Right for Me?
NicoDerm CQ has been the right method for lots of people who quit smoking, and could
be the right one for you. Of course, you won't know for sure until you try it. Consider NicoDerm CQ, the #1 doctor-recommended nicotine patch, if you:
- Want the flexibility of quitting on your terms
With NicoDerm CQ, you can start wearing the patch on the day you decide to begin your quit, even if you can't immediately stop smoking completely. You can also continue to use NicoDerm CQ beyond the 8 to 10 week timeframe if you feel you need to.
- Prefer not to take oral medication
NicoDerm CQ is a nicotine patch specially formulated to include a patented technology
called SmartControl® on the side you wear against
- Want a low-maintenance solution
Time Release SmartControl Technology includes an extra layer that helps provide
a controlled release of nicotine for 24 hours, ensuring that all of the nicotine
will not be delivered at once or run out too soon.
- Want once-a-day convenience, discreet application
Because NicoDerm CQ is an up to 24-hour patch, you just put on NicoDerm CQ with
Time Release SmartControl Technology once each day for non-stop protection from
nicotine withdrawal. The patch can be worn discreetly on almost any non-hairy area.
We suggest the upper arm.
- Want step-down dosing
Different smokers are used to different nicotine levels; that's why most cold turkey
quitters fail. You choose which is right for you depending on your smoking habits.
Then gradually step down until you are free of both nicotine and cigarettes.
- Want a thin, flexible clear patch
NicoDerm CQ is available in opaque and clear — both are specially formulated with Time Release SmartControl
- Want flexibility of 24-hour or 16-hour use
With NicoDerm CQ and patented Time Release SmartControl Technology, you'll receive
a steady flow of nicotine for 16 or 24 hours (depending on how long you wear your
patch). It's up to you, and your needs.
*Many people require several quit attempts to stop smoking. Behavioral support program
increases chances of success. Use as directed.
