Nicorette Lozenge

How many nicotine lozenges can you take in a day ?

Most people take between 8 and 12 Nicorette® Lozenges per day to help keep nicotine cravings at bay. You should not take more than 15 lozenges per day

How long can you take Nicorette Lozenges for ?

As soon as you feel ready, you should start to reduce the number of lozenges you use until you have stopped taking them completely. This could be after a few weeks or a few months.

What’s the difference between lozenges and microtab ?

Did you know that smokers are 25% more likely to quit using combination therapy versus single NRT? So, if you’re struggling to quit using just one NRT product, it might be time to try the Nicorette® Dual Support method.

 

Combine your Nicorette® InvisiPatch with the Nicorette® Lozenge for added support in curbing your nicotine cravings. The Nicorettre® InvisiPatch provides sustained levels of background nicotine, while the Nicorette Lozenge offers relief from any breakthrough cravings. It’s one of the most effective ways to help you quit for good.

How Nicorette® Lozenge works

How Nicorette® Lozenge works

Nicorette® Lozenges are a form of Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) that can help ease cravings when you stop smoking to boost your chances of quitting.

Cravings are the main symptom of withdrawal, as your body misses the nicotine it was absorbing from cigarettes. While cravings can pass, Nicorette® Lozenge can help you handle situations that trigger cravings, along with times of the day when you can’t or don’t want to smoke.

So, how do they work? Like most NRT products, Nicorette® Lozenges provide your body with a low-level dose of nicotine to relieve your cravings – without the tar, carbon monoxide and toxic chemicals found in tobacco smoke. As the lozenge dissolves, nicotine is released into your body through the lining of your mouth.

You may start to feel the craving subside, but you won’t have the same ‘buzz’ you get from smoking a cigarette.

We offer two strengths of Nicorette® Lozenge depending on your current smoking levels:

2mg Lozenge – Suitable if you smoke 20 cigarettes or less per day. Available in both Nicorette® Cools and Nicorette® Fruit Lozenges.

4mg Lozenge – Suitable if you smoke more than 20 cigarettes per day. Only available in Nicorette® Cools Lozenge.

How to use Nicorette Lozenge

Use a Nicorette® Lozenge in place of cigarettes when needed. This could be to calm your cravings while trying to quit or on those occasions where you’re unable to smoke – such as on the train, around children or at work.

If you’re struggling to stop smoking, you should replace as many cigarettes as possible with the lozenge to help motivate you to quit.

Here’s a step by step guide to how to use Nicorette® Lozenges:

1. Push and lift the button on your dispenser to open.

2. Place one lozenge in your mouth and allow it to dissolve.

3. Move the lozenge from one side of your mouth to the other.

4. Repeat periodically until the lozenge is completely dissolved. Do not chew or swallow the lozenge.

The number of lozenges you use each day will vary depending on the type of cigarettes you’re used to, their strength and how many you smoked a day. Most smokers take between 8 to 12 lozenges per day. Just make sure you don’t take more than 15 lozenges in one day.
