How the NicoDerm CQ Patch works
The NicoDerm CQ Patch releases nicotine that passes through the skin and into the body, helping to reduce nicotine withdrawal symptoms and cravings. The NicoDerm CQ Patch is very thin and uses special material to control how fast nicotine passes through the skin. Unlike cigarettes, NicoDerm CQ delivers a lower and relatively steady amount of nicotine throughout the 16- or 24-hour period that your patients are wearing the patch. This allows them to gradually reduce their need to smoke.
