How to use nicorette® invisi patch i Follow the instructions below. Choosing where to apply the patch 1 Before applying your NICORETTE® invisi patch, choose a completely clean, dry area of hairless skin on the front or side of the chest, upper arm or hip. 2 Avoid placing the patch onto any area of skin that is red, cut or irritated. 3 Do not apply oil or talcum powder to the skin before putting on the patch as this may prevent it from sticking properly. 4 It is important that you do not use the same area on two consecutive days to help avoid irritating that site. i How to apply the patch 1 Wash your hands before applying the patch. 2 Each NICORETTE® invisi patch comes in a child resistant sachet which can be opened by cutting along the edge with a pair of scissors. 3 Remove the patch from its sachet and then peel one part of the silvery aluminium backing away. Avoid touching the sticky surface of the patch with your fingers. 4 Carefully apply the sticky part of the patch to the chosen area of skin and then peel off the remaining half of the silvery aluminium backing foil. 5 Press the patch firmly onto the skin with your palm or finger tips. 6 Run your fingers around the edge to ensure it sticks firmly. i Removing and disposing of the patch 1 The patch should be removed before you go to bed as NICORETTE® invisi patch is not designed to be worn when you go to sleep at night or for more than 16 hours each day. 2 After removal, the patch should be folded in half, sticky side inwards and placed inside the opened sachet or a piece of aluminium foil. 3 The patch should then be disposed of carefully in the household rubbish, out of reach of children and animals.

What is a Generic Drug?
A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
