NICORETTE® INVISIPATCH: for stopping immediately
The idea is to stop smoking immediately and use the patch to relieve the cravings to smoke. After achieving this you then slowly reduce the amount of nicotine that you are getting by switching to lower strength patches. You then stop using the patches. You should aim to do this within 12 weeks (3 months).
If you smoke more than 10 cigarettes a day, then the NICORETTE® INVISI 25mg PATCH is the correct starting dose for you. The NICORETTE® INVISIPATCH™ is available in three strengths (25mg, 15mg & 10mg), so you can start on the highest dose and then gradually reduce your intake:
Step 1 : Start with the strength 25mg full strength patches for eight weeks
Step 2 : Switch to the 15mg patch for two weeks
Step 3 : Finally, lower the dose to the 10mg patches for a further 2 weeks before giving up all together
Or if you smoke fewer than 10 cigarettes a day, then you should start on the 15mg patch for 8 weeks, then cut down to the 10mg patch for 4 weeks.
