Nicotine Patch May Double Your Chances Of Quitting Smoking

The nicotine patch is available over-the-counter to anyone 18 years or older without a prescription. The nicotine patch helps with the feelings of nicotine withdrawal by delivering a steady amount of nicotine to the body through the skin. The nicotine patch is sold in varying strengths as an 8-week smoking cessation treatment. Nicotine doses are gradually lowered as the treatment progresses. The nicotine patch may not be the best choice for individuals with skin problems or allergies to adhesive tape. Habitrol® and Nicoderm CQ® are two major brands that are offered and are FDA approved.
