them.

which may be signs of an allergic reaction:
• difficulty breathing or swallowing, swelling of the
mouth, face, lips, tongue or throat.
• severe itching of the skin, with a red rash or raised

are dizziness, headache and sleep disturbances.
These may be withdrawal symptoms in connection
with smoking cessation and may be caused by
insufficient administration of nicotine.

• dizziness and headache.
• Hiccups, stomach trouble such as nausea,
flatulence, vomiting, heartburn, increased saliva
production, irritation of the mouth and throat and
jaw muscle ache may also occur, especially as a
result of intense chewing. Check that you are
following the correct chewing technique if you
experience these effects.

1,000)

Info Leaflet

Before taking any medication, it is important to read the Patient Information Leaflet. You can find information leaflets for your medicines by typing them into the search bar at medicines.org, or by contacting us.

Directions

Chew one piece of gum when you feel the urge to
smoke. It is important to chew the gum correctly,
not like ordinary chewing-gum. Follow the
instructions below and do NOT swallow the gum:


Chewing technique:
1. Chew one piece of gum slowly until the taste
becomes strong.
2. Rest between your gum and cheek.
3. Chew again when taste has faded.
4. Repeat this chewing routine for about 30 minutes.
Most people use 8 – 12 pieces of 2mg gum a day.

Warnings

Do NOT take Nicotinell chewing-gum if you are
• allergic (hypersensitive) to nicotine or any of the
other ingredients of the chewing-gum
• a non-smoker or occasional smoker
• under 12 years of age, except on the advice of
a doctor.
Take special care with Nicotinell chewing-gum
Please speak with your doctor, nurse or pharmacist
before taking the chewing-gum if you:
• have heart disease, (heart attack, worsening chest
pain, disorders of the hart rate and/or rhythm)
• have uncontrolled high blood pressure
• have recently had a stroke
• have serious liver or kidney disease
• have or had a stomach ulcer
• have persistent indigestion
• have a severe sore throat or inflammation of
the mouth
• are diabetic
• have an overactive thyroid gland
• have a tumour of the adrenal glands
(pheochromocytoma)
• are fructose intolerant
• are on a low-sodium diet
• are taking any other medicines
• are pregnant or breast-feeding .
People having problems with the jawbone and
some denture wearers may experience difficulty in
chewing the gum. If you do, it is recommended
that you use a different form of nicotine replacement
therapy, such as a patch or lozenge. Ask your
doctor or pharmacist for advice.
Using nicotine replacement therapy is better than
continuing to smoke.
Taking other medicines
Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are
taking or have recently taken any other medicines,
including medicines obtained without a
prescription.
The effect of some medicines can be altered when
you stop smoking and/or use Nicotinell chewinggum.
• If you are already taking regular medication
you should tell your doctor, nurse or pharmacist.
• Diabetics should monitor their blood sugar
levels more often than usual when taking
chewing gum because your insulin/medication
requirements may alter.
Taking Nicotinell chewing-gum with food and
drink
Coffee, juices, acidic and fizzy drinks may reduce
the absorption of nicotine and should not be taken
for 15 minutes before chewing the gum.
Pregnancy
Smoking during pregnancy is associated with risks
such as poor growth of the baby before birth,
premature birth or still birth. Stopping smoking is
the single most effective way to improve both your
health and that of your baby. The earlier smoking
stops, the better.
Ideally, stopping smoking during pregnancy should
be done without nicotine replacement therapy.
However, if you have tried and this is not possible,
nicotine replacement therapy may be used
because the risk to the developing baby is less
than that expected from continued smoking.
The decision to use nicotine replacement therapy
should be made as early on in the pregnancy as
possible with the aim of discontinuing use after
2-3 months.
Ask your doctor for advice before taking any
medicine.
Breast-feeding
It is better to use nicotine replacement therapy
products that can be taken intermittently (not
patches). Try to breast-feed at a time just before
you take the product to ensure that the baby gets
the smallest amount of nicotine possible.
If you need to use nicotine replacement therapy to
help you give up smoking, the amount of nicotine
that the baby may receive is considerably smaller
and less harmful than the second-hand smoke they
would otherwise be breathing in
