Smoking Cessation  

Nicabate® includes a range of products designed to help people quit smoking. Nicabate® is the market leading therapeutic nicotine (also known as nicotine replacement therapy or NRT) brand in Australia1.

NRT works by replacing some of the nicotine that the smoker gets from smoking, helping to take the edge off withdrawal symptoms such as cravings.

This allows the smoker to focus on breaking the habits of smoking. Over time the dose of nicotine is gradually reduced and then discontinued.
