About

A Nicotex Patch is a trans-dermal/skin patch that helps you quit smoking using the principle of Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT). The patch when placed on your body gradually releases nicotine throughout the day. Over the 12 week period, you will gradually reduce your nicotine intake and finally get back to life without dependence on nicotine.

Smokers are 60% more likely to abstain from smoking after using a nicotine patch1. It has a 24-hour Smart Release system that consistently releases nicotine into your body throughout the day2. It works on the step-down dosing approach that gradually decreases the nicotine intake over 12 weeks, helping you to quit smoking1
