  • How to Use Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges and Tips to Help You Quit Smoking.
  • PLANNING YOUR SUCCESS
  • YES! YOU WANT TO QUIT.
  • Wonderful. You've made the most important decision of all, to stop smoking. And by choosing Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges to help you, you're starting on the right path. Now remember, using Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges doesn't just mean taking a Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenge. It means setting and following a program like the one we suggest in this User's Guide.
  • Your own success depends on your effort, your level of addiction to tobacco, and your commitment to following your program.
  • LET'S FACE IT.
  • Quitting smoking isn't easy! You or someone you know may have tried unsuccessfully. That's okay. It's hard to stop smoking the first time you try. The important part is to learn from your previous attempts, consider what went wrong and keep trying to quit until you succeed. Look to this User's Guide for support as you undergo this terrific task. The guide includes important information on how to use Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges and also gives you tips to help you stop smoking. Refer back to it often for advice, answers, and encouragement to help you stay on track.
  • GET MOTIVATED. STAY MOTIVATED.
  • Everyone has a reason for quittingu2013whether you're concerned about your health, your appearance, family or peer pressure, or the effect of secondhand smoke on your loved onesu2013all of the above, or something else entirely. Whatever your reasons, write them down. There's a wallet card on the bottom of this User's Guide. Write your reasons on the card and carry it with you. When you have an urge to smoke or experience a difficult moment it can help you focus on your reasons for quitting. Lots of people quit with a co-worker, spouse or friend and use them as a quitting buddy. You can help each other out by providing extra encouragement in tough moments.
  • There may be support groups in your area for people trying to quit. Call your local chapter of the American Lung Association, American Cancer Society or American Heart Association for further information. Toll free phone numbers are printed on the wallet card on the bottom of this User's Guide.
  • UNDERSTANDING THE DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD.
  • Smoking has two addictive components, a physical and a mental need for the nicotine in tobacco. You need to conquer both to succeed. Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges can ease your physical nicotine addiction. But your readiness and resolve are necessary to help overcome the mental side of your cigarette dependence. So once you're ready, it's time to begin. But first, read and consider the following important warnings.
  • IMPORTANT WARNINGS
  • This product is only for those who want to stop smoking.
  • If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, only use this medicine on the advice of your health care provider.
  • Ask a doctor before use if you have
  • Ask a doctor or pharmacist before use if you are
  • Stop use and ask a doctor if
  • Keep out of reach of children and pets.
  • Nicotine lozenges may have enough nicotine to make children and pets sick. If you need to remove the lozenge, wrap it in paper and throw away in the trash. In case of overdose, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away. (1-800-222-1222)
  • YOUu2019RE READY TO START.
  • Okay, you're ready. To become a non-smoker, start today. Now before you do anything else, you have a bit of planning to do. Read this User's Guide all the way through. You want to make sure you bought the right dose to start. If you typically smoke use the 4 mg Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges. If you smoke use the 2 mg Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges.
  • Next, plan your quitting schedule. Get a calendar to follow your progress and mark the following four important dates (see the reminders on the left side of this leaflet).
  • THE PROGRAM
  • STEP 1. (Weeks 1-6) Starting on your quit date it's best to use at least 9 Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges each day, one every 1-2 hours.
  • First choose the day you plan to quit (make it soon). Place the Step 1 reminder on this date. That's the day you will start using Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges to calm your cravings for nicotine and help you stay smoke free. Prior to the quit date, get rid of all your cigarettes to remove temptations and make it more difficult to start smoking again.
  • Use a Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenge every 1 to 2 hours and at least 9 lozenges each day for the first 6 weeks to help prevent unexpected cravings and improve your chances of quitting. Place the lozenge in your mouth and allow the lozenge to slowly dissolve (about 20-30 minutes). Minimize swallowing. You may feel a warm or tingling sensation. Occasionally move the lozenge from one side of your mouth to the other until completely dissolved (about 20 to 30 minutes). n
  • STEP 2. (The next three weeks, that is weeks 7-9). At the beginning of week 7 start using fewer Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges, one every 2-4 hours.
  • After six weeks, you should wait a little longer between lozenges, one lozenge every two to four hours. This will help you gradually use fewer Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges. Put the Step 2 reminder on the first day of week 7 to help remind you when to start reducing the number of Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges you take.
  • STEP 3. (The last three weeks, that is weeks 10-12). At the beginning of week 10, reduce Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenge use even further, one every 4-8 hours.
  • At the beginning of week 10 further decrease the number of Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges you use each day to reduce the amount of nicotine you get. You should do this by using one lozenge every 4 to 8 hours. Put the Step 3 reminder on the first day of week 10 so you know when you should be starting this last step to becoming smoke and nicotine-free.
  • END. At the end of week 12 youu2019ll complete Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenge therapy.
  • Put the u201cEX-SMOKERu201d reminder on your calendar on the date 12 weeks after the day you stopped smoking and started using Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges.
  • BE PREPARED.
  • Since smoking is an addiction, it is hard to quit. Even after you stop, there will be times when you WANT a cigarette, sometimes strongly. (See also section on u201cChallenges To Watch Foru201d). The best defense is to be prepared. Plan now for handling tough times so you don't give in. For example: think about situations when you usually get a craving for cigarettes or where you think you might experience strong cravings. Try to avoid these situations where you can (for example, avoid spending time with smokers, or drinking alcohol, if those things tempt you to smoke).
  • Change your habits. For example, take your coffee break somewhere else. Take a walk. In other words, break the association between your usual habits and cigarettes.
  • If you do encounter a situation where you feel a strong craving, fight it! Take a break from the situation; keep yourself busy or distracted with other activities. Remind yourself why you want to quit, and above all, remind yourself that having u201cjust oneu201d really will hurt your goal of quitting!
  • To prepare for tough situations, assemble a u201csurvival packageu201d u2013 items that can keep you distracted in case you get a craving. For example, you may include cinnamon gum or hard candy, relaxing music, and things to keep your hands busy like a smooth stone, paper clips, or a rubber ball.
  • Track your progress as you quit. Keep a journal. Write down how many pieces of Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges you use each day. Note if and when you get a craving. If you slip and have a cigarette, don't give up. Stop smoking again and get back on your program with Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges.
  • Establish your support network. Keep friends' and family members' phone numbers ready to get the moral support you need. Before quitting, ask friends and family to support and encourage you. Think of specific ways they can help.
  • Reward yourself. Set aside little gifts to yourself such as a CD or video, which you can earn by overcoming difficult hurdles.
  • HOW Nicotine Polacrilex LOZENGES WORK.
  • Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges are a form of Nicotine Replacement Therapy. They deliver nicotine to your body, temporarily relieving craving and nicotine withdrawal symptoms when you quit smoking. But unlike cigarettes, Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges deliver a lower, steady level of nicotine to your blood. When used as directed, Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges help you regulate, control, and gradually reduce your body's craving for nicotine.
  • The good news is that Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges contain no tar or carbon monoxide, and therefore don't present the same medical risks as cigarettes.
  • However, the lozenges still deliver nicotine, the addictive ingredient in cigarettes. And for some people the nicotine in Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges can occasionally cause mouth or throat irritation, headaches, nausea, hiccups, upset stomach or dizziness.
  • USING Nicotine Polacrilex LOZENGES PROPERLY.
  • Remember, This lozenge is designed to deliver nicotine into your system through the lining of your mouth, not in your stomach like most other medicines. It is important to minimize swallowing the dissolved medicine in these lozenges so that it can be properly absorbed in your mouth.
  • Do not use more than one lozenge at a time, or many lozenges one after another since this can cause hiccups, heartburn, nausea or other side effects.
  • Read all the following instructions before using Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges. Refer to them often to make sure you're using Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges correctly.
  • IMPORTANT: Don't worry or give up if you do not like the taste of the lozenge at first. Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges are a medication, not a candy. Most people get used to the taste after a day or two. Remember, staying with the plan will help you quit. Begin using Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges on your quit date.
  • To reduce cravings or urges to smoke and other withdrawal symptoms, use Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges according to the following dosage schedule.
  • Do not use more than 5 lozenges in 6 hours. Do not use more than 20 lozenges per day.
  • FOR THE BEST CHANCE OF QUITTING,
  • Do not eat or drink 15 minutes before using or while the lozenge is in your mouth.
  • CUTTING BACK ON YOUR Nicotine Polacrilex LOZENGE USAGE.
  • The whole reason for using Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges is to decrease and slowly eliminate your need for nicotine, while you control cravings. So, as the above schedule indicates, you should gradually reduce the amount of Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges you take per day. Some people find it easier to reduce by substituting ordinary sweets or sugar free candy for some of the Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges they would normally use. As time goes on, you can increase the number of pieces of candy as you further reduce your use of Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges. It is important to complete treatment. If you still feel the need to use Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges to keep from smoking after week 12, talk with your health care provider.
  • MAKE QUITTING EASIER ON YOURSELF.
  • Soon after your quit date, parties, bars, celebrations, and socializing may all tempt you to smoke. Please remember these tips to help you resist those urges and stay smoke-free.
  • The Day You Quit Smoking:
  • REMEMBER: Urges to smoke are temporary. They'll pass, even if you don't smoke.
  • WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT.
  • As you are successful at staying smoke-free, initially you will probably notice a few of the following typical withdrawal symptoms, so don't be surprised. Use of Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges reduces these symptoms, but may not eliminate them entirely. They will go away with time. Stay focused on your goal of becoming an ex-smoker. Research shows that if you manage to avoid all smoking in the first week (that means not having a single puff), your chances of success increase dramatically.
  • The First Few Days.
  • After a Couple of Weeks.
  • Have you noticed that your sense of taste and smell has improved? You are probably coughing less and finding it easier to breathe. You've also probably noticed your withdrawal symptoms are subsiding (though don't worry if they're still there: they last longer for some people). These are all positive signs that your body is getting used to your success at stopping smoking.
  • By The End of The First Month.
  • What If You Do Slip And Smoke?
  • u201cWhat if I relapse?u201d One cigarette is a slip-up, but it's not the end of the quit effort. Everybody slips at something. The key is this: forgive yourself and stop at that one cigarette. Don't let this slip ruin your good intentions, keep at your quit attempt. So, throw out your cigarettes and continue with your quit attempt, keeping in mind what went wrong and led to the slip.
  • If you do go back to smoking, certainly don't throw out your Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges. Keep them for the next time you're ready to quit. In fact research says that even if you are back to smoking regularly the best thing you can do is learn and try again.
  • Try to understand the reason you had those cigarettes that made you slip. Thatu2019s important, because now you can plan better to deal with these moments next time. Itu2019s true you stumbled, but donu2019t think of yourself as having failed. Encourage yourself by treating the last attempt as a learning experience, even a u201ctrial runu201d for the real thing.
  • Take a look at the usage instructions and check that you used the Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges correctly and for the full 12 weeks of the program. When you try again make sure you use enough and the right way. That way youu2019ll be best equipped to deal with the unexpected cravings.
  • Donu2019t forget; quitting isn't easy and it takes practice to do anything. Stopping smoking is no different.
  • YOUu2019VE MADE IT.
  • Once your twelve week quitting program is over, youu2019ve taken your last Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenge. Now you are both cigarette and nicotine-free. Get up and give yourself a standing ovation. We mean it. Do you realize that you have just done a really difficult thing?
  • Nowu2019s a good time to think back on the process. Think of all your reasons for quitting smoking. Think of your goals. Think of how theyu2019re going to be a reality now.
  • Think of what youu2019re going to do with your newly liberated cigarette money. The places you can now go smoke-free. Think of the extra time you may have added to your life and what you can do with it. And although you may still experience the occasional temptation, and cigarettes still want you back, think positively. Think forward. And consider yourself a proud non-smoker.
  • FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS.
  • 1. When I stop smoking and start using Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges how will I feel?
  • Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges help reduce cravings, but be prepared for some nicotine withdrawal symptoms. After you stop smoking they can begin almost at once and are normally at their strongest during the first three or four days. For some people, any of the following may occur:
  • Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges are designed to reduce the craving for nicotine you used to satisfy with cigarettes. Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges can also help provide relief from other withdrawal symptoms such as irritability and nervousness.
  • 2. Are Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges just swapping one type of nicotine addiction for another?
  • Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges do contain nicotine, however there is probably less nicotine in your daily dose of lozenges than in your cigarettes. Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges give you enough nicotine to help you combat the physical withdrawal symptoms so you can cope with the mental side of stopping smoking. Also, since the nicotine from the lozenges goes into your bloodstream more slowly, it produces less of the effects of nicotine that people find rewarding. In fact, when used as directed in the 12 week program, Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges gradually wean you off your dependence for both nicotine and cigarettes.
  • 3. Can Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges do any harm?
  • Some people with conditions like heart disease or people taking prescription medicine for asthma or depression should not use this product without talking to their doctor - check the IMPORTANT WARNINGS on the front of this leaflet. You may also experience side effects such as hiccups, mouth or throat irritation, heartburn or other stomach problems such as nausea especially if Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges are chewed or swallowed. In any case, Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges do not contain the tar, carbon monoxide, and other toxins present in cigarette smoke.
  • 4. Will I put on weight?
  • In the first couple of months after quitting smoking, some people do put on a few pounds. But think of it this way. Overall, youu2019ll be healthier and look better. You can always tackle your weight by changing your diet and increasing the amount you exercise once you have gotten through the difficult part of stopping smoking.
  • 5. Does taking Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges cost more than smoking?
  • If you normally smoke a pack and a half a day, your total cost of using Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenges during the 12-week period should be less than smoking. But guess what? After youu2019ve finished the Nicotine Polacrilex Lozenge program all that money you used to spend on cigarettes is now savings. And think of the health issues youu2019ll hopefully be able to avoid.
  • 6. What if I have a cigarette and start smoking?
  • Don't panic. First, don't think badly of yourself. Throw away your cigarettes and forgive yourself. Then think about what went wrong and get back on track. In fact people who have already tried to stop smoking are more likely to be successful the next time.
  • CHALLENGES TO WATCH FOR.
  • Once you quit smoking, you are likely to experience periodic, and sometimes intense, temptations to smoke. Certain situations present special challenges. Some common ones include:
  • Stress and upset.
  • When you are feeling stressed or upset, you may think a cigarette will make everything better. It wonu2019t. Find other ways to relax and unwind.
  • The blues.
  • You may be especially vulnerable when you feel bored or blue. Remember that having a cigarette will just make you feel worse.
  • Smoking cues.
  • Seeing cigarettes or watching other people smoke can trigger temptation. Remember that you choose not to smoke anymore.
  • Alcohol.
  • Drinking and smoking seem to go together, and alcoholic beverages may weaken your resolve, making drinking dangerous to your quit effort. Avoid drinking early in your quit effort, and try to drink with non-smokers.
  • Automatic slips.
  • Sometimes you may find yourself preparing to smoke without even realizing it. Watch out for those moments when your hand seems to u2018automaticallyu2019 reach for a cigarette.
  • Watch out for these situations: they can trigger a relapse. You probably know which one(s) are most dangerous for you; plan ahead to deal with the situation effectively. Always remember that youu2019re trying to break a habit, and the most important thing is to do something to combat the urge in these situations.
