You'll get a customizable quit plan to help you find out when, where and why you're tempted to smoke. Plus, you'll learn that quitting is about understanding your personal triggers and finding the solutions and resources you need to help change your habits over time.
Together, they provide a total quitting system that can help double your chances of quitting smoking.
NicoDerm CQ is a patch of Therapeutic Nicotine that you can wear for up to 24 hours. The patented SmartControl technology provides a controlled release of nicotine at a slower, less intense pace than cigarettes without the harmful carcinogens that cigarettes contain. It works to help you quit smoking by reducing nicotine withdrawal symptoms so you can gradually wean yourself from it altogether.
NicoDerm CQ is available in opaque and clear, the most flexible clear patch ever - and both are specially formulated with patented SmartControl technology. Just put the patch on once a day and follow the 8- or 10-week quit-smoking system, which also helps you make behavioral changes, and you'll be free from nicotine and cigarettes.
Occasionally, some users may encounter side effects. You should stop use of NicoDerm CQ and ask a doctor if skin redness caused by the patch does not go away after four days, or if your skin swells, or you get a rash. Also stop use and ask a doctor if an irregular heartbeat or palpitations occur, or you get symptoms of nicotine overdose such as nausea, vomiting, dizziness, weakness and rapid heartbeat.
The safety of NicoDerm CQ and Therapeutic Nicotine from stop-smoking quit aids has been proven repeatedly. In fact, over 100 clinical studies and extensive use over decades all prove that stop-smoking quit aids are safe and effective when used as directed. And NicoDerm CQ is the #1 doctor-recommended patch.
Always read and follow label directions.
