Nicotine patches like NicoDerm CQ are just one form of nicotine replacement therapy. They look like adhesive bandages and stick onto the skin in the same way. The sticky side of the patch contains a layer of nicotine. This delivers nicotine in a steady stream, helps reduce the nicotine cravings that come from quitting and helps you use your determination to quit smoking.
NicoDerm CQ features Extended Release SmartControl® Technology. This technology ensures that nicotine won’t be delivered all at once, or run out too soon. It starts to release nicotine immediately, followed by a steady flow of nicotine all day long. The result? A unique patch that helps prevent the urge to smoke, all day long when worn for 24 hours. NicoDerm CQ has even been shown to help prevent morning cravings when you first wake up.

Starting NicoDerm CQ? Choose the right step for you
Since different smokers are used to different levels of nicotine, NicoDerm CQ comes in two starting strengths. Depending on how many cigarettes you smoke each day, you’ll start at either Step 1 or Step 2.
Like any medicine, NicoDerm CQ works best if you use it properly. Make sure to follow the directions on the label and apply the NicoDerm CQ patch the way it was intended. When used as directed, NicoDerm CQ can double your chances of quitting smoking.*
