Biologically-Timed Drug Delivery
Cravings to smoke typically follow a regular daily pattern with the strongest cravings first thing in the morning and after meals.
Chrono proactively delivers transdermal nicotine timed to when cravings are strongest to minimize the unpleasant symptoms of nicotine withdrawal and allow smokers to focus on becoming ex-smokers.
Morning cravings are strong: 75% of smokers have their first cigarette within 30 minutes of waking up. Chrono is the first nicotine replacement therapy to solve the morning craving by providing support before the craving strikes. The system is worn overnight and programmed to the quitter's wake up time, so it can start delivering nicotine before he or she wakes for the day.
Throughout the rest of the day, we reduce cravings by delivering more nicotine when cravings are predicted to be the strongest and slips are most likely to occur, first thing in the morning and after meals for most smokers. And nicotine support continues into the evening to support quitters even if they're out on the town or craving a late night cigarette.
Between peaks, quitters receive a smaller but steady flow of nicotine, which keeps withdrawal symptoms at bay without prolonging nicotine dependency.
