3. HOW TO TAKE NICORETTE 2 mg SUGAR-FREE, medicated chewing gum sweetened with sorbitol?

Instructions for proper use

Not applicable.

Dosage, Method and/or route(s) of administration, Frequency of administration and Duration of treatment

For adults only (15 years and older).

Dosage

Chewing gums dosed at 2 mg are not suitable for smokers who are strongly or very strongly dependent on nicotine (Fagerström test score of 7 to 10 or smoking more than 20 cigarettes per day: see Health education advice).

Quitting smoking completely

Treatment of nicotine dependence is usually done in 2 phases.

1st phase

Chew gum every time you feel like smoking.

The number of 2 mg chewing gums is usually 8 to 12 gums per day and should never exceed 30 gums per day.

The duration of this phase is approximately 3 months, but may vary depending on individual response.

2nd phase

When the urge to smoke is completely overcome, gradually reduce the number of gums chewed per day.

Treatment should be stopped when consumption is reduced to 1 to 2 gums per day.

It is recommended not to use the gums beyond 12 months.

If during your treatment you continue to experience cravings or if your treatment has failed, CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR.

Your doctor may advise you to combine NICORETTE Chewing Gum with a form that delivers nicotine throughout the day: NICORETTE Transdermal Devices.

Temporary abstinence from smoking

Chew a piece of gum every time you feel like smoking.

The number of 2 mg chewing gums is generally 8 to 12 gums per day and should never exceed 30 gums per day.

Reducing tobacco consumption

If possible, alternate nicotine gum with cigarettes.

Chew gum as soon as the urge to smoke arises in order to reduce cigarette consumption as much as possible and to remain smoke-free as long as possible.

The number of gums to chew per day varies and depends on your needs. However, it should not exceed 30 gums 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 of tobacco consumption should lead you gradually to a complete stop of smoking. This cessation should be attempted as soon as possible within 6 months of starting treatment. If beyond 9 months after the start of treatment, the attempt to stop smoking completely has failed, it is recommended that you seek advice from a healthcare professional.
