Relief of symptoms such as frustration (nicotine craving), difficulty in concentration, and restlessness during smoking cessation
When you want to smoke, chew one piece at a time as slowly as 30 to 60 minutes, at intervals of a certain period of time. Use the table (right) as a guide for daily dose. Usually, start with 4 to 12 pieces per day, and increase or decrease as needed.
However, the total daily dose should not be over 24 pieces. When you get used to quitting smoking (around 1 month), decrease the daily dose by 1 to 2 pieces per week. When the daily dose becomes 1 to 2 pieces, stop using this medicine.
Duration of use of this medicine is set as 3 months.
