Table of contents:

Nicoderm is a nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) product used to help people quit smoking by reducing withdrawal symptoms and cravings. Nicoderm works by delivering a constant stream of therapeutic nicotine through the skin using a transdermal patch. This helps in preventing smoking cravings throughout the day when worn for 24 hours. The patch is designed to gradually decrease the amount of nicotine delivered over time, helping smokers to wean themselves off nicotine in a controlled manner.

The patches come in different strengths, so users can start with the highest strength and gradually reduce the strength over time. Nicoderm is available without a prescription and can be purchased online or in stores. It is important to use Nicoderm CQ patches as part of a comprehensive smoking cessation program, which may also include counseling and behavioral support.

Uses and Dosage

A nicotine patch must be applied to a clean, dry, and non-hairy area on the trunk or upper arm, as recommended in the manufacturer's instruction sheet. Prior to applying the patch, ensure that the skin is free of any irritants, and remove any hair if necessary.

Do not use the patch over any irritated or damaged skin, or over any other skin products, such as lotions, makeup, and powders. Never use the patch if the individual pouch is open or damaged or if the patch is cut, torn, or damaged. To avoid irritation, apply the patch to a different area each time, waiting at least a week between applications at the same site. In case the patch falls off, apply a new one.

Do not wear a patch for more than 24 hours. Do not wear more than 1 patch at a time. After removing each patch, fold it in half so it sticks to itself, and discard in the trash away from children and pets.

To use a Nicotine PATCH Patch, Transdermal 24 Hours, follow these steps:

  1. Choose a clean, dry, non-hairy area of skin, such as the upper arm or shoulder.
  2. Open the patch packaging and remove the protective liner.
  3. Apply the patch to the chosen area of skin, pressing down firmly.
  4. Leave the patch in place for 24 hours.
  5. After 24 hours, remove the patch and choose a new area of skin to apply to the next patch.
  6. Repeat this process until you have completed your recommended course of treatment.

Follow the instructions that come with the patch and speak with a healthcare professional before starting any new treatment. Additionally, if you experience any adverse reactions or side effects while using the patch, contact your healthcare provider immediately.
