What are some of the withdrawal symptoms when quitting smoking and what can be done to prevent them?
Smoking People who quit using tobacco products may experience a variety of withdrawal symptoms,
including the following:
- A craving for tobacco
- Decreased blood pressure and heart rate
- Difficulty sleeping, restlessness
- Increased appetite and weight gain
- Increased skin temperature
- Irritability, difficulty concentrating
- Upset stomach
While these symptoms tend to go away over time, using nicotine replacement products - such
as patches, lozenges, and gum - can help to reduce withdrawal symptoms. The prescription
medication Zyban SR® (bupropion) can help
reduce withdrawal symptoms and lessen the urge to smoke.
