What is NRT?
Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) is a medically approved method for quitting smoking successfully. The dosage of nicotine is steadily reduced over the duration of the course allowing the body to gradually adjust to nicotine independence.

Sample Dosage Specifications
The dosage is quite simple. You gradually reduce your dependence on nicotine in 3 months. Use a lozenge instead of a cigarette whenever you have an urge to smoke. Below is a sample dosage schedule for NIXITTM 2mg –
Use a NIXITTM Nicotine Lozenge every 1 to 2 hours and at least 9 lozenges each day for the first 6 weeks to help prevent unexpected cravings and improve your chances of quitting. After six weeks, you should wait a little longer between lozenges, one lozenge every two to four hours. This will help you gradually use fewer NIXITTM Nicotine Lozenges. At the beginning of week 10, reduce NIXITTM Nicotine Lozenge use even further, one every 4-8 hours.
By tapering the dose, body’s dependence on nicotine is gradually reduced until it no longer requires it, resulting in quitting.
Since NIXITTM Nicotine Lozenges contain nicotine, there is a probability that one may get addicted to these if not used as recommended. Hence, it is imperative that one follows the dosage regime to quit.
