Smoking Cessation Aids

Cancer, lung disease, heart disease, stroke, cataracts—despite the long list of reasons not to smoke, many people find it tough to quit. Over-the-counter smoking cessation aids are usually designed to help wean you off nicotine. Your healthcare professional can give you guidance on how to kick the habit, whether it's by going "cold turkey," or through counseling, medications, or a combination.

Sleep Aids

Are you getting 7 to 8 hours of shut-eye each night? Consistent, quality sleep is essential for your health, but millions of Americans don't get enough of it, due to active lifestyles or medical conditions that prevent them from getting uninterrupted and restful sleep. A doctor may recommend taking an over-the-counter product that induces drowsiness, but regular exercise and avoiding caffeine and nicotine may also help you get enough rest.
