Nicorette Invisipatch Extra Strength 25mg patches are Step 1 in a 12 week nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) programme. They are a once daily patch used to relieve withdrawal symptoms and reduce the cravings for nicotine that you get when you try to stop smoking.
For smokers of more than 20 a day:
When you apply a Nicorette Invisipatch to the skin, nicotine is released gradually over 16 hours and passes into your body through the skin relieving the unpleasant nicotine withdrawal symptoms and your cravings to smoke.
STEP 1: Begin treatment with the highest strength Nicorette Invisipatch 25mg the day after you stop smoking completely. Use a new Nicorette Invisipatch 25mg each day for eight weeks.
STEP 2: If you are successful and avoid smoking during this eight-week period, you should then begin to reduce the amount of nicotine you are getting by switching to a lower strength patch. Now use the Nicorette Invisipatch 15mg each day for two weeks.
STEP 3: If you are successful and avoid smoking over this two-week period, then switch to the lowest strength Nicorette Invisipatch 10mg each day for a further two weeks.
