Smoking Cessation Medications
Our smoking cessation medications include nicotine chewing pieces (gum), nicotine patches, nicotine inhalers, oral sprays, nicotine lozenges, bupropion, and varenicline. Research shows that these medications can increase your chance of success when used as directed and combined with support groups or counselling.
We also follow different methods such as host group counselling and talk sessions that can often give a better result than using them alone.
Stop smoking. Breathe easy.
