Nicorette Lozenge Medication Information

Available without a prescription, the Nicorette® Lozenge (nicotine lozenge) is used to help people stop smoking. It comes in the form of a lozenge that dissolves in the mouth. Your initial dosage will depend on how soon after waking up that you typically smoke your first cigarette of the day.
 
The Nicorette Lozenge works by releasing a controlled amount of nicotine as it dissolves in your mouth. Through this action, the medicine minimizes nicotine withdrawal symptoms and helps to gradually wean you off nicotine.
 
Although this is a nonprescription medication, you may want to discuss the Nicorette Lozenge's safety information with your healthcare provider to help determine if this product is a safe and effective choice for your particular situation, especially if you have heart problems, diabetes, or high blood pressure.
