MANUFACTURER: SMITHKLINE BEECHAM CONSUMER . INDICATIONS: NicoDerm CQ Smoking Cessation Aid, Clear Patch is a small, nicotine-containing patch. When you put on a NicoDerm CQ patch, nicotine passes through the skin and into your body. NicoDerm CQ is very thin and uses special material to control how fast nicotine passes through the skin. Unlike the sudden jolts of nicotine delivered by cigarettes, the amount of nicotine you receive remains relatively smooth throughout the 24 or 16 hours period you wear the NicoDerm CQ patch. This helps to reduce the cravings you may have for nicotine.
