General Information

Sano's Generic Transdermal Nicotine Patch, the equivalent of Novartis' Habitrol, has been approved for marketing.

Additional Information

Health risks from smoking cigarettes are widely recognized. Although most smokers say they would like to quit, more than 50 million Americans continue to smoke. A 1990 Journal of the National Cancer Institute study found that nearly 90% of smokers have attempted to quit at some point, but fewer than 10 percent achieve long-term success.
