NICABATE Patches are tan or clear square patches for sticking on your skin. They are a stop smoking aid which helps you to give up smoking by replacing some of the nicotine you are used to getting from cigarettes. It is the nicotine in cigarettes that can make you physically addicted to them. This type of treatment is called Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT). NICABATE Patches provide a steady amount of nicotine to your body, generally at a level lower than from cigarettes. This nicotine relieves some of the unpleasant symptoms such as feeling ill or irritable that smokers often feel when they try to give up. The nicotine can also reduce your cravings for a cigarette and help you to resist the urge to smoke.

Because NICABATE Patches do not contain the tar, carbon monoxide or other toxins in cigarette smoke, they do not have the health dangers of tobacco.

If possible, when giving up smoking, NICABATE Patches should be used with a stop smoking behavioural support programme.

There are no health benefits to smoking. It is always better to give up smoking and using NRT can help. In general, any possible side effects associated with NRT are far outweighed by the well established dangers of continuing to smoke.

Do not use NICABATE patches if:

  • You are allergic to nicotine or any of the ingredients listed at the end of this leaflet.
  • You are a non-smoker.
  • You are under 12 years of age. Children are more likely to be affected by nicotine and it could cause severe toxicity which may be fatal.
  • You have a skin condition or disease such as allergic eczema or dermatitis.

In addition, do not use Nicabate Pre-Quit patches if:

  • You smoke less than 15 cigarettes a day.
  • You have heart problems.
  • You weigh less than 45 kg.
