There are several FDA-approved products that can help, including over-the-counter nicotine patches, chewing gums, and lozenges, which can ease nicotine withdrawal symptoms.
Other FDA-approved methods, including the
prescription drugs bupropion (Wellbutrin SR, Zyban, and generic), nortriptyline (Pamelor and generic), and varenicline (Chantix) may also help.
But both bupropion and varenicline carry black-box warnings, the most serious caution, because of reports that they may increase suicidal thoughts, so should be used only under the careful supervision of your doctor.
The FDA don't give a F%#k about us. They are saying that none of us has quit smoking.
If you're holding out for FAVORABLE REGULATIONS by the FDA you're dreaming. You best exercise your rights while you still have them... STOCK UP!!!!
