Combination Nicotine Therapy for Quitting Smoking

Increase your chances of quitting for good with Combination Therapy

What is Combination Therapy?

Combination Therapy is a new method of quitting that combines the 24-hour support of NICODERM® with the extra craving relief of NICORETTE® to increase your chance of quitting for good.

Is Combination Therapy right for me?

If you've struggled to quit on your own, or with the help of a single NICODERM® or NICORETTE® product, Combination Therapy could help you stay on track throughout the day, and increase your chance of quitting for good.

NICODERM® and NICORETTE® are leaders in quitting smoking aids, and are the first products authorized for use together by Health Canada.

A day in the life using Combination Therapy

Apply a NICODERM® patch in the morning for steady, all-day support against withdrawal symptoms, and use your choice of NICORETTE® Gum, QuickMist or Lozenge to tackle your toughest cravings.
