Chewing Habitrol Nicotine Gum is a form of nicotine replacement therapy and an effective quit smoking aid. This nicotine gum is designed to help you kick the smoking habit without the nasty tars, toxins and other chemicals in cigarette smoke. Habitrol Gums will help you to quit smoking and resist the urge to smoke by relieving the cravings and helping you to manage the withdrawal symptoms – anytime, anywhere. Plus, they have a great tasting mint flavor and are sugar-free.
If you find that you like to keep your mouth busy now that you are no longer smoking on a cigarette, you may like the nicotine gum for the chewing action.
The mint-flavored gum slowly releases nicotine over a 30-minute period and helps you to quit smoking comfortably by relieving the unpleasant symptoms linked with nicotine withdrawal symptoms and side effects such as headaches, anxiety and mood swings.
The strength of the NRT gum you use will depend on what works for you. Generally, it is recommended that if you are a highly dependent smoker and smoking more than 20 cigarettes per day, that you start on the 4mg gum. If you have tried to quit smoking using the 2mg gum, and have failed, then try again on the 4mg gum. Otherwise, if you smoke less than 20 cigarettes per day, it is recommended you use the 2mg nicotine gum.
Combination Therapy with Habitrol Nicotine Gum
If you are struggling to quit smoking and have previously relapsed on just one nicotine replacement product. Combination therapy could be beneficial. If you experience ‘break-through’ cravings or have difficulty controlling cravings using one form of NRT along – you may want to use a combination of a Habitrol Patch, along with either Habitrol Gum 2mg or Habitrol Lozenge 1mg. (It is not recommended to use either the Habitrol Gum 4mg or Habitrol Lozenge 2mg in combination with Habitrol Nicotine Patches).
If you are wearing a Habitrol Nicotine Patch and wish to use either the gum or the lozenge, it is recommended that you use between 4-12 pieces a day. But do not exceed 12 pieces per day.
You may want to gradually reduce the strength of the Habitrol Nicotine Patch over the suggested period, and also work to reduce the amount of the gum/lozenge you use each day, making sure you manage your cravings as necessary.
Please Note: All NRT products have a limit to the amount you should use in a day as an effective quit smoking aid. For the Habitrol nicotine gum, do not exceed 20 pieces a day on the 2mg, or 10 pieces a day on the 4mg.
