What is Nicorette Microtab?

Nicorette Microtab is a treatment that helps someone who quit smoking. These tablets contain nicotine, the same as cigarettes, and help someone who quit smoking over time. This treatment is known as Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT). NRT is a common form of treatment that works to slowly reduce nicotine intake over time to reduce cravings and help to quit smoking altogether.


What causes Nicotine addiction?

Addiction to Nicotine is the result of using cigarettes over time and the tobacco having an effect. When someone smokes a cigarette, the tobacco-containing nicotine gets into the lungs. From there it gets to the brain, where it affects. Nicotine into the brain causes it to release neurotransmitters that affect mood and behaviour. The neurotransmitter released by the brain due to nicotine is dopamine. Dopamine improves the mood and gives off the feeling of pleasure. This is what causes cravings, as the body feels the need for dopamine. Cravings can be caused by triggers, which can be actions or routines. Knowing what these triggers are can be a help when it comes to quitting smoking and reducing cravings.


Who are these Nicorette tablets suitable for?

These tablets are suitable to be used by adults and children aged 12 and over. Anyone who is allergic to the ingredients contained in the tablets should not use them. This treatment should not be used and instead of a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist should be consulted if any of the following applies to you:

  • Are in the hospital because of heart disease
  • Have a stomach ulcer
  • Have kidney or liver disease
  • Have long-term throat disease
  • Have an overactive thyroid gland
  • Are diabetic

You should also seek advice before using if you are using any other form of medication.


Can someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding use these tablets?

Someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding who is looking to quit smoking should try to do so without using any form of NRT first. If this does not work, then look at using the treatment. Though a medical professional should be consulted for advice before using.


How should Nicorette Microtab be used?

These tablets should be placed under the tongue and allowed to dissolve. Do not chew or swallow them. The number of tablets you should use depends on the number of cigarettes that you have been smoking a day. If you smoke less than 20 cigarettes a day then use only 1 tablet an hour, otherwise, use 2 tablets every hour. The recommended amount per day is 8-24, with no more than 40 taken. Adults aged 18 and over should only use this treatment for a maximum of 9 months, anyone under that age who can use them should only do so for 12 weeks. The method to use these tablets is to aim for a date to quit smoking. Then take the tablets for 12 weeks, 8 weeks for 12-18-year-olds, reducing the dosage over time. Use these tablets instead of a cigarette when you feel cravings.
