QuitX® patches work by slowly and constantly releasing nicotine into your body through the skin. QuitX® patches come in three different strengths to help you step down gradually over the course of the program.
Each patch has been designed to be applied once a day on the shoulders, upper arm, chest or back.
Each patch delivers
Step 1 = 21 mg nicotine per 24 hours
Step 2 = 14 mg nicotine per 24 hours
Step 3 = 7 mg nicotine per 24 hours
Applying QuitX® patches
Each day, apply a fresh QuitX® patch to a clean, dry area of skin on your upper body (back, chest, upper arms and hips are all good). Choose a fresh site each day. The site shouldn’t be hairy and shouldn’t be freshly shaved.
Press the patch on with the flat of your hand and keep the pressure on for at least 20 seconds. The whole patch should have good skin contact to work properly. Correctly applied, the patch is waterproof so you can leave it in place even when you exercise, shower, bathe or swim.
