Nicotinell mint lozenges are a nicotine replacement therapy which is used to relieve cravings and reduce the withdrawal symptoms you experience when trying to give up smoking. When you suck the lozenge, nicotine is released slowly into your mouth, and is absorbed through your mouth lining. Nicotinell Lozenges should be used In between your smoking periods, in order to prolong the gaps between cigarettes.Drug Warning
Avoid drinking coffee, fizzy drinks, or other acidic drinks for the 15 minutes prior to using the lozenge, as they can decrease the absorption of nicotine.
You should also not eat or drink while sucking the lozenge.
You should consult a medical professional if you are still using lozenges for 9 months.
