Directions for Use

Start taking Nicotex Nicotine Patches 21Mg 7'S from the same day you quit taking nicotine (chewing or inhaling tobacco in the form of cigarettes). Nicotex Nicotine Patches 21Mg 7'S is available in different forms that include gums, inhaler, nasal spray, lozenges, and patches.Gums: These gums should be chewed slowly, unlike regular gums, to get the most nicotine out of them. Chew at least after 15 minutes of eating or drinking. Try to chew until you get the peppery taste of nicotine. Then let the gum rest for some time. When you feel that there is no taste in gum, then chew it again. You need to chew it for half an hour until the taste completely fades. Lozenges: These are candy-like tablets similar to throat lozenges, especially for persons who do not prefer to chew gums. Keep the lozenge in the mouth and let it dissolve for 20-30 minutes. Do not swallow or chew lozenges. In this way, nicotine gets absorbed into the bloodstream and helps to manage 'nicotine craving'.Transdermal skin patch: It needs to be applied on a clean, dry, non-hairy area of the skin, such as the upper arm.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Tobacco (nicotine) addiction: Smoking or chewing tobacco is both a psychological habit and physical dependence. Tobacco contains a chemical called 'nicotine' which is short-lived but highly addictive, and its regular usage can make a person crave it. Breathing or chewing tobacco provides a rush of adrenaline in the bloodstream, and it also triggers dopamine that is associated with the pleasure and reward centre of the brain. Regular nicotine consumption is hazardous for health and puts a person at high risk of lung and heart diseases. However, quitting nicotine is not an easy task. It causes withdrawal symptoms in the body, including irritability, frustration, anger, anxiety, difficulty concentrating, increased appetite, restlessness, depressed mood and insomnia (sleeplessness or lack of sleep).
