Home > Comparing Stop-Smoking Medicines
Several medicines can help you stop smoking. You can take medicine to reduce your craving for nicotine. You also can use nicotine replacement products to reduce cravings and give you smaller and smaller amounts of nicotine.
Your doctor can help you decide which medicine-or combination of medicines-will work best for you. Most people find that it helps to use more than one at the same time. If you have health problems or are pregnant, you may not be able to use some of these medicines.
