Nicorette Invisi-Patch:

The Nicorette Invisipatch is a discreet, easy to use, once a day solution to help you deal with the cravings and withdrawal symptoms associated with quitting smoking.

The semi-transparent Nicorette Invisipatch helps you to quit by delivering a continuous, controlled dose of nicotine into your body to help relieve cravings and withdrawal symptoms.

The nicotine is released through your skin over 16 hours. It is absorbed quite slowly compared to smoking a cigarette so you should be prepared to wait a little while longer for the nicotine to get into your system.

Nicorette invisi patch is a nicotine replacement therapy (NRT). It is used to relieve withdrawal symptoms and reduce the cravings for nicotine that you get when you try to stop smoking.

  • Nicorette invisi 25mg patch: Each patch releases 25 milligrams of nicotine, the active ingredient, over 16 hours.
  • Nicorette invisi 15mg patch: Each patch releases 15 milligrams of nicotine, the active ingredient, over 16 hours.
  • Nicorette invisi 10mg patch: Each patch releases 10 milligrams of nicotine, the active ingredient, over 16 hours.

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.

If you smoke more than 10 cigarettes a day, then the 25mg Patch is a good starting dose for you.

If you smoke less 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.

What does Nicorette Invisipatch do?

When you stop smoking, your body misses the nicotine that you have been absorbing. You may experience unpleasant feelings and a strong desire to smoke (craving). This indicates that you were dependent on nicotine. When you apply a nicorette invisi patch to the skin, nicotine is released and passes into your body through the skin.

The nicotine released is sufficient to relieve the unpleasant nicotine withdrawal symptoms. It will also help to stop your craving to smoke but will not give you the "buzz" you get from smoking a cigarette.

The benefits of stopping smoking far outweigh any potential risk from using nicotine from NRT. It is the toxins in cigarette smoke such as tar, lead, cyanide and ammonia that cause smoking related disease and death, not the nicotine.

How to stop smoking

Because smoking is an addiction you may find it difficult to give up. From time to time you may still have strong urges to smoke but if you follow these recommendations, you have a good chance of quitting.

If you find it hard to stop smoking using nicorette invisi patch, you are worried that you will start smoking again without it, or you find it difficult to reduce the number of patches you are using, talk to your doctor, nurse or pharmacist. Remember nicorette invisi patches are not intended as a substitute for smoking, they are an aid to give up.

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).

 

  • Begin treatment with the highest strength nicorette invisi 25mg patch the day after you stop smoking completely. Use a new nicorette invisi 25mg patch each day for eight weeks.
  • If you are successful and avoid smoking during this eight week period, you should then begin to reduce the amount of nicotine you are getting by switching to a lower strength patch. Now use the nicorette invisi 15mg patch each day for two weeks.
  • If you are successful and avoid smoking over this two week period, then switch from the nicorette invisi 15mg patch to the nicorette invisi 10mg patch each day for a further two weeks.

 

You might feel a sudden craving to smoke long after you have given up smoking and stopped using nicorette invisi patch.

Remember you can use nicotine replacement therapy again if this should happen.

Do not use for more than 9 months in total without asking for help and advice from a doctor, nurse or pharmacist.

Remember, if you have any questions or are not sure of anything, please ask your pharmacist or local GP for advice and always read the label.

Requires willpower.

Fast, Effective craving relief

The fresh-tasting minty spray provides small doses of therapeutic nicotine to help manage the nicotine withdrawal cravings you get when quitting. You can use Nicorette Quickmist whether you want to stop smoking completely, cut down the amount you smoke, or simply use as a safer alternative when you can't or don't want to smoke, for example in front of children, at work, or when travelling.

Discreet, Convenient and Flexible

Nicorette Quickmist is ideal for use on the go.  The handy, discreet packaging fits easily into your handbag or pocket, so you can help to relieve your nicotine cravings wherever and whenever they strike.

The portable mouth spray fits conveniently into your life whether you're at home, in the office, out with friends or just walking down the street.

Nicorette Quickmist acts fast to help you quit

The therapeutic nicotine from the spray is rapidly absorbed through the lining of the mount, and can get to work on nicotine cravings in 60 seconds to give you fast relief from your withdrawal symptoms.

Nicotine cravings can ambush you at any time, in any place, in any situation, and when they do your ability to overcome them through willpower alone is seriously at risk.

Tackling these cravings as quickly as possible can help you regain control and feel more confident about succeeding in your quit attempt.

Directions

Nicorette Invisi-Patch:

Choosing where to apply the patch

  • Before applying your nicorette invisi patch, choose a completely clean, dry area of hairless skin on the front or side of the chest, upper arm or hip.
  • Avoid placing the patch onto any area of skin that is red, cut or irritated.
  • Do not apply oil or talcum powder to the skin before putting on the patch as this may prevent it from sticking properly.
  • It is important that you do not use the same area on two consecutive days to help avoid irritating that site.

How to apply the patch

  • Wash your hands before applying the patch.
  • Each nicorette invisi patch comes in a child resistant sachet which can be opened by cutting along the edge with a pair of scissors.
  • Remove the patch from its sachet and then peel one part of the silvery aluminium backing away. Avoid touching the sticky surface of the patch with your fingers.
  • Carefully apply the sticky part of the patch to the chosen area of skin and then peel off the remaining half of the silvery aluminium backing foil.
  • Press the patch firmly onto the skin with your palm or finger tips.
  • Run your fingers around the edge to ensure it sticks firmly.

Removing and disposing of the patch

  • The patch should be removed before you go to bed as nicorette invisi patch is not designed to be worn when you go to sleep at night or for more than 16 hours each day.
  • After removal, the patch should be folded in half, sticky side inwards and placed inside the opened sachet or a piece of aluminium foil.
  • The patch should then be disposed of carefully in the household rubbish, out of reach of children and animals.

Warnings

Nicorette Invisi-Patch:

Do not use Nicorette Invisipatch if you have an allergy to nicotine or any of the other ingredients.

Talk to your doctor, nurse or pharmacist:

  • if you are pregnant or breast-feeding - you may be able to use nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) to help you give up smoking but you should try to give up without it.
  • If you are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • if you are in hospital because of heart disease (including heart attack, disorders of heart rate or rhythm, or stroke).
  • In other heart conditions not requiring you to be in hospital, using NRT is better than continuing to smoke.
  • if you have liver or kidney disease.
  • if you have an overactive thyroid gland or have a phaeochromocytoma (a tumour of the adrenal gland that can affect blood pressure) - your doctor will have told you this.
  • if you have diabetes - monitor your blood sugar levels more often when starting to use nicorette invisi patches as you may find your insulin or medication requirements alter.
  • if you have a skin disorder such as psoriasis, eczema or hives (urticaria) covering a large area of your skin.
  • if you are taking other medicines such as theophylline, clozapine or ropinirole. Stopping smoking or cutting down may require the dose of these medicines to be adjusted.

If you are pregnant ideally, you should try to give up smoking without NRT. If you can't manage this  you can use NRT as the risks to your baby are far less than smoking, however you should talk to your doctor, nurse or pharmacist for advice.
