As Singapore moves towards reducing smoking rates to 5% by 2035, more efforts have been made to increase the consideration to quit, such as increased tobacco taxes and tighter public smoking regulations.
And today, NICORETTE® debuts its latest Nicotine Replacement Therapy solution – NICORETTE® QuickMist, a portable, handheld mouth spray designed to start relieving cravings from 30 seconds¹, making it 2.5x² more effective at helping smokers quit successfully. The product is now available island wide at local pharmacies, (including Guardian, Watsons and Unity) or under a doctor’s prescription.
“We know how challenging it can be to quit smoking, and we remain committed to our mission to help smokers through our innovative solutions – such as NICORETTE® QuickMist. We also want to raise the awareness towards the ecosystem of quit aids, like Nicotine Replacement Therapy, and support available that can help our consumers stick to a smoke-free lifestyle,” said Stephen Tiu, Country General Manager Malaysia and Singapore from NICORETTE®, Johnson & Johnson Singapore.
Suitable for cutting down gradually and quitting abruptly, NICORETTE® QuickMist is equipped with a mechanical spray pump to deliver 1mg of nicotine per spray. It is expertly designed for nicotine to be rapidly absorbed through the lining of the mouth with each spray, allowing a faster onset of relief for cravings and other withdrawal symptoms experienced when quitting.
“Patients with nicotine withdrawal often find it challenging to quit for good. Relapse is a common issue due largely to the nicotine dependency derived from their smoking habit. Most patients start the journey to quitting totally unaware support is available beyond willpower alone. Nicotine Replacement Therapy is proven to support smoking cessation. At Johnson & Johnson, we hope that continuing to innovate in this space and raising the awareness of tools such as NRT, quitting successfully can seem more achievable for the consumers we serve.,” said Dr Ashley Barlow, Senior Director, Head of Medical Affairs & Clinical Sciences, Asia Pacific.
