Frequently Asked Questions

NicoDerm CQ is a unique patch with Extended Release SmartControl® Technology that helps prevent the urge to smoke all day long. NicoDerm CQ supports you through your day by delivering therapeutic nicotine via the patch’s specially designed layers. This technology ensures the nicotine in the patch is not delivered all at once or run out too soon. NicoDerm CQ helps reduce the withdrawal symptoms associated with quitting smoking.

Each NicoDerm CQ patch contains a special nicotine rate-controlling membrane that controls the release of nicotine into your bloodstream through your skin. The level of nicotine uptake is lower than that of cigarettes and the program is designed to allow your body to gradually adjust to having less nicotine until you don’t need any.

Because the active ingredient in NicoDerm CQ is a low, therapeutic dose of nicotine, side effects can include vivid dreams. Some users may experience skin irritation with use of the NicoDerm CQ patch. Carefully read the user guide inside your package for a complete list of possible side effects.

No. NicoDerm CQ patches do not contain any latex.

You can purchase NicoDerm CQ directly from Nicorette.com or in store at all major retailers, over-the-counter and other online retailers.
