Our expert advice in pharmacy
Warnings and other precautions for use:
To ensure the best chance of success, the use of this drug should be accompanied by a complete cessation of smoking.
Due to the pharmacological effects of nicotine, some diseases require medical advice and medical supervision: Liver and / or severe renal impairment; gastric or duodenal ulcer changing.
Nicotine is a toxic substance: Keep this medicine out of reach of children. In fact, the therapeutic dose intended for adults might cause serious poisoning or death in children.
It is recommended to fold the patch on himself before discarding.
If severe or persistent skin reaction, it is recommended to stop the treatment and use another pharmaceutical form (see Adverse Reactions).
Experimental studies in several species have shown no teratogenic or foetotoxic effect of nicotine administered with continuous flow, and this at maternally toxic doses. Under the same conditions of administration, fetal growth retardation is observed at even higher doses in one case, the mice but not in rats or rabbits. Clinically, yet limited number of observations show no deleterious impact, maternal or fetal, nicotine used in the indication of smoking cessation.
Smoking during pregnancy may be the cause of intrauterine growth retardation, fetal death in utero, a premature birth, small for gestational age, which seem to correlate with the importance of impregnation smoking and the period of pregnancy, as these effects are observed when smoking impregnation continues for the third quarter.
Nicotine provided by substitution treatment is not without deleterious effects on the fetus, as demonstrated by the hemodynamic consequences observed. However, it has no epidemiological study indicating the actual impact of nicotine provided by substitution treatment on the fetus or newborn.
In pregnant women, should always recommend a complete stop smoking without replacement therapy to nicotine.
In case of failure at a highly dependent patient, smoking cessation is possible with this medication. Indeed, the risk to the fetus, if continued smoking during pregnancy is probably higher than expected with nicotine replacement therapy, as is superimposed with tobacco exposure to polycyclic hydrocarbons and the carbon monoxide, and since nicotine exposure provided by the substitution treatment is less than or is not greater than that associated with tobacco consumption.
The goal is to achieve complete cessation or even substitution treatment, before the third trimester of pregnancy. Smoking cessation, with or without substitution treatment, should not be considered in isolation, but within the framework of a comprehensive care, taking into account the psycho-social context and other addictions optionally combined. It may be desirable to use a consultation specializing in smoking cessation.
In case of partial or complete failure of weaning, continued treatment with a nicotine substitute after the 6th month of pregnancy can only be considered case by case. One should keep in mind the specific effects of nicotine, which might sound on the fetus, especially when near term.
Given the consistency of nicotine concentrations with this form of substitution, breastfeeding is not recommended during treatment with this medicine.
Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction:
Tobacco may, by enzyme induction process due to aromatic hydrocarbons, decrease blood levels of certain drugs such as caffeine, theophylline, tricyclic antidepressants, flecainide, pentazocine.
The decision, a fortiori brutal, tobacco, especially on the occasion of taking this medicine, may increase the concentrations of these active ingredients, linked to the reversibility of the effect of enzyme induction.
For drugs with narrow therapeutic index, such as theophylline, smoking cessation should be accompanied, in addition to dose adjustment, a narrow, clinical or biological monitoring, information to the patient with risk of overdose.
Its specific, cardiovascular, neurological and endocrine pharmacological properties, nicotine may, like tobacco: result in increased concentrations of cortisol and catecholamines; require a dosage adjustment of nifedipine, beta blockers, insulin; reduce the effect of diuretics; slowing the rate of healing of gastric ulcers by H2 antihistamines; increase the incidence of adverse estroprogestatifs.
Transdermal nicotine can cause side effects similar to nicotine administered by other modes.
Systemic side effects: palpitations. Dizziness, headache. Nausea, vomiting. Insomnia, blurred dreamlike.
Local side effects: erythema and itching at the application site, rarely edema, burning sensation.
These effects are largely moderate majority and resolve spontaneously soon after system removal.
If severe or persistent skin reaction, it is recommended to stop the treatment and use another form of nicotine replacement.
Some symptoms such as dizziness, headache and insomnia may be related to smoking cessation.
An increase in the occurrence of oral ulcers can occur after smoking cessation. The causal relationship is not clear.
Nicotine overdose can occur if the patient had previously dealt with very low nicotine intake or if concomitant use of other treatments for smoking cessation based nicotine.
Overdose symptoms are those of acute nicotine poisoning include nausea, salivation, abdominal pain, diarrhea, sweating, headache, dizziness, loss of hearing and general weakness. At high doses can appear hypotension, weak and irregular pulse, breathing difficulties, prostration, circulatory collapse and convulsions.
The doses of nicotine tolerated by smoking subjects during treatment can cause acute poisoning can be fatal in young children.
What to do in case of overdose:
The nicotine administration should be discontinued immediately and symptomatic treatment should be initiated.
Assisted ventilation and oxygen therapy will be initiated if necessary.

transdermal device (patch) contains nicotine, the main active substance in tobacco; it passes through the skin, gains blood and acts on the nervous system, thus allowing the smoker not to feel the symptoms due to the cessation of smoking.
It is used exclusively in nicotine-dependent smokers, that is, who swallow the smoke and can not do without smoking for more than a few hours.
- non-smoker or occasional smoker,
- extensive skin disease that does not allow the patch to stick.
Precautions are necessary in case of stomach or duodenal ulcer , renal insufficiency or liver failure . In these situations, prior medical consultation is essential before using this medication.
Do not use other medicines containing nicotine without medical advice, such as chewing gums.
Do not leave the new or used stamp within the reach of children: unintentional application can cause serious accidents. Fold the stamp before discarding.
overdose may appear. Contact your doctor in case of any doubt.
Tobacco use in pregnant women may cause fetal growth retardation. Stopping tobacco is always desirable. In women who are highly dependent on nicotine, the use of this medication may be an aid, but the effects of nicotine alone on the fetus are poorly understood. This drug has the advantage of not exposing the fetus to other toxic substances present in tobacco smoke. In summary: if the ideal is not to smoke and not to expose the fetus to nicotine intake, the use of this drug is a lesser evil compared to tobacco.
Nicotine passes into breast milk, and breast-feeding is not recommended during treatment.
the patch .
The strongest dosage is for large smokers or nicotine-rich cigarette smokers; a high dependence on nicotine may also lead moderate smokers to prefer strong dosage.
In practice, it is useful to know the signs of under or overdose to adapt the choice of dosage after 1 or 2 days of treatment:
- the overdose results in the condition of the smoker who has smoked too much and is mainly reflected in a nauseous condition and headaches. Difficulty in sight or hearing, trembling, dizziness are also possible;
- an under-dosage causes symptoms of lack: irritability, nervousness, stomach cramps (kind of painful hunger), difficulty concentrating.
Apply the patch to a dry, low-haired area with no skin lesions. Release the adhesive surface and carefully apply the stamp by pressing the entire surface. Change location every day.
- Adult: the stamp is placed in the morning after the toilet. It should normally be kept until the next day.
Nicotine taken by way skin to replace the cigarette has the same cardiovascular harmful than that in tobacco. Only the risk of lung cancer disappears. When smoking cessation is motivated by urgent medical reasons: recent infarction , arteritis , gastritis or ulcer , it is preferable to stop the absorption of nicotine in all its forms.
Like all smoke-free methods used to help smokers, this drug can only be effective when the will to quit is personal and accompanied by strong motivation. It is this motivation that will make it possible to fight against the desire to smoke, without being forced to make constant appeal to the will that dulls over time. A cessation of lasting tobacco in the smoker assumes that the smoker considers tobacco to be a poison, an unacceptable addiction. It must be done to the idea that it will never smoke, from the beginning of weaning. Every day without tobacco must be experienced as a release, not as a calvary. The smoker who is in this state of mind is a good candidate for definitive weaning.
Stopping smoking, which is a real drug, causes many problems: weight gain is frequent, concentration disorders can last several weeks. A mild depressive condition is possible. Weight gain should be fought by a diet, and if possible by a sports program that has the advantage of reconciling the smoker with his body. Do not hesitate to consult your doctor in case of difficulty; his advice and experience will be invaluable in the fight against relapses.
Keeping the patch at night helps to fight the symptoms of lack at the rising. Nevertheless, the night port can cause sleep disturbances. In this case, it may be preferable to remove the patch at bedtime.
Remember to wash hands after application and avoid contact with eyes or nose.
Also: palpitations , headaches, insomnia, feeling dizzy , dreams of dreams, nausea, vomiting.
Arterial disease favored by smoking and most often localized to the legs. It is characterized by a thickening of the arterial walls which interferes with blood circulation and causes pain during walking (intermittent claudication). Lower limb arteritis increases the risk of myocardial infarction and requires medication. At an advanced stage, it can be treated surgically.
Synonym: Occlusive arteriopathy of the lower limbs.
Psychic or physical need caused by taking certain natural or medicinal substances. This condition may be accompanied, at cessation of the catch, by various symptoms, grouped under the term of withdrawal syndrome.
System, sometimes called patch or patch, allowing the absorption of a drug through the skin: it ensures the diffusion of the active substance to the blood vessels of the dermis. The substance then circulates in the blood and can act as if it had been swallowed or injected. This device avoids the first-pass effect of the liver.
A part of the intestine into which food from the stomach penetrates.
State of moral suffering associating a demotivation, a fatigue, a feeling of uselessness, of self-depreciation. In the absence of treatment, the depressive state may develop into a serious depression with a feeling of incurability, guilt, and a suicidal risk.
Inflammation of the stomach favored by stress, tobacco, alcohol and certain drugs such as aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs.
Destruction of part of the cardiac muscle (myocardium), deprived of blood by obstruction of its arteries.
Inability of the liver to perform its function, which is essentially the elimination of some waste, but also the synthesis of many biological substances essential to the body: albumin, cholesterol and coagulation factors (vitamin K, etc.).
Inability of the kidneys to eliminate waste or medicinal substances. Advanced renal insufficiency does not necessarily result in a decrease in the amount of urine excreted. Only a blood test and creatinine dosage may reveal this disease.
Abnormal perception of irregular heartbeat.
Taking an excessive amount of a drug exposes you to an increase in the intensity of adverse effects, or even to the appearance of particular adverse effects.
This overdose may result from accidental or voluntary poisoning for suicide, so consult your local Poison Control Center (listed in the appendix to the book). However, in most cases, overdose is the result of an error in the understanding of the prescription, or the search for an increase in efficacy by exceeding the recommended dosage. Finally, untimely self-medication may lead to excessive absorption of the same substance contained in different drugs. Some drugs are particularly prone to this risk because they are (wrongly) considered to be harmless: vitamins A and D, aspirin, etc. Stopping or decreasing drug intake helps to remove the disorders associated with an overdose.
Trouble felt by a person with an illness. The same symptom can translate different diseases and the same disease does not necessarily give the same symptoms in all the patients.
Injury of skin, mucous membranes or cornea.
- Leg ulcer: chronic wound due to poor circulation of blood.
- Gastroduodenal ulcer: a localized wound in the mucosa of the stomach or duodenum due to excess acidity and very often to the presence of a bacterium (Helicobacter pylori). The ulcer is favored by stress, alcohol, smoking and certain medications (aspirin, NSAIDs, etc.).
fear of heights
Symptom that can mean an impression of loss of balance (common sense) or, more strictly, a sense of rotation on oneself or the environment (medical sense).
- Pathway (route of administration) used to administer drugs: oral, sublingual, subcutaneous, intramuscular, intravenous, intradermal, transdermal.
- Set of hollow organs allowing the passage of air (respiratory tract), food (digestive tract), urine (urinary tract), bile (bile ducts), etc.

Stopping smoking as soon as possible results in immediate health benefits. It's never too late to quit even if you've smoked a long time and a lot.
As soon as you stop smoking:
· You will not absorb the irritating and toxic substances of cigarettes,
· You will see some improvements: progressive disappearance of headaches, cough, irritation of the throat, shortness of breath,
· You will often have the satisfaction of regaining better sleep, food flavor, odor and improve your physical performance,
· You will decrease your risk of developing lung cancer or cardiovascular disease.
Tobacco addiction is twofold:
· Psychological dependence:
Smoking a cigarette involves a ritual of automatic and repetitive gestures associated with particular circumstances (pleasure, response to stress, intellectual stimulation, support for morale, need for a gesture of conviviality). This is psychological and behavioral dependence.
· Physical dependence:
The need for the nicotine body is due to the effects of this substance on the nervous system. This is physical dependence. Failure to satisfy this need results in a sense of lack (see description in the chapter "How to overcome your physical dependence?").
Nicotinic substitutes aim to treat this dependence.
· Stopping smoking is necessary to increase your chances of success, but more:
o Choose a J day in the period that you think is the most favorable.
o Throw away your last pack of cigarettes, your lighter and put away your ashtrays.
o In a couple of smokers, it is preferable that the attempt to stop is made at the same time by both spouses.
· Tell your family and co-workers that you quit smoking. Ask them to respect your decision (no smoking near you, no longer offering you cigarettes).
· Prepare yourself to cope with the desire to smoke. It can occur suddenly and severely, especially during the first few weeks after the cessation of smoking, but does not last more than 3 or 4 minutes.
You must anticipate what you will do in this case and act very quickly so as not to "crack" as for example:
o drink a large glass of water,
o to chew gum,
o counting up to 100,
o do some deep breaths,
o out of the room,
o change activity ...
· Avoid the situations associated with taking cigarettes (coffee, aperitif,.), Avoid temptations (settle with non-smokers).
Find cigarette compensation (leisure, sport, cultural activity ...).

· agitation or impatience,
· difficulty of concentration,
Take the advice of your doctor or pharmacist as doses may need to be adjusted.

· Because of excessive weight gain
It may be necessary to change your diet somewhat before your next attempt to quit smoking.
· Because of a decline in motivation , because of a painful event or a difficult period, because of psychological difficulties appearing at the cessation of smoking (depression, anxiety ...), because of a situation very tempting. Understand the reason for this relapse to prevent it if possible during the next attempt.
In all cases, do not hesitate to ask for advice from a health professional or to use a specialized consultation to help with smoking cessation.
If you have started smoking again, do not get discouraged, experience shows that your chances of success increase after one or more attempts to quit.
