Description

QuitX patches can help you stop smoking. You probably know that smoking is a very difficult habit to break. There are two sides to quitting smoking. The first is the psychological dependence on cigarettes.
You have probably smoked for many years and smoking has become an important part of your life.

The other side is a physical addiction to nicotine. Cigarettes contain nicotine, and your body has become dependent on nicotine. The QuitX patch delivers nicotine into your bloodstream through your skin. Using QuitX will help to gradually reduce the amount of nicotine your body craves each day.

QuitX is a program consisting of nicotine patches and a QuitX Support Booklet. You should receive the QuitX Support Booklet when you buy your first pack of patches. If you dont have the booklet, ask your pharmacist or write or telephone us and we will send it to you as quickly as possible.

The QuitX Support Booklet contains more help for you to quit smoking, but it is not a substitute for personal counselling. Counselling is available from various groups such as Quit For Life. To get the best
out of QuitX, we encourage you to enrol in one of these groups.

QuitX is not intended for short periods, e.g., plane trips or other times when you cannot smoke. It is designed to help you quit smoking, not as a substitute for smoking.

QuitX works most effectively when you have a strong personal commitment to stop smoking. You cannot rely on QuitX alone to break the habit.

Each nicotine patch helps relieve many nicotine withdrawal symptoms and cravings (such as early morning), which you would otherwise have when you stop smoking.

QuitX Patches should not be used by children under 18 years or by non-smokers.

There are also some people for whom QuitX Patches may not be suitable. Do not use QuitX Patches if you have any of these conditions:
Recent heart attack
Angina (chest pain) that is not well controlled or is getting worse
An irregular heartbeat
Recent stroke
Pregnancy or breastfeeding
A generalised skin disorder
Allergy to nicotine or to any component of the patch.

Tell your pharmacist or doctor if you are taking any other prescription or non-prescription medicines, as using QuitX (or stopping smoking) may change their effect.

Some conditions require special precautions before using QuitX patches. Consult your doctor if you have any of the following conditions:
Severe high blood pressure
Chest pain (angina), even if it is well controlled
Other heart or blood vessel disease
Diabetes requiring insulin
Kidney or liver problems
Overactive thyroid
Stomach ulcer
Tumour of the adrenal gland.

If you require further advice, you should talk with your doctor or pharmacist.

How to get started

It is probably best to nominate a specific day that you will stop smoking. It may be helpful to:
Try to choose a day when you will not be where others are smoking
Choose a day with as little stress as possible
Choose a day not too far in the future.

Tell your family and friends that you have set this target quit day.
This is the day you take control of your habit and become a non-smoker.

Prepare to stop smoking by trying to reduce the number of cigarettes you smoke each day. You should stop smoking completely while using QuitX.

How much to use

The QuitX course lasts for three months and one patch is used each day for the three months. Each patch is worn for one day (24 hours). As your course progresses, the aim is to use a lower strength patch
as your bodys desire for nicotine decreases.

QuitX patches come in 3 nicotine dosage strengths, QuitX STEP 1 (21mg/24 hours), QuitX STEP 2 (14mg/24 hours) and QuitX STEP 3 (7mg/24 hours). The correct strength for you depends on how many
cigarettes you smoke each day.

There are two sets of instructions here. Instruction A is for people who smoke 20 or more cigarettes each day and Instruction B is for people who smoke less than 20 cigarettes each day. Choose the correct
Instructions for you.

QuitX patches are designed to be used as part of a 12 week weaning off nicotine program. This consists of the 4-4-4 week program:
STEP 1 - The first 4 weeks Patch delivering 21mg of nicotine over 24 hours.

STEP 2 - The second 4 weeks Patch delivering 14mg of nicotine over 24 hours.

STEP 3 - The last 4 weeks Patch delivering 7mg
of nicotine over 24 hours.

If you have a previous medical condition your doctor may choose to vary the dosage as appropriate.

Instruction A
If you smoke 20 or more cigarettes each day Weeks 1 - 4:
Stop cigarette smoking and use one QuitX STEP 1 patch each day for 4 weeks.
After 4 weeks you should no longer be smoking cigarettes and can move on to QuitX STEP 2. However if you are still smoking, consult your
doctor or pharmacist.

Weeks 5 - 8:
Use one QuitX STEP 2 patch each day for another 4 weeks.
After week 8, if you are still a non-smoker, you can move on to QuitX STEP 3. But if you have smoked during weeks 5 - 8, consult your doctor
or pharmacist.

Weeks 9 - 12:
Use one QuitX STEP 3 patch each day for another 4 weeks.
After week 12 you should stop using the patches. You have become a non-smoker.

Congratulations!

Instruction B
If you smoke less than 20 cigarettes each day, commence treatment with QuitX STEP 2 nicotine patch and remain on this therapy for 4 weeks.

Weeks 1 - 4:
Stop cigarette smoking and use one QuitX STEP 2 patch each day for 4 weeks.
After 4 weeks you should no longer be smoking cigarettes and can move on to QuitX STEP 3. But if you are still smoking consult your doctor or pharmacist.

Weeks 5 - 12:
Use one QuitX STEP 3 patch each day for 8 weeks.
If you have smoked during your course of treatment in weeks 5 - 8, please consult your doctor or pharmacist before proceeding further.
Similarly, if you have smoked during your course of treatment in weeks 9 - 12, please consult your doctor or pharmacist.
After week 12 you should stop using the patches. You have become a non-smoker.

Congratulations!
