What Nicorette Microtab is and what it is used for

NICORETTE Microtab is a nicotine replacement therapy (NRT). It is used to relieve withdrawal symptoms and reduce the cravings for nicotine that you get when you try to stop smoking, or when you are cutting down the number of cigarettes you smoke while trying to stop smoking. To help cut down or quit smoking you should also try to use a behavioural support programme to increase your chances of success.

IMPORTANT: NICORETTE Microtab is a sublingual tablet which means it must be dissolved under the tongue and NOT swallowed or chewed.
