Combination Therapy- Patch used with *lozenge or gum. It’s as good as it gets.

Not smoking is tough. It takes about 84 days for most of us to get used to it and in fact the first 2 weeks are arguably the toughest. To give you the best possible chance to get past those first 2 weeks it may be worth giving combination therapy a try. Combination therapy is simple. It is when you use more than one nicotine replacement product at once. For example, wear a patch all day. Take a *lozenge or a gum when you get the urge to smoke. Please note, you mustn’t wear two patches at once.

When you combine treatments, you can attack your smoking habit on two fronts and manage it around the clock. It’s a useful method if you need extra support to stop smoking, but make sure you talk to a healthcare professional before you start on this course of treatment. Please note, however, if you are using the 1mg lozenge in combination with the patch, you should stop smoking completely.

Please read the leaflet enclosed in the pack and make sure you follow the instructions carefully.
Safety information: When the patch has adhered to your skin, it releases nicotine. Nicotine can irritate your skin, so you may notice red marks when you remove the patch. The redness usually disappears after a few days and is not dangerous. If your skin feels itchy or if you notice blisters forming, then you should stop using the patch immediately, since this can indicate an allergic reaction to the nicotine or the adhesive.
