Habitrol can help you quit smoking by replacing the nicotine in cigarettes. The nicotine in tobacco is an important part of cigarette addiction. When you stop smoking, your nicotine levels drop quickly. This drop can cause withdrawal symptoms such as craving tobacco, nervousness, irritability, headache, weight gain, and difficulty concentrating. Stopping smoking is hard and your chance of success is best when you are ready and have made a commitment to quit. Nicotine replacement products are part of a total stop-smoking program that includes behavior change, counseling, and support. Smoking causes lung disease, cancer, and heart disease. Stopping smoking is one of the most important things you can do to improve your health and live longer.
How to Use Habitrol
If you are using the over-the-counter product, read all directions on the product package before using Habitrol. If your doctor has prescribed Habitrol, read the Patient Information Leaflet if provided by your pharmacist before you start using Habitrol and each time you get a refill. Make sure you understand how to apply a new patch and dispose of the used product. If you have any questions, consult your doctor or pharmacist. Start Habitrol on your quit (smoking) day. The patch should be applied to a clean, dry, non-hairy area on the trunk or upper arm. Check the manufacturer's instruction sheet for recommended areas to place the patch. If necessary, clip hair from the site before applying the patch. Do not shave the area. Remove the patch from the package, peel off the protective strip, and immediately apply the patch to the skin. Press firmly for 10 to 20 seconds to make sure the patch stays in place. Be sure the edges are held firmly to the skin. Wash your hands with plain water after applying the patch. Do not use soap. The best dose for you is the dose that decreases the urge to smoke without side effects from too much nicotine. If your doctor has prescribed Habitrol, follow your doctor's orders carefully. Your dose will need to be adjusted to your needs, including smoking history and medical condition. Different brands of nicotine patches have different amounts of nicotine and different instructions for how long to leave the patch on the skin (e.g., for 24 hours or only while awake). Consult your doctor or pharmacist about which brand of patch to use. If you wake up craving cigarettes, the 24-hour patch may be best. If the patch causes vivid dreams or interferes with sleep, you may need to wear the patch only while awake (16 hours each day). Do not apply the patch to red/cut/irritated skin or over other skin products (e.g., makeup, lotions, powders). Do not use the patch if the individual pouch is open or damaged or if the patch is cut, torn, or damaged. Apply the patch to a different area on your body each time to avoid irritation. Wait at least a week before using the same application site. Apply a new patch if your patch falls off. Do not wear a patch for more than 24 hours. Do not wear more than 1 patch at a time. After removing each patch, fold it in half so it sticks to itself, and discard in the trash away from children and pets. Use a new patch each day, applying it at the same time each day to help you remember, usually when you wake up. After several weeks, you will gradually lower your dose (strength of patch) until you no longer need nicotine replacement. It is important to complete the treatment with Habitrol (8 to 10 weeks). If after the treatment period, you still feel the need to use Habitrol to prevent you from smoking, talk to your doctor. If you suddenly stop using Habitrol, you may have withdrawal symptoms (such as tobacco cravings, nervousness, irritability, headache). To help prevent withdrawal, your doctor may lower your dose slowly. Withdrawal is more likely if you have used nicotine for a long time or in high doses. Tell your doctor or pharmacist right away if you have withdrawal. Tell your doctor if you have not been able to quit smoking after using Habitrol for 4 weeks. Some smokers are unsuccessful the first time they try to quit. You may need to stop using Habitrol and try again later. Many people who cannot quit the first time are successful the next time.
Before using Habitrol, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to nicotine; or to adhesive tape; or if you have any other allergies. Habitrol may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Habitrol, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,blood vessel disease (e.g., Raynaud's disease, stroke), diabetes, heart disease (e.g., chest pain, heart attack, irregular heartbeat), high blood pressure, liver disease, kidney disease, esophagus problems (such as esophagitis), stomach/intestinal sores (peptic ulcers), certain adrenal problem (pheochromocytoma), overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism), seizures, skin problems (e.g., eczema, contact dermatitis). Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). If you are going to have an MRI test, tell testing personnel that you are using this patch. Some patches may contain metals that can cause serious burns during an MRI. Ask your doctor whether you will need to remove your patch before the test and apply a new patch afterward, and how to do so properly. Strenuous exercise may raise your skin temperature and increase the amount of nicotine absorbed through the skin. Talk with your doctor about the effects of exercise on Habitrol. Avoid exposing the skin under the patch to direct heat sources such as heating pads, electric blankets, heat lamps, saunas, hot tubs, heated water beds, or prolonged direct sunlight while wearing your patch. Heat sources may cause more drug to be released into your body, increasing the chance of side effects. Nicotine and smoking may harm an unborn baby. If you are pregnant, try to stop smoking without using a nicotine replacement product if possible. During pregnancy, Habitrol should be used only when clearly needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. Nicotine from smoking and from Habitrol passes into breast milk and could have undesirable effects on a nursing infant. Smoking near an infant can also harm the infant. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
If you forget to change your patch on time, change it as soon as you remember. You can change your next patch 24 hours later or go back to your usual dosing schedule. Do not double the dose to catch up.
