Well the Nicotine patch is geared to provide the highest level of nicotine in the bloodstream within 5 to 10 hours after correct application.

The nicotine begins to be absorbed into your bloodstream as soon as an appropriate area of your skin makes contact with the patch.

The half-life of nicotine is around two to three hours, so within 24 hours of using your last patch there will be very little nicotine in your system.

I hope it answered your query.

Let me know if you have any further queries

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
