Nicotine - Dosage and How to Use

How should Nicotine be used?

On waking up, remove the backing of the patch and apply onto any hairless, clean and dry area of your chest, back, upper arm, thigh or hip. Hold down for 10 seconds and run your finger around the edges of the patch to ensure proper adhesion.

Before going to sleep, remove the patch, fold the used patch into half with the sticky sides together and throw it away.

Apply the patch to a different site each day to reduce skin irritation. After 2 to 3 days, you may apply to a previous spot if there is no sign of irritation. Do not apply patch onto broken skin, red or irritated areas.

What should I do if I miss a dose?

​If you miss a dose, apply it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and apply the patch at your usual time. Do not apply two patches to make up for the missed dose.

What should I do if I overdose?

​If you take more than the recommended dose, please seek medical advice immediately.
