Nicotine Replacement

Nicotine is the chemical in cigarettes that causes addiction.

Delivering nicotine in a non-cigarette form such as:

patches, lozenges, gum, sprays, or inhalers,

Protects you from the damaging effect of cigarette smoke,

while reducing your craving.

These replacements do not require a prescription.

The best plan: use a combination of 2:

a patch daily and

gum or lozenges when you get a sudden craving.

Chantix

(verenicline)

This is prescription medicine that I will prescribe.

You take it by mouth, twice daily.

It reduces both:

Cravings

Withdrawal symptoms

Wellbutrin and Zyban

(Bupropion)

 This is also a prescription medicine that I prescribe.

It reduces your cravings to smoke.

Studies have shown that patients are often more successful on a combination of:

Nicotine replacement, and

Prescribed Medicine

Quitting Cigarette Smoking

heart attacks and

high blood pressure.

AND
