How to use

Always read the product information before use.

The leaflet tells you how many lozenges you should be using and when and how you should use the lozenges. It also shows you the maximum amount of time you should be using Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) for.

Use the "How to suck the lozenge" instructions to make sure that you use the lozenge correctly. When you suck the lozenge, nicotine is released slowly and taken into the body through the lining of the mouth.

Adults 18 years and over:

  • Suck one lozenge every one to two hours when you feel the urge to smoke
  • Most people use between 8 to 12 lozenges per day. However, if you still have an urge to smoke you can use more lozenges
  • Don't use more than thirty 1mg lozenges per day
  • Do not chew or swallow the lozenges.

How to suck the lozenge:
  • Suck a lozenge until the taste becomes strong
  • Rest the lozenge between your gums and cheek
  • Suck again when the taste has faded
  • Repeat this routine until the lozenge dissolves completely (about 30 minutes).

Do not take more than the amount recommended above.
