Product Information

Nicotine replacement therapy often provides sufficient nicotine when used as a single therapy. However, heavy smokers (more than 20 cigarettes a day), who experience breakthrough cravings, or those who have failed with single therapy may benefit from using combination therapy with patch and 2 mg gum or patch and inhaler. Read the patient information leaflet or talk to your pharmacist or doctor to decide which is the best approach for you.

When you stop smoking, your body misses the nicotine that you have been absorbing. You may experience unpleasant feelings and a strong desire to smoke (craving). This indicates that you were dependent on nicotine. When you apply a Nicorette Invisi Patch to the skin, nicotine is released and passes into your body through the skin. The nicotine released is sufficient to relieve the unpleasant nicotine withdrawal symptoms and your cravings to smoke. Please read the enclosed leaflet carefully before starting to use the product. 

If you have any heart, circulatory or stomach problems (including ulcers) ask your pharmacist or doctor before using Nicorette patches.

Do not use: 

  • if you are allergic to nicotine or any of the other ingredients of this medicine, 
  • if pregnant or breast-feeding unless advised by your doctor,
  • if you are a non-smoker or are under 18 years of age.

If you need any advice before starting to use this product, talk to your doctor, pharmacist or nurse.   In particular discuss if you are on any other medication or have other medical conditions. 

Use of the patch beyond 6 months is generally not recommended.

How to use this product

You are more likely to quit smoking when using this product with help from your doctor, pharmacist, a trained counsellor or a support programme. For further information please ring the national smokers quit line on 1800 201 203 or visit www.quit.ie. Do not exceed the stated dose.

Patch should be applied on waking and removed 16 hours later just before bedtime. For external use only. 

Choosing where to apply the patch

1. Before applying choose a completely clean, dry area of hairless skin on the front or side of the chest, upper arm or hip. 2. Avoid placing the patch onto any area of skin that is red, cut or irritated. 3. Do not apply oil or talcum powder to the skin before putting on the patch as this may prevent it from sticking properly. 4. It is important that you do not use the same area on two consecutive days to help avoid irritating that site.

How to apply the patch

1. Wash your hands before applying the patch. 2. Open the child resistant sachet by cutting along the edge with a pair of scissors. 3. Remove the patch from its sachet and then peel one part of the silvery aluminium backing away. Avoid touching the sticky surface of the patch with your fingers. 4. Carefully apply the sticky part of the patch to the chosen area of skin and then peel off the remaining half of the silvery aluminium backing foil. 5. Press the patch firmly onto the skin with your palm or finger tips. 6. Run your fingers around the edge to ensure it sticks firmly.

Removing and disposing of the patch

1. The patch should be removed before you go to bed as it is not designed to be worn when you go to sleep at night or for more than 16 hours each day. 2. After removal, the patch should be folded in half, sticky side inwards and placed inside the opened sachet or a piece of aluminium foil. 3. The patch should then be disposed of carefully in the household rubbish, out of reach of children and animals.

Always use this medicine exactly as described in this leaflet or as your doctor, nurse or pharmacist has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.
