What QUITSURE is used for?

  • It can be used to relieve the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal and reduce the cravings for nicotine that you get when you try to stop smoking
  • When you stop smoking, or cut down the number of cigarettes you smoke, your body misses the nicotine that you have been absorbing from the smoke. You may experience unpleasant feelings and a strong desire to smoke (“craving”)

For Chewing Gum Tablet:

  • Chew one piece of gum when you feel the urge to smoke
  • It is important to chew the gum correctly, not like ordinary chewing-gum
  • Follow the instructions below and do not swallow the gum

Chewing technique

  • Chew one piece of gum slowly until the taste becomes strong
  • Rest between your gum and cheek
  • Chew again when taste has faded
  • Repeat this chewing routine for about 30 minutes 

How much to take

  • Most people use 8 – 12 pieces of 2mg gum a day
  • Do not use more than 1 piece of gum at a time or more than 25 pieces of 2mg gum a day
  • Remember not to drink certain drinks 15 minutes before chewing the gum
  • The gum can stick to and very rarely damage dentures or other dental work. You may prefer to use a patch or lozenge
  • After 3 months, you should try to gradually reduce the number of pieces of gum chewed each day
  • You should stop using the gum when you are only taking 1-2 pieces of gum per day

Children and adolescents (12 -18 years)

  • It should only use in children for 12 weeks. If longer is required, then talk to your doctor

 Children under 12 years should not use the gum

  • It should not be used in children, unless advised by a doctor

For Microtabs/Sublingual Tablet:

  • Check that the foil is not broken before use
  • The tablets must be dissolved slowly under the tongue (about 30 minutes)
  • This will release the nicotine, which you absorb through the lining of your mouth
  • Do not chew or swallow them

When to use the micro tab

Follow the instructions in the table.

  • The table shows you how many micro tabs to use, when to use them, how to use them, and the maximum number you should use each day
  • The number of micro tabs you use each day will depend on how many cigarettes you smoked and how strong they were
  • If you smoke 20 cigarettes or less per day, you should use one micro tab every hour, although you may want to increase to two micro tabs every hour if one is not relieving your cravings
  • If you smoke more than 20 cigarettes per day you should use two micro tabs every hour. You must not use more than 40 micro tabs a day

Stopping immediately

  • The idea is to stop smoking immediately and use the microtabs to relieve the cravings to smoke. After achieving this you then stop using the microtabs
  • There is a difference in how you stop depending on whether you are aged between 12 and 17 years or 18 years and over.
  • Make sure you follow the age range applicable to you

Adults of 18 years and over

  • After achieving this you then give up cigarettes completely while using the microtabs. Finally, you give up using the microtabs.
  • There is a difference in how you stop depending on whether you are aged between 12 and 17 years or 18 years and over. Make sure you follow the age range applicable to you
