Frequently asked questions on important topics / What medicine should I choose to quit smoking?

All of the medicines work well in helping a person to quit smoking. If you associate smoking with having something in your mouth, you may do better with nicotine gum. The patch delivers nicotine continuously for 16 hours while you are awake, or 24 hours if you use a patch that’s worn all night. If you haven’t had success with other nicotine products, the nasal spray or inhaler may help you. A non-nicotine prescription medicine such as bupropion hydrochloride or varenicline can help most people and may be used with nicotine medicines. Talk to your doctor about which medicine might work best for you.  Following are few options you can use:

Nicotine Replacement Medicines

Nicotine Chewing Gum or Lozenges

Nicotine Patch

Nicotine Spray

Nicotine Inhaler
