Some people find Nicotine cravings the hardest thing to deal with when quitting. If you are struggling from withdrawal symptoms and need that extra boost to stop you smoking, try out some of the licensed stop smoking medicines.

Different Stop Smoking Products

  • Patches are normally worn around the clock and can be stuck onto your arm or a discreet place underneath clothing. Patches will release nicotine directly into the bloodstream and work effectively for a 16 to 24 hour period.
  • Lozenges can be bought in mint or cherry flavour. Once one has been placed in the mouth it slowly dissolves and releases nicotine into the body.
  • Nicotine chewing gum - is available in two strengths and is dependent on how much you smoke. It is recommended that 4gm gum is the appropriate amount for people smoking approximately 20 cigarettes a day. Once the gum becomes either hot or strong, rest it on the inside of your cheek and remove after one hour.
  • Nasal spray is recommended for heavy smokers and is ideal for a swift and quick dose of nicotine through the nose. The nasal spray should be sprayed once into each nostril twice every hour. When used regularly it is the fastest of way of getting nicotine into the bloodstream in comparison to the chewing gum and lozenges.
  • Microtab is a small tablet you place underneath the tongue to dissolve. It is recommended that you avoid swallowing or chewing the Microtab as there can be unwanted side effects. Microtabs are suitable for those who are reducing the amount of cigarettes they are smoking each day.
  • Mouth spray is a liquid spray which tastes similar to strong mouthwash. For maximum effect one spray should be directed to the inside of your cheek or under your tongue.

Prescription Stop Smoking Products for 18 years and over

  • Champix is a prescription medication taken twice a day, once at breakfast and once with your evening meal for a 12 week period. Champix is not available if you are pregnant. If you have a pre-existing medical condition, you will need to discuss this with the advisor as not all treatments are suitable for everybody.
  • Zyban is a prescription medication which you take twice a day, once at breakfast and once with your evening meal for a 9 week period. It comes in tablet form and should be taken two weeks before your quit date to help with the overall nicotine cravings.

It is advised you speak to your doctor before taking either Champix or Zyban.
