Thrive How to Take

Thrive (Nicotine) belongs to the family of medications known as Thrive (Nicotine) replacement therapies. It is used to help people over 18 years of age quit smoking.

When a person stops smoking, they go through withdrawal from Thrive (Nicotine) that can cause symptoms such as irritability, mood swings, restlessness, trouble concentrating, and increased appetite.

Thrive (Nicotine) helps reduce the symptoms of Thrive (Nicotine) withdrawal by replacing some of the Thrive (Nicotine) that the person no longer receives through cigarettes. Gradually, the dose is reduced until the person no longer craves Thrive (Nicotine), and they can stop using the medication.

Thrive (Nicotine) gum can also be used during smoke-free periods where smoking is not permitted or desired. You should not smoke and chew Thrive (Nicotine) gum at the same time. If you want to quit smoking completely, Thrive (Nicotine) works best when used with a comprehensive program to quit smoking.

Thrive (Nicotine) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Thrive (Nicotine) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Thrive (Nicotine) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Thrive (Nicotine) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking this medication, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Thrive (Nicotine) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give this medication to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take this medication if their doctor has not prescribed it.

We manage your refills and get in touch with your doctors for prescription renewals so that you always have the medication you need.

Thrive Dosage

Ask your doctor or pharmacist to determine your level of Thrive (Nicotine) dependence. They can teach you how to use the Thrive (Nicotine) gum effectively and give you tips on quitting smoking. Initial treatment should be based on your level of Thrive (Nicotine) dependence.

When you start to experience a cigarette craving, start chewing one piece of gum. Proper use of the gum is important to receiving the greatest benefit from it. Do not chew the gum as you would ordinary chewing gum. Bite on the gum once or twice and then leave it between your cheek and gum. Repeat after 1 minute. Continue this for 30 minutes, then discard the gum. Repeat this process for every cigarette craving.

It is recommended that you do not drink fluids while chewing the gum since this may affect the ability of the medication to deliver Thrive (Nicotine). The dosage is individualized and depends on how much Thrive (Nicotine) is needed to relieve Thrive (Nicotine) withdrawal symptoms.

For the first 2 to 4 weeks of treatment, a higher dose (10 to 12 pieces of gum per day) is used, and then the dose is gradually reduced over the next 4 to 12 weeks. When you reach only 1 or 2 pieces per day, then the gum can be stopped. The maximum dose is 20 pieces per day. Most people need a 3 month treatment, although some may need treatment for up to 6 months. You should not use the Thrive (Nicotine) gum for more than 6 months without consulting with your doctor.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important that Thrive (Nicotine) be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor.

Store Thrive (Nicotine) at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children and pets.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

Thrive Precautions

There may be an interaction between Thrive (Nicotine) chewing gum and any of the following:

If you are taking any of these medications, speak with your doctor or pharmacist. Depending on your specific circumstances, your doctor may want you to:

  • stop taking one of the medications,

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Thrive (Nicotine). Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking.

Since caffeine, alcohol, the Thrive (Nicotine) from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.
