A little pharmaceutical hackingWhen you read that headline, you may think this or that. But I figured out that nicotine patches are more expensive than necessary.
You can start out at 21 mg nicotine per 24 hours, and then go down to 14 and 7 - that's what the producer allows.
The interesting thing is that the patches cost the same, regardless of how much nicotine they provide. So, I was thinking the other day and figured out that stepping down around 5 mg of nicotine every 2, 4 or 8 weeks is the right way to go.
And that's easy to do. I'm down on 10 mg per 24 hours now, using a 21 mg patch cut in two. This effectively makes the patches cheaper to use the less nicotine I need.
What a pair of scissors can do.
