How Nicorette Invisi Transdermal Patch works: When the patient stops smoking, the body misses the nicotine that the patient has been absorbing. The patient may experience unpleasant feelings and a strong desire to smoke (craving). This indicates that the patient were dependent on nicotine.
When the patient applies a Nicorette Invisi Transdermal Patch to the skin, nicotine is released and passes into the body. The nicotine released from the patch is sufficient to relieve the unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. It will also help to stop the craving to smoke, but Nicorette Invisi Transdermal Patch will not give the "buzz" the patient gets from smoking a cigarette.
