Perrigo Company Helps Fight Cancer

Perrigo Company is a proud partner of the American Cancer Society and supports its mission to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer. Our commitment to this important organization and cause involves a longstanding partnership to help people live tobacco-free lives.

Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) is the most commonly used family of over-the-counter (OTC) smoking cessation medications. Nicotine replacement therapy reduces withdrawal feelings by giving you a small controlled amount of nicotine without the other dangerous chemicals found in cigarettes. This small amount of nicotine helps satisfy your craving for nicotine and reduces the urge to smoke.

Doctors and other medical experts believe nicotine replacement therapy is the one of the most helpful tools smokers can use to quit.*

"For more than 130 years, Perrigo has been a trusted supplier of Quality Affordable Healthcare Products® marketed as store brands or retailers' "own label" brands, and remains committed to improving the lives of consumers, patients and families around the world. During this partnership with the American Cancer Society, we hope everyone will join us—and encourage their friends, family and colleagues to join us—in committing or recommitting to tobacco-free living."
