Nicorette launches 25g nicotine patch to help people stop smoking

  • Comment
Nicorette has launched a new nicotine replacement therapy programme that includes a 25mg nicotine patch to help people trying to stop smoking

Nicorette recommends that smokers begin a stop smoking attempt using a 25mg nicotine patch for eight weeks, then step down to a 15mg patch for two weeks, followed by 10mg patch for a further two weeks.

They cite evidence from a European multi-centre trial involving 3,575 smokers to support the introduction of a higher strength 25mg patch.

This study found that one in two smokers who used the 25mg patch and abstained from smoking during the first week of a quit attempt remained smoke free at 12 weeks.
