The nicotine in tobacco leads to concrete physical dependence. This can cause obnoxious withdrawal symptoms when a person tries to quit. Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) delivers nicotine in the form of gum, patches, sprays, inhalers, or lozenges but not the other harmful chemicals in tobacco. NRT can help reduce some of the physical withdrawal symptoms so that the focus is on the psychological aspects of quitting. As per the study, using NRT can nearly double the chances of quitting smoking. It has not been studied as much for quitting smokeless tobacco, but the NRT lozenges may help. Moreover, the growing popularity of the nicotine patches across the world is driving the global nicotine patches market.
Patches come in various potency and are manufactured by several companies. There are two main types of patches that can be distinguished from one another based on their nicotine release profile. 24-hour patches come in 21mg, 14mg, and 7mg, and 16-hour patches come in 25mg, 15mg, and 10mg. Moreover, 24-hour patches are recommended for those who smoke within 30 minutes after waking up and/or who wake at night to smoke. Whereas, 16-hour patches are recommended for those who only smoke after 30 minutes of waking up. However, 16-hour patches need to be taken off before bedtime and reapplied the following morning. In both types, it is very effective in decreasing the nicotine cravings and helping the smoking quitters, which is propelling the global nicotine patches market.
