Nicorette acts as an anti-smoking aid by effectively relieving nicotine craving. It is only effective when used by people who want to quit smoking. Nicorette Gum is available in two strengths - Regular Strength (2mg) and Extra Strength (4mg). Whatever your reason for quitting, with willpower and Nicorette Gum you are twice as likely to succeed.
Each piece of chewing gum contains nicotine 4mg (sugar free). Nicorette chewing gum should be chewed slowly when the urge to smoke is felt. Nicorette should not be used by pregnant women or nursing mothers. Do not use nicorette if you have a sore throat. Do not smoke while using nicorette chewing gum. Nicorette must not be used by non-smokers or by children.
It is recommended that nicorette gum be used for 12 weeks to help you get over your psychological desire to smoke. After 12 weeks you should gradually reduce the number of pieces of nicorette chewed each day. It should take another 8 weeks to reduce nicorette down to 1-2 pieces per day. Dont be discouraged by this, it is all part of the smoking cessation process. When you reach this stage you can call yourself an ex-smoker but there is still the chance that you may lapse back to your smoking habit so always carry some nicorette gum just in case you feel an urge to smoke. The use of nicorette gum beyond one year is not recommended.
Nicotine like all other medicines may cause unwanted side-effects in some people. Tell your pharmacist as soon as possible if you do not feel well while you are using nicorette gum. If you get chest pain, irregular heart beat or bad indigestion do not smoke or use nicorette or other nicotine medicines and see your pharmacist or doctor as soon as possible. Most of the undesirable effects reported by users of nicorette occur during the first weeks after beginning treatment and are most likely due to chewing incorrectly or to the effects of nicotine. These undesirable effects include dizziness, headache, nausea, indigestion or heartburn, hiccups, jaw muscle ache and a sore mouth or throat. Some effects such as irritability, sleep disturbances and light-headedness may be withdrawal symptoms due to low nicotine levels. There have been rare reports of rapid or irregular heart beat, palpitations, tingling in fingers or toes, redness of the skin and hives. If these effects do not go away
