A NOTE FROM WIZARD
All reasonable efforts have been made to ensure that ingredient listings, product images and other information for products displayed on this website are up to date, accurate and complete.
We still recommend that you check the ingredient listings and warnings on a product before use.
Nicotinell patches are part of a carefully structured Nicotinell support program including materials designed to provide you with information to help you stop smoking (see leaflet inside carton).
Nicotinell patches, being a step-down approach will reduce your nicotine dose gradually, rather than stopping suddenly. The program consists of 3 steps which you will need to follow.
Each step has a specifically designed Nicotinell patch that supplies your body with nicotine over a 24 hour period. The dose of nicotine delivered through the patch decreases as you go from Nicotinell 30 through to Nicotinell 10. Completing the entire program will increase your chance of quitting successfully. The step at which you start the program will depend on how many cigarettes you smoke each day.
Each Nicotinell patch can be worn for 24 hours so it works night and day.
If you smoked more than 20 cigarettes per day use this product as step 2 of your program to quit smoking and use for 3-4 weeks.
If you smoke less than 20 cigarettes per day use this product to start quitting now and use for your first for 6-8 weeks.
In total the Nicotinell treatment will take 12 weeks.
Adult dosage: Apply one patch at the same time every day, preferably on waking. Press patch firmly onto clean, dry, non-hairy skin, holding it in place for 20 seconds. Do not re-apply to previously used skin for 3 days.
The enclosed leaflet provides full instructions on application. It is important to read and follow them carefully in order to ensure optimal adhesion of the patch.
