Weeks 1 through 4: Step 1 use one 21mg patch/day. Weeks 5 and 6: Step 2 use one 14 mg patch/day. Weeks 7 and 8: Step 3 use one 7 mg patch/day.
If you smoke 10 or less cigarettes per day, start with step 2 for 6 weeks, then step 3 for 2 weeks. Apply one new patch every 24 hours on skin that is dry, clean and hairless. Remove backing from patch and immediately press onto skin. Hold for 10 seconds. Wash hands after applying or removing patch. Save pouch to use for patch disposal. Dispose of the used patches by folding sticky ends together and putting in pouch. The used patch should be removed and a new one applied to a different skin site at the same time each day. If you have vivid dreams, you may remove the patch at bedtime and apply a new one in the morning. Do not wear more than one patch at a time. Do not cut patch in half or into smaller pieces. Do not leave patch on for more than 24 hours because it may irritate your skin and loses strength after 24 hours. To avoid possible burns, remove patch before undergoing any MRI procedures. It is important to complete treatment. If you feel the need to use the patch for a longer period to keep from smoking, talk to your health care provider. Store at 20 - 25°C (68 - 77°F).
