Quit Line expands Nicotine Replacement Therapy options

Starting October 1, the Montana Tobacco Quit Line offers a combination of Nicotine Replacement Therapy for callers who are ready to quit tobacco and may need extra help combating cravings during the initial quitting period. Two weeks of free short acting nicotine products - the nicotine gum and lozenge - are now available in addition to the four week patch therapy that is currently available through the Quit Line. Those who have a prescription to Buproprion, and receive it at a discounted rate through the Quit Line can also receive a free two-week supply of nicotine gum or lozenge.

When people call the Montana Tobacco Quit Line, the Quit Coaches will discuss these options and if combination therapy is appropriate. They will provide education to make sure the individual understands how to effectively use these short acting nicotine products in combination with other forms of medications.

The Montana Tobacco Quit Line is a free service for Montanans who are ready to work towards quitting any form of tobacco. Quit Coaches help the caller develop a personalized quit plan, discuss medication options, and provide ongoing support. This opportunity to receive combination therapy will continue as supplies last. The Quit Line is open seven days a week and can be reached by calling toll-free 800-QUIT-NOW (784-8669).
