NiQuitin CQ Classic Step 2 7 Days 14mg 006


NiQuitin is indicated for the relief of nicotine withdrawal symptoms including cravings as an aid to smoking cessation.

Each 15 cm2 transdermal patch contains 78 mg nicotine, equivalent to 5.1 mg/cm2 of nicotine, and delivers 14mg over 24 hours. Each patch is rectangular and is comprised of an outer matt pinkish tan-coloured layer, a middle silver layer and an outer clear layer which is removed prior to use. If possible, when stopping smoking, NiQuitin should be used in conjunction with a behavioural support programme. NiQuitin patch is indicated in adults and adolescents aged 12 years and over. In clinically controlled trials nicotine withdrawal symptoms were alleviated as well as craving. The severity of craving was reduced by at least 35% at all times of day during the first two weeks of abstinence, compared to placebo (p<0.05).

  • Rectangular shaped
  • Indicated for the relief of nicotine withdrawal symptoms
  • Should be used in conjunction with a behavioural support programme

How to use: Adults (18 years and over): The patches should be used as directed below. Prior to initiation of therapy users should be committed to stopping smoking. During a quit attempt, every effort should be made to stop smoking during treatment with NiQuitin. Concurrent behavioural support is recommended, as such programmes have been shown to be beneficial for smoking cessation. In some instances (e.g. in heavy smokers, or those who have relapsed after NRT before, or when one NRT is not enough to control cravings), it may also be beneficial to utilise more than one form of NiQuitin concurrently. For example, smokers who have difficulty controlling cravings when using a patch alone may use a gum, a lozenge or a mini lozenge to support sudden cravings. NiQuitin patches may be used alone or in combination with any NiQuitin 1.5mg/2mg/4mg lozenge, mini lozenge or gum (refer to detailed combination therapy posology below). NiQuitin patches should be applied once a day, at the same time each day and preferably soon after waking and worn continuously for 24 hours. NiQuitin therapy should usually begin with NiQuitin 21 mg/24 hrs and be reduced according to the following dosing schedule. Light smokers (e.g. those who smoke less than 10 cigarettes per day) are recommended to start at Step 2 (14 mg) for 6 weeks and decrease the dose to NiQuitin 7 mg/24 hrs for the final 2 weeks. Patients on NiQuitin 21 mg/24 hrs who experience excessive side effects, which do not resolve within a few days, should change to NiQuitin 14 mg/24 hrs. This strength should then be continued for the remainder of the 6 week course before stepping down to NiQuitin 7 mg/24 hrs for two weeks. If the symptoms persist the patient should be advised to seek the advice of a healthcare professional. For optimum results, the 10 week treatment course (8 weeks for light smokers or patients who have reduced strength as above), should be completed in full. Treatment with NiQuitin patch may be continued beyond 10 weeks if needed to stay cigarette free, however, those who use the patches beyond 9 months are recommended to seek additional help and advice from a healthcare professional. Further courses may be used at a later time, for NiQuitin users who continue or resume smoking. Adolescents (12 to 17 years) should follow the schedule of treatment for adults presented above for steps 1, 2 and 3, but as data are limited, duration of NRT in this age group is restricted to 12 weeks. If longer treatment is required advice from a healthcare professional should be sought. Due to an absence of data adolescents should not quit with a Combination NRT regimen. NiQuitin is contraindicated in children under 12 years of age.
