Nicotine Patches

Read More Read Less

Nicotine patches are most-commonly used by those as a nicotine replacement therapy - a cessation process known as NRT -- assisting those interested in quitting an addiction with cigarettes or gradually slow down their smoking habit with help from NRT products like transdermal patches, nicotine gum and lozenges.

 

Even though these transdermal patches release nicotine into the body through the skin, they're a safer alternative than cigarettes because nicotine patches have less nicotine than a cigarette and takes longer to have an effect. Due to the fact that nicotine patches can help reduce nicotine cravings, the patches are endorsed and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a nicotine alternative.

Nicotine Patches FAQ
When can I stop using the patch?
The answer to this question will vary for everyone, but to put it most simply if you're still having strong cravings for cigarettes and worried you'll go back to smoking, it's better to continue using a nicotine replacement therapy than lighting up. If you're having success with your quit attempt, try reducing the dose of your patch or waiting longer intervals between applying until you're able to leave smoking behind for good.
Are there any side effects of nicotine patches?
You might develop itching or a rash on your skin at the site you apply your patch. Other conditions might arise that are similar to nicotine overdose, including nausea, headaches, or cold sweats - if you experience these you might be using a patch that contains too much nicotine.
What strength of nicotine patch should I choose?
The patch is designed to help users taper off of nicotine over time. Heavy smokers might start with the strongest patch available, while light smokers could opt for a mid-range beginning dose. After a week or so, try stepping down one level. If you're still feeling cravings for cigarettes, or if cravings return and don't go away after decreasing your dosage, it might be necessary to temporarily revert to a stronger patch.
How much nicotine is in each patch?
Nicotine patches come in several strengths, generally ranging from 7 to 21 milligrams per patch. Because absorption through the skin isn't a very efficient way to consume nicotine, only about 10% of that amount will make it into a patch user's bloodstream. Patches are a "slow and steady" method of nicotine dosing, so your body won't get the full jolt all at once.
Do I need a prescription for nicotine patches?
No. When the patch was first introduced in 1992, it was only available by prescription. Beginning in 1996, however, nicotine patches became more widely available as an over the counter medication. You can still obtain a prescription from your doctor for the patch, but it isn't necessary to purchase or use one.
Why would I choose to use a nicotine patch?
Patches are the best nicotine replacement therapy for users who want a "set it and forget it" solution. Unlike with gum or vapor products, there's no need to think about dosing multiple times per day. Since patches don't have the oral stimulation component of vaping or gums, they may make it easier to break the smoking habit by disassociating nicotine stimulation with activities involving your mouth, like smoking.
How do nicotine patches work?
A nicotine patch is applied like a bandage to any hairless spot on your body that's above the waist but also below the neck. Over a period of time ranging from a few hours to a full day a slow, steady dose of nicotine is absorbed through the skin to help combat cravings experienced by those who've recently quit smoking cigarettes.
