Lozenges should be used whenever there is an urge to smoke. Adult smokers 18 years and over: weeks 1 to 6: at least 9 lozenges but no more than 15 lozenges per day. Gradually reduce use so that by week 12, 1 to 2 lozenges a day are used only on occasions when strongly tempted to smoke. A healthcare professional should be consulted if unable to make a permanent quit attempt after 6 months. Allow lozenge to dissolve in the mouth, occasionally moving lozenge from one side to the other, until dissolved (about 20-30 minutes). Do not chew or swallow whole. Adolescents (12-17 years): should use the lozenges only on the advice of a healthcare professional. Under 12 years: not recommended.
