Nicotine - Dosage and How to Use

How should Nicotine be used?

When you feel the urge to smoke, chew one gum to release a taste or until you feel a tingling sensation then park the gum between your cheek and gum. Continue chewing the gum when the taste has faded. Repeat for about 30 minutes until the gum has no more taste, then spit it out. You can chew on one gum every 1-2 hours.

Do not swallow the gum.

Do not use more than the recommended maximum number of gums as instructed by your healthcare professional or use more than one gum each time.
