Description of Habitrol
Habitrol is an anti-smoking aid with the generic name Nicotine. It is the primary ingredient in tobacco products. Habitrol is available in different forms such as gum and lozenge. People who want to get rid of their smoking habit can buy Habitrol online.
Indications & Dosage of Habitrol
Habitrol is used to help people quit smoking. It is only a part of smoking cessation program. Counseling, support, and behavior change are generally other parts of a total stop smoking program.
Nicotine addiction is the primary reason for people’s inability to quit smoking even if they want to. Nicotine replacement therapy is an effective way to get rid of smoking habit. The Nicotine in Habitrol acts as a replacement for Nicotine in cigarettes and stops the body’s craving it, thereby killing the urge to smoke. The medication also helps treat withdrawal symptoms of Nicotine such as irritability, nervousness, difficulty concentrating, weight gain, headache, or tobacco cravings.
Your doctor will give you specific instructions regarding the dosage. Place the Habitrol lozenge in your mouth and let it dissolve slowly in the mouth. Do not swallow or chew it. If you are using Habitrol gum, you need to place it in your mouth and chew it slowly until you experience a tingling sensation. Park the gum inside your mouth until the tingling sensation disappears. Remove the gum after 30 minutes or after you stop experiencing the tingling sensation.
