NiQuitinMinis 1.5mg and NiQuitinMinins 4mg provide clear instructions tailored to different scenarios for adults and young people aged 12 years and over. These instructions encompass various cessation strategies, whether one is aiming to quit smoking immediately, gradually cut down on smoking, or navigate short periods without cigarettes. For those under 18 years old not yet ready for immediate cessation, consulting a healthcare professional is advised. Regardless of the approach chosen, users are reminded not to exceed 15 lozenges per day and to follow specific dosages depending on their smoking habits. The guidance emphasises the importance of seeking support from healthcare professionals and incorporating behavioural support programs to enhance the chances of successful cessation. Additionally, the leaflet addresses scenarios where individuals may need to manage cravings in environments where smoking is prohibited or during short-term abstinence, providing strategies for effectively utilising NiQuitin Minis to resist the urge to smoke.

Nicotine Replacement Therapy NRT products, like all medications, may entail side effects, primarily stemming from nicotine intake, akin to those experienced from smoking cigarettes. However, not everyone experiences these effects, and at recommended doses, NiQuitin Minis typically do not induce severe side effects. Ceasing smoking itself may trigger symptoms such as dizziness, headaches, sleep disturbances, and cold-like manifestations, while withdrawal symptoms like depression, irritability, and anxiety might also emerge. Listed below are potential side effects categorized by their likelihood of occurrence: Very common effects, affecting more than 1 in 10 individuals, include minor irritation in the mouth or tongue and potential nausea. Common effects, affecting between 1 in 10 and 1 in 100 people, encompass symptoms such as a sore throat, vomiting, stomach discomfort, diarrhoea, and heartburn. Less common side effects, impacting between 1 in 100 and 1 in 1000 individuals, consist of nervousness, depression, palpitations, increased heart rate, chest pain, rash, and feelings of tiredness or general malaise. For a full list of side effects and further information please refer to the Patient Information Leaflet.

During pregnancy and breastfeeding, the risks associated with smoking are particularly harmful to both the mother and the baby. Smoking during pregnancy can lead to various complications such as poor foetal growth, lung damage, premature birth, and stillbirth. Thus, quitting smoking is paramount for improving maternal and foetal health, with earlier cessation yielding better outcomes. While it’s optimal to quit smoking without the aid of Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT), if quitting  without assistance proves challenging, using NRT is safer for both the mother and the baby compared to continued smoking. NRT, containing nicotine but lacking the harmful toxins found in cigarette smoke, poses a reduced risk. If advised by a healthcare professional to use NRT during pregnancy, it’s recommended to commence as early as possible and ideally limit its use to 2 to 3 months, prioritising cessation of smoking above all else. Opting for NRT gum or lozenges over patches is preferred during pregnancy, as it allows for better control over nicotine absorption. For breastfeeding mothers, quitting smoking without NRT is preferred, but if necessary, NRT gum or lozenges are recommended over patches to manage cravings as they arise. Breastfeeding just before consuming NRT helps minimize nicotine levels in breast milk, thereby reducing exposure to the infant. Overall, prioritising smoking cessation and seeking healthcare guidance are essential for ensuring the health and well-being of both mother and child during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
