  • Patient counselling and support normally improve the success rate.
  • Always take Nicotinell Mint Lozenge exactly as stated in this package leaflet. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.

How to use

Nicotinell Mint Lozenge is available in two strengths: 1 and 2 mg. The appropriate dose will depend on your previous smoking habits. You should use the 2 mg Nicotinell Mint lozenge if:

  • You are a smoker with a strong or very strong nicotine 

  • You have previously failed to stop smoking with the 
1 mg lozenge, 

  • Your withdrawal symptoms remain so strong as to 
threaten relapse. 
Otherwise 1 mg Nicotinell Mint lozenge should be used.

If an adverse event occurs with the use of the high dose (2 mg lozenge), use of the low dose (1 mg lozenge) should be considered. 
Instructions for use:

  • Suck a lozenge until the taste becomes strong.
  • Allow the lozenge to rest between your gum and cheek.
  • Suck again when the taste has faded.
  • Repeat this routine until the lozenge dissolves completely (about 30 minutes).

Dosage for adults over 18 years:

  • Suck one lozenge when you feel the urge to general one lozenge should be taken every one or two hours.
  • Normally 8-12 lozenges per day are sufficient. If you still experience an urge to smoke, you can suck additional lozenges.
  • Do not exceed 15 lozenges per day of the 2 mg strength.

The treatment duration is individual. Normally, treatment should continue for at least 3 months. After 3 months, you should gradually reduce the number of lozenges used each day. Treatment should be stopped when you have reduced your use of the lozenge to 1-2 lozenges per day. It is generally not recommended to use Nicotinell Mint lozenge for longer than 6 months.
