Having reviewed the ‘alternative’ therapies available, I recently decided to try nicotine patches.
I smoked for 30 years from the age of 18 to 48 and gave up in 2000. I was a very light smoker, smoking about half an ounce of tobacco a day in roll-ups.
The 10 mg patch I’ve started using gives me about half as much nicotine as when I was smoking. I had a mild headache for the first couple of days I was wearing a patch, but otherwise no other symptoms.
To my surprise, it does seem to have helped a bit. I tend to get ‘restless legs’ in the evenings, which is a nuisance when all I want to do is sit and watch tv or read a book. That has not been troubling me since I started using the patches.
I’m thinking of also adding co enzyme Q10 to my meds. Has anyone found a benefit from this?
Also, I know a number of users of the forum use cannabis based meds. What benefit do they get from it? And which supplement do they take?
