Do not smoke when using Nicotinell Lozenge.
Suck one lozenge when the patient feels the urge to smoke.
When starting treatment, 1 lozenge may be sucked every 1 to 2 hours. Most people suck 8-12 lozenges per day. The maximum daily dose is 20 lozenges.
Nicotinell Sucking Technique: Suck one lozenge slowly until the taste becomes strong. Rest the lozenge between the gum and the cheek. Suck again when the taste has faded. Suck the lozenge slowly so it remains whole for about 30 minutes. It is important to suck the lozenges correctly over 30 minutes. They must not be chewed. After about three months, the patient must gradually cut down the number of lozenges each day. Stop using the lozenges when the dose has been reduced to 1-2 lozenges a day. The patient should not use the lozenges for longer than 6 months.
