Smoking. If you need help quitting tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, contact your doctor or other medical provider.
