First thing each morning, apply one fresh patch to clean, dry, hairless skin of the thigh, arm, chest, or hip.
Apply to a new part of your body each day. After 2 to 3 days, you may apply to a previous spot if there’s no sign of irritation. When applying the patch, run your finger around the edge of the patch to ensure it adheres properly.
Before going to sleep, remove the patch and dispose of it safely.
The Nicorette® invisi transdermal patch programme
The full course for using Nicorette® Invisi Transdermal Patch lasts around 12 weeks, from quitting cigarettes to no longer requiring Nicorette®. During that time, you should gradually reduce your intake of nicotine, until you can do without it.
Heavy smokers (those smoking 15 or more cigarettes in a 24-hour period) are recommended to start at Step 1 with the 25mg/16hours patch, gradually weaning according to the recommended dose regimen below.
Light smokers (those smoking less than 15 cigarettes in a 24-hour period) are recommended to start at Step 2 with the 15mg/16 hours patch, gradually weaning according to the recommended dose regimen below.
Consult your pharmacist for the appropriate dosage for you.
