You may have tried to quit smoking before, only to relapse. If this sounds familiar, you're not alone.Many smokers try to stop a few times before successfully quitting. Combination therapy could be a good option for smokers with a high nicotine dependency or those who already have attempted to quit unsuccessfully before.
Nicotinell TTS Patches provide a stable level of nicotine over 24 hours, while the gum can help take the edge off the urgent need to smoke. But remember, you shouldn't use combinations long-term, and you should speak to your doctor, nurse or pharmacist before starting this type of treatment.
