Nicotine Replacement Therapy

Dr. Javier Perez-Fernandez, Critical Care and Pulmonary Medicine Physician with Baptist Hospital and West Kendall Baptist Hospital, points out there is replacement therapy and then there are commercial things that are on the market. “Replacement therapy stands for an adequate dosage of nicotine that is given to people to help them quit smoking.”

He highlights nicotine is a strong and potent drug that produces addiction, so the therapy takes places in a controlled environment with a thoughtful process.
