Anti-cat spraying products

I will be moving into a new home within the next month, and my cat has a little issue of territorial spraying when something changes in his environment. I got him when he was 7 years old and he's close to 10 now, and I've only had the spraying problem when I moved before or when my boyfriend moved in with me. If he sprays at the new home, I will have to get rid of him, and I don't want that to happen. He's a relatively good cat, except the spraying issue.
My question is are there any products out there that actually help eliminate this problem? I recently saw a cat plug in pheramone product that works like those glade plug-ins to help make the cat feel calm. Does that work? I've tried sprays, but they just smell bad, and I'm not sure they even really work. I've also tried medications, but they just make my cat almost lifeless.

Thanks for the info. I think I'll try Felineway. Also, I heard the if you put liquid Kava Kava extract into your cat's drinking water, it has the same effect. I think I'm going to try both and hopefully my kitty won't have any accidents. UTIs have already been ruled out in my case, so at least I know why he's doing it, and maybe that'll help a lot in preventing the problem.

please DON'T put Kava Kava into your cat's water!! Kava Kava is a very dangerous substance when used incorrectly, and you can't be sure you're not putting too much in there. Furthermore, a cat's metabolism is different than a human's and reacts differently to substances with pharmaceutical properties.

Also, please bear in mind that Feliway generally takes around 4 weeks to be effective, so you might want to plug one into your existing home before you move.
There are various deterrent sprays on the market, but most of them stink and without covering the house in it, you can't really know beforehand where he is going to spray.
Sorry my post hasn't been that useful! Anyway, good luck!
