The Nicotine Lozenge NRT

Have you tried the nicotine lozenge? This product works in the same way as nicotine gum; the nicotine is absorbed into the bloodstream through the lining of the mouth. Because the lozenge is sucked until it dissolves completely, up to 25 per cent more nicotine may be absorbed into the blood than with similar dosages of gum. This means that it may be more effective in reducing nicotine withdrawal symptoms.

1. Use one lozenge at a time.

2. Do not exceed 15 lozenges per day.

3. The lozenge should be moved around the mouth from time to time and sucked until it dissolves (takes 20-30 minutes).

4. Do not eat or drink while sucking the lozenge.

5. For about six weeks, use one lozenge about every 1-2 hrs.

6. For the next 3 weeks, use one lozenge every 2-4 hrs. The lozenge comes in two strengths. It is easy to decide which one is suitable for you.

If you usually reach for your first cigarette of the day: • Within 30 minutes of waking – use the 4mg. • Longer than that – use the 2mg.

Nicotine Patch Plus Lozenge
Best for Quitting Smoking

The first head-to-head comparison of different quit-smoking products finds that a nicotine patch combined with a nicotine lozenge had the most success.

More than other methods, including antidepressants, this combination best mimics the actual highs and lows of smoking to help smokers kick their habit, experts said.

"The study shows that, yes, one therapy came out on top, the patch and the lozenge [together]," said Dr. Jonathan H. Whiteson, co-director of the Joan and Joel Smilow Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation and Prevention Center at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York City.

"The reasoning behind it is that the patch supplies a steady supply of nicotine replacement and the lozenges give a boost of nicotine which you can use when you have an extra craving.
