    What is the nicotine patch and how is it used?

    The nicotine patch is a small, nicotine-containing patch. When you put on a nicotine patch, nicotine passes through the skin and into your body. The nicotine patch is very thin and uses special material to control how fast nicotine passes through the skin. Unlike the sudden jolts of nicotine delivered by cigarettes, the amount of nicotine you receive remains relatively smooth throughout the 24 or 16 hour period you wear the nicotine patch. This helps to reduce cravings you may have for nicotine.

    For your family's protection, nicotine patches are supplied in child-resistant pouches. Do not use if individual pouch/packet is damaged or open.

    Read carton and enclosed User's Guide before using this product. Keep the carton and User's Guide. They contain important information
