How does it work?
Nicotinell® Patches provide a controlled dose of nicotine throughout the day, however when the cravings hit hard, you may need an extra dose of nicotine. For a fast craving hit, try adding Nicotinell® Gum 2 mg, or for something longer lasting, combine Nicotinell® Patches with Nicotinell® Lozenges 2 mg.
Which strength suits me?
You can combine Nicotinell® Patches 21 mg with Nicotinell® Gum 2 mg or Nicotinell® Lozenges 2 mg.
Note: Nicotinell® Gum 4 mg or Nicotinell® Lozenges 4 mg should NOT be used with Nicotinell® Patches.
How do I use the combination of nicotine patch + gum or lozenge?
Use each product as directed for 12 weeks. You can find further instructions on how to use each product by clicking the links below:
After 12 weeks, you should wean yourself off nicotine replacement therapy. There are two options:
- Stop the patch and gradually reduce the gum or lozenge until they are no longer needed.
- Continue using the same number of pieces of gum or lozenge and reduce to the Step 2 patch for 3-4 weeks. Then use the Step 3 patch for 3-4 weeks. When the patch is no longer needed gradually reduce the number of pieces of gum or lozenge until you no longer need them.
Below is a suggested guide on how to use Nicotinell® Patches 21 mg with either Nicotinell® Gum 2 mg or Nicotinell® Lozenges 2 mg.
