NiQuitin Clear 21mg/24hrs Transdermal Patches Step 2 are medicated transdermal patches used in the the assistance of smoking cessation in adults. The patches can be used to either complement a cigarette consumption reduction by using in conjunction with reduced smoking or to replace the use of cigarettes as the user gradual weans dose, either exclusively or in combination with other smoking cessation medications or products.
How to Use
- For external use only
- Not recommended for use in children.
The usage of the patches will depend on the number of cigarettes smoked per day. NiQuitin therapy should usually begin with NiQuitin 21 mg/24 hrs and be reduced according to the step down chart over a period of 10 weeks.
One patch will be applied to an intact area of skin each morning and removed on the next morning before the new patch is to be applied (or at bedtime on the day of application if desired). The patch will release the dose of nicotine slowly throughout the day to subdue cravings. The area to which the patch is attached should be alternated on a daily basis to avoid irritation.
To apply the patch, the area of skin should be cleaned and dried. The sachet containing the patch should be opened, and the sticky surface of the patch can then be applied to the area where the patch is to be attached and pressed firmly against the skin to ensure the patch is firmly attached.
Take care when removing and disposing of the patch as some of the surface may still be medicated. Dispose of carefully.
