Nicorette Mini Lozenges

People who want to quit smoking may be considering the Nicorette® Lozenge (nicotine lozenge). This nonprescription product is available in two strengths (2 mg and 4 mg) and comes in two forms (regular lozenges and Nicorette mini Lozenges). The mini lozenges are smaller, more portable, and dissolve faster than the regular ones.
 
Regardless of which form you use, the Nicorette Lozenge works by releasing a controlled amount of nicotine as it dissolves in your mouth. This helps reduce nicotine withdrawal symptoms, such as cravings. The dose will depend on how soon you smoke a cigarette after you wake up in the morning. The number of lozenges you use each day will slowly be reduced over a 12-week period, which gradually weans your body off nicotine.
