What is Nicotinell Patch
The active ingredient contained in Nicotinell Patch is nicotine. This product is a nicotine patch that is used in nicotine replacement therapy (NRT).

The list could go on, but among the most effective and easiest way of eradicating nicotine addiction is by using Nicotinell Patch.
