Nicotine transdermal (skin patch) is a medical product used to aid in smoking cessation in adults.

Using a controlled amount of nicotine helps reduce nicotine withdrawal symptoms when you quit smoking.

Nicotine replacement therapy is safe when used by healthy individuals to quit smoking.

Studies have indicated that transdermal Nicotine is safe for short-term exposure in mildly hypertensive smokers.

However, when in use, you need to do a regular follow-up with your doctor.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
