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 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:

  1. Stop the patch and gradually reduce the gum or lozenge until they are no longer needed.
  2. 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.
