Quitting smoking comes in three easy steps!
Habitrol Patch is a quick solution to quitting smoking. With about 52.5 mg nicotine, it is your to-go nicotine stop smoking product. The patch also facilitates release of nicotine through day and night, for 24 hour quitting smoking.
Habitrol Patch is now accessible in three varying strengths – 7 mg, 14 mg, and 21 mg and three easy steps. You simply have to apply it on and nicotine is absorbed through your skin. By using the patch, you save yourself the risk of harmful toxin inhalation. Plus, you’ll remain free of second-hand smoke smell!
Habitrol patches are part of a carefully structured Habitrol support program including materials designed to provide you with information to help you stop smoking (see leaflet inside carton). Habitrol patches, being a step-down approach will reduce your nicotine dose gradually, rather than stopping suddenly. The program consists of 3 steps which you will need to follow. Each step has a specifically designed Habitrol patch that supplies your body with nicotine over a 24 hour period. The dose of nicotine delivered through the patch decreases as you go from Habitrol Step 1 through to Habitrol Step 3. Completing the entire program will increase your chance of quitting successfully. The step at which you start the program will depend on how many cigarettes you smoke each day. Each Habitrol patch can be worn for 24 hours so it works night and day.
Habitrol Step 1 (21mg/24 hours patch) is the starting point for people who smoke 20 or more cigarettes a day. You should remain on Habitrol Step 1, one patch per day, for 4 weeks. At this point:
Habitrol Step 2 (14mg/24 hours patch) can be commenced on a daily basis for 4 weeks, prior to moving to:
Habitrol Step 3 (7mg/24 hours patch) for another period of 4 weeks.
In total the Habitrol treatment will take 12 weeks.
If you smoke less than 20 cigarettes per day you only need to start with Habitrol Step 2 (14mg/24 hours patch), and use this for 4 weeks. You can then follow on with Habitrol Step 3 (7mg/24 hour patch) for 8 weeks.
Adult dosage: Apply one patch at the same time everyday, preferably on waking. Press patch firmly onto clean, dry, non-hairy skin, holding it in place for 20 seconds. Do not re-apply to previously used skin for 3 days. The enclosed leaflet provides full instructions on application. It is important to read and follow them carefully in order to ensure optimal adhesion of the patch.
Habitrol patches 21mg contain Nicotine 21mg per patch.
HABITROL Patch should not be used for non smokers or occasional smokers, children under 12 years of age, those with diseases of the skin ( which may complicate patch therapy ) or known hypersensitivity to nicotine or to any of the components of the therapeutic system
