Habitrol Patches Step 2 14mg 7sTell me more about this product
Habitrol Patch helps you to give up smoking by relieving the desire to smoke, as well as some of the unpleasant effects, which smokers experience when they stop smoking.
How Habitrol Patch works
Smokers have both a physical reliance on nicotine (i.e. the body becomes dependent on nicotine) and a psychological reliance on the smoking habit.
When you give up smoking, your body will miss the effects of nicotine and you will miss the habit of smoking.
Habitrol Patch helps you to tackle these two sides of the problem separately, instead of all at once
It is your body's dependence on nicotine, which causes withdrawal symptoms when you suddenly stop smoking. Nicotine is an addictive substance. Symptoms may include irritability, restlessness, depression, weight gain, and craving for cigarettes.
Habitrol Patch is intended to ease such withdrawal symptoms by providing your body with nicotine. This leaves your mind free to concentrate on overcoming your psychological desire to smoke.
Habitrol patch has been designed to slowly allow nicotine to be absorbed through your skin. The amount of nicotine in the Habitrol Patch is sufficient to help overcome the withdrawal symptoms but is lower than the amount of nicotine which you get from smoking. Therefore, overcoming your reliance on the nicotine in Habitrol Patch is much easier than overcoming your dependence on the nicotine you get from smoking.
Habitrol Patch is intended to help you to give up smoking, but you will only be successful in becoming a non-smoker if you are determined to quit.
Which Strength of Habitrol Patch to use and how long it should be used for There are three different strengths of Habitrol Patch. The patch is applied on waking (usually in the morning) and removed 24 hours later.
When you first start to use the Habitrol Patch you should use the highest strength. This is the 21mg Habitrol Patch. You should use this strength patch daily for 8 weeks.
Then you should reduce the amount of nicotine you are using by changing the strength of the patch you use. Use the next lower strength patch (14mg) applied daily for 2 weeks, then use the lowest strength patch (7mg) applied daily for two weeks.
This gradual reduction in the amount of nicotine will help your body get used to going without nicotine.
The patches each last 16 hours, are easy to use, and can be discreetly worn under clothing.
Do not give Habitrol Patch to anyone else to use as it is recommended that they seek professional advice prior to starting treatment.
