Been trying to quit smoking for 2 years with the combination therapy. Unfortunately i live with people who smoke (care facility) so i find slips are all too common.
The cost of Nicotine Replacement Therapy like the Quick Mist, Nicoderm Patches should be much cheaper and the provincial government should cover the cost of these medications. Many people can not take the medication that is covered by both the Government and insurance companies. One month of patches costed me almost $170.00. Obviously I will pay the money for better health but sadly it is not a option for many people especially those who have high housing costs, pay for child care, don’t qualify for private health coverage etc.
It would be great if Nicorette was able to offer these products at a reduced cost for people in financial and medical need, partnerships with Ontario Community Health Centers, especially ones that work with the most vulnerable of our society.
These products work.
I live in long term care and the pharmacy they use is the only place that we are allowed to get them from. The cost of the patches from them is $80 (approximately) for x7) when shoppers have them for $30 - $40. Having a partnership with the long term care sector would be a great idea given many homes are smoke free now and many residents come in needing NRT.
Thank you for reading.
Yes, I'd recommend this product
