COMPOSITION (summary)
p cp p cp
Nicotine 1.5 mg 4 mg
mannitol + +

INDICATIONS (summary)
This medication helps smokers detoxify tobacco. The sucking tablet brings nicotine, the main active substance in tobacco, responsible for addiction into the blood, via the oral mucosa .
It is used either to stop smoking permanently or to stop temporarily.
CONTRAINDICATIONS (summary)
This medication should not be used in non-smokers or occasional smokers.
WARNING (Contents)
This medication should not be used in children under 18 years of age without prior medical consultation.

Do not use other medicines containing nicotine, including transdermal patches (see Drug Interactions).
DRUG INTERACTIONS (summary)
The products contained in tobacco smoke can accelerate the rate of elimination of certain drugs, especially theophylline. When smoking cessation, these drugs can see their effect strengthened and signs of overdose may appear. Contact your doctor in case of any doubt.
PREGNANCY AND BREAST-FEEDING (summary)
Pregnancy :
Smoking 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.

Breastfeeding:
Nicotine passes into breast milk, and breast-feeding is not recommended during treatment.
If breastfeeding is nevertheless chosen, take the tablets preferably after the headache.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE AND DOSAGE (summary)
The choice of the dosage depends on the initial dependence on nicotine. 4 mg tablets are suitable for heavy or very heavily dependent smokers.
In practice, it is useful to know the signs of under or overdose to adapt the dosage after a few 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.
As soon as the desire to smoke is overcome, gradually reduce the number of tablets, until complete cessation.
Place the tablet in the mouth, without chewing or chewing, to allow the slow and steady absorption of nicotine through the blood vessels of the mouth. The tablet dissolves in about 10 minutes and should be regularly moved from one side of the mouth to the other during this time.
It is important not to drink or eat as long as the tablet is in your mouth.

Usual dosage:

  • Adult over 18 years:
Complete cessation of smoking : during the first 6 weeks, suck one tablet every 1 to 2 hours, not to exceed 15 tablets to 1.5 mg or 11 tablets to 4 mg per day; the following 3 weeks, suck 1 tablet every 2 to 4 hours; the following 3 weeks, space still the catches by sucking 1 tablet every 4 to 8 hours; then take only 1 or 2 tablets per day in case of strong temptation.
Temporary cessation of smoking or reduction in the number of cigarettes : 1 tablet whenever the urge to smoke appears, not to exceed 15 tablets of 1.5 mg or 11 tablets of 4 mg per day.
Do not exceed 6 months of continuous treatment.
TIPS (summary)
This medication can be used by smokers without medical advice. It is available without a prescription and can be accessed directly in certain pharmacies. Nevertheless, do not hesitate to have your choice chosen by your pharmacist. His advice is precious. He can help you determine the best time to quit and explain the causes of failure.
Nicotine taken by way oral replacing 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.
POSSIBLE ADVERSE EFFECTS (summary)
At the start of treatment: irritation of the mouth or throat usually decreases with continued treatment.
Frequent: nausea, difficult digestion, hiccups, headache, palpitations , dry mouth, rhinitis, cough.
Rarely: heart rhythm disorders .


GLOSSARY (summary)


arteritis
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.


transdermal devices
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.


duodenum
A part of the intestine into which food from the stomach penetrates.


depressed state
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.


gastritis
Inflammation of the stomach favored by stress, tobacco, alcohol and certain drugs such as aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs.


infarct
Destruction of part of the cardiac muscle (myocardium), deprived of blood by obstruction of its arteries.


Hepatic insufficiency
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.).


renal failure
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.


mucous
Tissue (membrane) that lines the cavities and ducts of the body communicating with the outside (digestive tract, respiratory tract, urinary tract, etc.).


palpitations
Abnormal perception of irregular heartbeat.


dosage
Quantity and distribution of the dose of a drug according to the age, weight and general condition of the patient.


overdose
Excessive intake of a drug may result in an increase in the intensity of adverse effects or even in the development of specific 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.


symptoms
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.


heart rhythm disorders
Severe or benign anomaly of the frequency of contractions of the heart. Extrasystole is contraction occurring just before or after a normal contraction, often perceived as a slight shock in the chest. Fibrillation is an irregular and disorderly contraction. Other disorders include torsades de pointes, Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome, Bouveret's disease, tachysystolia, flutter and atrioventricular block, etc.


ulcer
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.).


way
  • Pathway (route of administration) used to administer drugs: oral, sublingual, subcutaneous, intramuscular, intravenous, intradermal, transdermal.
  • Set of hollow organs allowing the passage of air (airways), food (digestive tract), urine (urinary tract), bile (bile ducts), etc.

Detailed information on this medicine is available on the ANSM website (France).

Health Education Council:

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 reduce your risk of developing lung cancer or cardiovascular disease. Moreover, in cardiac or arterial diseases (angina pectoris, arteritis of the lower limbs ...), it is particularly imperative to succeed in quitting smoking.

What is tobacco dependence?

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.

How to overcome your psychological addiction?

· Stopping smoking is necessary to increase your chances of success, but more:

o choose a day J in the period that seems most favorable to you,

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 situations associated with taking cigarettes (coffee, aperitif, ...), avoid temptations (settle with non-smokers). Find cigarette compensation (leisure, sport, cultural activity ...).

How to overcome your physical addiction?

If you are addicted to nicotine, the success of your approach may require the use of nicotine substitutes.
