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.
You can also buy one weeks’ supply of Nicotinell® Patches + Gum in a pre-made pack that contains seven Nicotinell® Patches 21 mg and 36 pieces of Nicotinell® Gum 2 mg.
Which strength do I need?
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?

After 12 weeks, you should wean yourself off nicotine replacement therapy by reducing the strength of or stopping the patches, and gradually reducing the amount of gum or lozenges you take until you no longer need them.
