We at the Nicotine Dependence Center are thrilled to see all the support that is happening on the EX Community. 

I have heard a couple of concerns regarding how medications can change effects once you have quit as well as other health concerns. This may be possible, quitting tobacco is a big change and it can make for a disjoint in how your body runs on a day to day basis. Having a team approach which would include health care providers can be very helpful.

Quitting can change; blood pressure, sleep habits, effects of caffeine, and etc. depending on the person.  Therefore, medical staff can play an important role by monitoring and adjusting medications and you move about the quit process.

You’re not alone, keep others informed!
