Quit smoking: Try stop-smoking products

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Don't be afraid to use stop-smoking products to help you quit. Stop-smoking products are a legitimate way to handle withdrawal symptoms and tobacco cravings. Several types of nicotine-replacement products are available. Nicotine patches, gum and lozenges, are available over-the-counter. Nicotine nasal spray and the nicotine inhaler are available by prescription. In addition, two quit-smoking medications that don't contain nicotine are available by prescription. Talk to your health care provider about which stop-smoking products may be right for you.
