Nicotine - Dosage and How to Use

How should Nicotine be used?

​When you feel the urge to smoke, suck one lozenge to release a peppery taste then park the lozenge between your cheek and gum. Resume sucking the lozenge when the taste has faded. Repeat for about 30 minutes until the lozenge completely dissolves. You can suck on one lozenge every 1-2 hours.

Do not chew or swallow the lozenge.

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