I want to try combination therapy

Nicotinell TTS Patches provide a stable level of nicotine over 24 hours, while the gum can help take the edge off the urgent need to smoke. But remember, you shouldn't use combinations long-term, and you should speak to your doctor, nurse or pharmacist before starting this type of treatment.

The Nicotinell product range includes TTS Patch, Medicated Chewing Gum and Lozenge. All these products contain nicotine and are stop smoking aids. You should always read the label and are advised that willpower is required.
