Review your personalized treatment plan
If you choose to request prescription medication, a physician will review your medical and smoking history. If appropriate, they will recommend a 12-week treatment plan of either the Rx or the Rx together with the gum. Your doctor will follow up with any questions via secure messaging, phone or video call.
Be proactive; set your quit date
Once your treatment plan arrives, you'll pick a quit date 1-2 weeks in the future. This will allow you to mentally prepare for your quitting journey.
If medication is part of your treatment plan, you'll start taking it 1-2 weeks before your quit date. Learn more about bupropion, its potential benefits, and its potential side effects here.
Swap cigarettes for your treatment plan
When it’s time to quit, you’ll put down the cigarettes and use your nicotine gum. Doctors recommend using a piece of gum every 1-2 hours for the first six weeks to help fight withdrawal symptoms.
