Formula
Transdermal delivery system available in sizes of 30, 20 and 10 cm, containing 0.83mg Nicotine per sq cm.
Description
The Nicorette Patch delivers a continuous, controlled dose of nicotine into your body to help relieve cravings and withdrawal symptoms. The nicotine is released through your skin over 16 hours. It is absorbed quite slowly compared to smoking a cigarette so you should be prepared to wait a little while longer for the nicotine to get into your system. The Nicorette Patch is available in three strengths that enable people to start on the highest dose and then gradually reduce their intake. Start with the 15mg full strength patches for 8 weeks and then switch to the 10mg patch for 2 weeks. Finally, lower the dose to the 5mg patches for a further 2 weeks before giving up all together.
Dosage
Nicorette 15mg patch is step1 in the 3 step smoking cessation plan. Apply one 15mg patch daily in the morning and remove after 16 hours i.e. at bed time. This step should be followed by 10mg patches for 2 weeks.
Notice
People under the age of 18 consult your doctor and then follow the suggested smoking cessation plan. Seek medical advice in patients with angina, other heart conditions, peptic ulcers, other gastric diseases, kidney or liver problems or if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Please read the leaflet thoroughly before taking the medication.
