Allow yourself time to put the patch on. Decide where you will put the patch. It is important to choose a hairless area of skin to make sure that it sticks properly. We recommend the front or side of the chest, the back or the upper arm. If it does not stick successfully to these areas you may try it on any other body site (such as the outer thighs or top of the buttocks). Avoid areas where the skin creases (such as over a joint) or where the skin folds when you move. Avoid skin which is red or irritated. Drug Class and Mechanism Nicotinell patches are used to help you stop smoking as part of an overall treatment programme. When you apply the patch to your skin, nicotine passes through your skin and into your body. The Nicotinell patch programme involves up to 3 steps; each with a different patch size. As your body adjusts to not smoking, you should gradually reduce the dose of Nicotinell over a period of up to a maximum of 12 weeks until you no longer need to use the patches.
