How Do I Use Nicotinell® Lozenges?

SUCK ONE
PIECE

REST BETWEEN
CHEEK AND GUMS

REPEAT FOR
30 MINUTES

To use Nicotinell® Lozenges, follow these four simple steps:

  1. Suck the nicotine lozenge until a strong flavour of nicotine can begin to be tasted.
  2. Rest the lozenge between your cheek and gums and keep it there until the taste begins to fade.
  3. Start sucking again.
  4. Repeat for about 30 minutes, by which time the lozenge should be dissolved completely.

It is vital that you use Nicotinell® Lozenges correctly. Remember, taking breaks between sucking is essential. If more nicotine is released than your mouth is able to absorb, you’ll end up swallowing it and not feeling the effects. If you feel an itchy sensation in your throat, burning in your stomach or experience hiccups or gas, then you should take longer breaks.

You should also consider the right dose to meet your needs. Light smokers — those who have less than 20 cigarettes per day — should opt for 1mg lozenges, while heavy smokers — who have more than 30 cigarettes per day — are recommended to choose 2mg lozenges.
