It can be tricky to overcome your cravings. Nicabate® 24 Hour Patches provide a continuous, steady dose of nicotine around the clock, to help you manage your cravings

Waking up with the urge to smoke is one of the predictors of a lapse.6 To help protect against morning cravings, Nicabate® 24 Hour Patches provide a steady stream of nicotine over 24 hours. They start delivering nicotine as soon as the patch is applied.

Nicabate® 24 hour Patches come in three different strengths, to be used as part of the step down program that gradually helps to wean your body off nicotine while keeping cravings and withdrawal symptoms under control.

Carefully read the label to check which strength (and step) to start with and follow the program as indicated on the back of the carton and in the leaflet.

If you smoke 10 cigarettes or more a day, start with Step 1 and gradually move to Steps 2 and 3 as directed on pack over 10 weeks. If you smoke fewer than 10 cigarettes a day, start at Step 2 and follow the 8 week program described on the pack
