Which products are useful in quitting smoking and where are they available ?
Interested in any information provided on self experienced results on the use of any of these over the counter aids sold to help quit smoking! Name the product used, approximate cost, where you can purchase product and your RESULTS good and/or bad. I just want to get first hand information before wasting more money.

Hi Dr. Andrew, my 28th year old husband is a smoker and he wants to quit. I support him with this but he has this difficulty of quitting gradually from it. They say there is this patch which helps a smoker to stop craving to smoke a cigarette. Is it safe and effective? Is it expensive? Is it available here in the Philippines? How long will it take for him to use it and stop? Thank you doctor.. -Grace (Manila, Philippines)
I am a smoker who takes high blood pressure medicine, cholesterol lowering statin and anxiety medication. i would like to quit smoking so I ordered a product called TBX-FREE, which has a active ingredient of Laburnum Anagyroids 1X. I want to know if I can take with no interactions to my prescribed medications?
Okay, well basically, I want to quit smoking, I have a calendar, I ve tried for months, and it s not good. I don t have IBS, but it sure does show up when I smoke, otherwise my stomach is an iron belly, but not when I smoke. I ve been smoking for 10 years by the way, and I m 25, I started at 16 and it s been terrible ever since. I use it to get through tough loads of school work, etc., but I know I don t need it and I know that mentally I ll be sharper and get even better grades than I am now if I quit. I am trying to increase my academic potential, my mental potential, and I have a hunch that quitting smoking will help me greatly, which is why I m sending my query here. I don t want a hunch, I want to know. When I smoke, I know effects of heart rate increase, blood flow decrease, etc., but what about neurons? I feel shaky and nervous when I smoke, it affects my social life, how do cigarettes affect neuron action potentials? I am in a radiography class, so you can imagine that shaky hands aren t good when trying to take a radiograph of my own hand for practice, etc. Ultimately my question is: Do cigarettes affect neuron action potentials, do they make them misfire (i.e. shaky hands, nervousness + anxiety)?
gastro problems caused primarily by alcohol abuse which resulted in jaundice and fatty liver condition. after some recovery from juandice I had started taking proxyvon in abuse and sort of a substitute for alcohol. what bad, and how bad adverse effects can this cause on the liver, stomach, etc,. my SGOT in a recent blood test came out high at 40 and SGPT at quite high of 87. what should i do?.. would a sudden stopping of this drug abuse cause problems, I m already having a bad stomach, and also am confused whether this stomach condition and weakness is caused by this abuse or could it just be because of a lack of proper food intake and the heat, coupled by exertion ?

Dear Advisor, I have recently stopped using cocaine after being a social (1-2 times per month) for a number of years. Will using Calpol Soothe & Care Saline Nasal Spray help to repair the persistent scabs I have at the base of my septum? Any advice on self treatment would be gratefully received. Regards.
