Dosage of Niquitin 2mg Ice Mint Gum

These Niquitin gums are reserved for adults aged 15 and over.

The 2mg chewing gums are suitable for lightly dependent smokers.

Dosage for complete cessation of smoking: The treatment of nicotine dependence is divided into two phases, the first of which consists of chewing one Niquitin 2 mg gum each time you feel like smoking, i.e. 8 to 12 gums per day, without exceeding 30 gums per day. This first phase lasts about 3 months, depending on the individual response.

The second phase should be carried out when the urge to smoke is completely overcome. The number of gums chewed per day is then reduced. The treatment should be stopped when the need for gum is reduced to 1 or 2 gums per day.

After 12 months of treatment, the use of gums is not recommended and requires medical advice from a specialist.

Dosage for temporary abstinence from tobacco: Same as above, one gum to be chewed as soon as the desire to smoke appears, with 8 to 12 gums per day, without exceeding 30 per day

Dosage in the context of a reduction in tobacco consumption: In this treatment, cigarettes can be used alternately with Niquitin 2 mg gum. The aim is to chew one gum each time you feel like smoking to avoid smoking as much as possible. After 6 weeks of treatment, it is recommended to seek advice from a health professional if the reduction in tobacco consumption does not improve. It is the same if, beyond 9 months, the attempt to stop smoking completely fails.

Method of administration: The nicotine in Niquitin 2mg gum is released through the oral mucosa by chewing. If the nicotine is swallowed with saliva, it will have no effect. When you put the gum in your mouth, you should not chew it too vigorously for the first few minutes. On the contrary, chew it once, then hold it against your cheek for about 10 minutes: the nicotine is gradually released and passes into the circulation.
After these 10 minutes, the gum can be chewed again for 20 to 30 minutes.

Duration of treatment: in the context of a complete cessation of smoking, the duration of use of Niquitin 2mg chewing gum should not exceed 12 months of treatment.

In the event of an overdose or if your child has accidentally ingested gum, contact the emergency service or your doctor. Serious intoxication may occur, manifested by low blood pressure, weak and irregular pulse, respiratory distress, prostration, cardiovascular collapse and convulsions.

Do not double the dose of gum if you forget.
