For those smoking more than 20 cigarettes a day it is recommended that treatment be started with HABITROL Step 1 Patch
Instructions for use
HABITROL should be applied as soon as it has been removed from the see-through child- resistant pouch. The sachet has a pre-cut edge to facilitate removal of the HABITROL Patch contents. Following removal of the metallic backing, the HABITROL Patch should be immediately applied to a clean non-hairy, dry area of intact skin on the trunk or upper arm. The patch should be held in position for 10-20 seconds with the palm of the hand. A different site of application should be chosen each day. One should allow several days to elapse before using the same area again.
Hands should be washed thoroughly after application of HABITROL Patch to avoid irritation of the eyes with nicotine from the fingers.
