Galpharm Nicotine Replace 4mg Lozenges

Galpharm Nicotine Replace 4mg Lozenges relieve nicotine cravings and the unpleasant withdrawal symptoms such as feeling ill or irritable that you may feel when you stop smoking. They are a type of treatment called Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) and work by releasing nicotine which is absorbed through the lining of the mouth to provide you with your nicotine "fix" but without the harmful carbon monoxide, tar or other toxins found in cigarette smoke.

Galpharm Nicotine Replace 4mg Lozenges can be used in place of cigarettes whether you want to stop entirely, cut down or are temporarily unable to smoke, for example in public places. They can also be used if you develop cravings once you have stopped smoking.

Galpharm Nicotine Replace 4mg Lozenges are for those who smoke their first cigarette within 30 minutes of waking. If you first smoke more than 30 minutes after waking up, use Galpharm Nicotine Replace 2mg Lozenges.

Galpharm Nicotine Replace 4mg Lozenges are sugar free and have a peppermint flavour.

Your chance of stopping smoking will be improved if you also take part in a support programme.
  • Place 1 lozenge in the side of the mouth and allow to dissolve.
  • At intervals, the lozenge should be moved from one side of the mouth to the other; the action should be repeated for 20 to 30 minutes until the lozenge is completely dissolved.
  • The lozenge should not be chewed or swallowed whole.
  • Do not eat or drink while a lozenge is in the mouth as this may reduce the absorption of nicotine.
  • Do not use more than one lozenge at a time.
  • Do not use more than 15 lozenges per day.
For full directions, please see Patient Information Leaflet.
  • Active Ingredient: Nicotine 4mg in the form of a resin complex (nicotine resinate 26.66 mg).
  • Other Ingredients: Mannitol (E421), magnesium stearate, sodium alginate, xanthan gum, potassium bicarbonate, sodium carbonate anhydrous, aspartame (E951) and peppermint flavour.
  • Each lozenge contains about 15mg of sodium and the maximum daily dose of these lozenges (15 lozenges) contains 225mg sodium. To be taken into consideration if you are on a controlled sodium diet.
  • Contains aspartame (E951) which is a source of phenylalanine. May be harmful for people with phenylketonuria.
Do not take Galpharm Nicotine Replace 4mg Lozenges if you:
  • Are allergic to nicotine or any of the other ingredients.
  • Are a non-smoker.
  • Are under 12 years of age. The level of nicotine in NRT is not suitable for children under 12. Children are more susceptible to the effects of nicotine, and it could cause severe toxicity, which can be fatal.
Please see your doctor or pharmacist before taking Galpharm Nicotine Replace 4mg Lozenges if you:
  • Are in hospital because of a heart attack, severe heart rhythm disturbances or a stroke - you should try to quit smoking without using nicotine lozenges, unless your doctor tells you to use them - once you are discharged from hospital, you can use these lozenges as normal.
  • Have heart or circulation problems including heart failure or stable angina (episodes of chest discomfort that are usually predictable).
  • Have high blood pressure.
  • Have occlusive peripheral artery disease - which is a narrowing of the blood vessels outside of your heart.
  • Suffer from phenylketonuria, a rare inherited metabolic disorder.
  • Have serious liver or kidney disease.
  • Have a stomach ulcer or duodenal ulcer.
  • Have inflammation of the oesophagus (oesophagitis), which is the tube leading from the mouth to the stomach.
  • Have an uncontrolled, overactive thyroid gland.
  • Are diabetic, as diabetic patients need to monitor blood sugar levels more closely as nicotine from smoking or from taking these lozenges may vary them more than usual.
  • Have been diagnosed as having a tumour of the adrenal glands (phaeochromocytoma).
  • Have had allergic reactions.
  • Are taking other medicines. When you stop smoking your metabolism slows down and this may alter the way your body responds to certain medicines.
  • If you are pregnant. It is best to give up smoking without using NRT. If that's too difficult, using NRT is safer for you and your baby than continuing to smoke. The nicotine in NRT is less dangerous than the more harmful substances in cigarette smoke, such as tar and other toxins. If you have tried to stop smoking without using NRT, and haven't been able to, your healthcare advisor may recommend NRT to help you stop. Aim if possible to use NRT for only 2 to 3 months. But remember - the most important thing is not to smoke. It is safer to carry on using NRT than to start smoking again.
  • Are breastfeeding. Tobacco smoke is harmful to babies and children, causing breathing difficulties and other problems. If you are breastfeeding, it is best if you stop smoking without NRT. But if you do need to use NRT, the nicotine that gets into breast milk is less dangerous to your baby than breathing in second-hand smoke. If you do use NRT while breastfeeding, try to breastfeed just before you take the lozenge, when the nicotine levels in your body are at their lowest. That way, your baby gets as little nicotine as possible.
