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.
