Full Prescribing Info
Action
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 is dependent on nicotine.
When the patient apply Nicorette Invisi Transdermal Patch to the skin and chew Nicorette Icy Mint Gum, nicotine is released and passes into the body and through the lining of the mouth.
The nicotine released from the patch and gum are sufficient to relieve the unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. It will also help to stop the craving to smoke, but Nicorette Invinsi Transdermal Patch and Nicorette Icy Mint Gum will not give the buzz the patient got from smoking a cigarette.
