NICORETTE 2 mg, chewable tablet, should not be given to subjects under 18 years of age without a doctor's prescription. There are no data evaluating the use of this drug in children under 18 years of age.

Adults and Elderly

The number of tablets to be used depends on nicotine dependence, which can be assessed by the Fagerström test.

The 2 mg sucking tablet is indicated for smokers with low or moderate nicotine dependence, i.e. smoking their first cigarette more than 30 minutes after waking up.

Complete cessation of smoking

The treatment of nicotine dependence is usually done in 3 stages.

Stage 1

Weeks 1 to 6

Initial treatment phase

1 tablet to be sucked every 1 to 2 hours

Stage 2

Weeks 7 to 9

Treatment follow-up

1 tablet to be sucked every 2 to 4 hours

Stage 3

Weeks 10 to 12

Smoking cessation

1 sucking tablet every 4 to 8 hours

To help continue the withdrawal after 12 weeks: 1 to 2 tablets to be sucked per day only in case of strong temptations.

During weeks 1 to 6, the dosage should be at least 9 sucking tablets per day.

The number of sucking tablets should not exceed 15 per day.

Temporary abstinence from smoking

Suck one tablet each time the urge to smoke arises.

The number of 2 mg tablets should not exceed 15 tablets per day.

Smoking reduction

If possible, alternate nicotine tablets and cigarettes.

Suck on a tablet as soon as the urge to smoke arises in order to reduce cigarette consumption as much as possible and remain smoke-free for as long as possible.

The number of tablets to be sucked per day is variable and depends on the patient's needs.

However, it should not exceed 15 per day.

If a reduction in cigarette consumption has not been achieved after 6 weeks of treatment, it is recommended to seek advice from a health professional.

The reduction in tobacco consumption should gradually lead the patient to stop smoking completely. This cessation should be attempted as soon as possible within 6 months of the start of treatment. If after 9 months of treatment, the attempt to stop smoking completely has failed, it is recommended to seek advice from a health professional.

It is recommended not to use the sucking tablets beyond 6 months.

Method of administration

The sucking tablet should be placed in the mouth where it will dissolve. It should be moved regularly from one side of the mouth to the other until it is completely dissolved (about 20-30 minutes).

The tablet should not be chewed or swallowed, as the gradually released nicotine must be absorbed by the oral mucosa.

Do not eat or drink while the tablet is in your mouth.
