Nicotinell TTS-20 14MG (OTC)
Nicotinell patches can help you to stop smoking. Nicotine passes from the patch through your skin and into the body, replacing the nicotine you would normally get from smoking. These patches are available in three sizes and strengths so ensure you choose the most suitable patch for your stage of smoking cessation. As your body adjusts to not smoking you should gradually reduce the size of the patch over a period of up to 12 weeks until you no longer need to use them. These step 2 patches are suitable for smokers of less than 20 cigarettes a day to start with or for heavy smokers who have completed step 1 of this programme. If you smoke fewer than 20 cigarettes a day, start with a 14 mg patch every day for 3-8 weeks. If you started with the 21 mg patch, switch to the 14 mg patch after 3-4 weeks. Keep using the 14mg patch every day for another 3-4 weeks.
