Overview

buy nicorette chewing gum freshmint online

NICORETTE® gum is a nicotine replacement therapy
(NRT). It is used to relieve and/or prevent withdrawal
symptoms and reduce the cravings for nicotine that you get
when you try to stop smoking, or when cutting down the
number of cigarettes you smoke.
NICORETTE® gum can also be used when you are pregnant
or breast-feeding to help you stop smoking, as the risks to
your baby are far less than if you continue to smoke.

Side Effects

As many of the effects are due to
nicotine, they can also occur when nicotine is
obtained by smoking.
Effects related to stopping smoking
(nicotine withdrawal)
You may experience unwanted effects because by
stopping smoking you have reduced the amount
of nicotine you are taking. You may also experience these
effects if you under use NICORETTE® gum before you are
ready to reduce your nicotine intake.
! These effects include:
„ irritability or aggression
„ feeling low
„ anxiety
„ restlessness
„ poor concentration
„ increased appetite or weight gain
„ urges to smoke (craving)
„ night time awakening or sleep disturbance
„ lowering of heart rate
„ dizziness, lightheadedness, blurry vision, nausea
„ cough
„ constipation
„ bleeding gums
„ mouth ulcers
„ swelling of the nasal passages and back of the throat

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

1. Chew slowly until taste becomes strong.
2. Rest between gum and cheek.
3. Chew again when the taste has faded.

Keep chewing like this for about half an hour.
After this time the gum will have lost its strength
and you should dispose of it carefully

Warnings

Do not use nicorette® gum:
„ if you are a child under 12 years of age.
„ if you have an allergy to nicotine or any of the other
ingredients.
! Talk to your doctor, nurse or pharmacist…
„ if you are pregnant or breast-feeding – you may be able
to use nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) to help you
give up smoking but you should try to give up without it.
See ”If you are pregnant or breast-feeding” section.
„ if you are in hospital because of heart disease
(including heart attack, disorders of heart rate or rhythm,
angina, high blood pressure or stroke).
In other heart conditions not requiring you to be in hospital,
using NRT is better than continuing to smoke.
„ if you have a stomach ulcer, duodenal ulcer,
inflammation of the stomach or inflammation of the
oesophagus (passage between the mouth and stomach).
„ if you have liver or kidney disease.
„ if you have an overactive thyroid gland or have a
phaeochromocytoma (a tumour of the adrenal gland that
can affect blood pressure) – your doctor will have told you
this.
„ if you have diabetes – monitor your blood sugar levels
more often when starting to use NICORETTE® gum as you
may find your insulin or medication requirements alter.
„ if you are taking other medicines such as
theophylline, clozapine or ropinirole. Stopping smoking or
cutting down may require the dose of these medicines to
be adjusted.
➤If any of these apply, talk to your doctor, nurse
or pharmacist.
! Some of the ingredients can cause
problems
„ The chewing gum base contains butylated hydroxy toluene
(E321), an anti-oxidant. May cause local skin reactions
(e.g. contact dermatitis) or irritation to the eyes and
mucous membranes.
„ This medicine contains less than 1 mmol sodium (23 mg)
in each chewing gum, that is to say essentially ‘sodiumfree’.
! If you are pregnant or breast-feeding
If you are pregnant:
1) Firstly, you should try to give up smoking without
NRT. Stopping completely is by far the best option. The
earlier and quicker you do this the better it is for you
and your baby.
2) Secondly, if you can’t manage this, you can
use NRT as a safer alternative to smoking as the risks to
your baby are far less than smoking, however you should talk
to your doctor, nurse or pharmacist for advice.
Products that are used intermittently, including NICORETTE®
gum, may be preferable to nicotine patches. However,
patches may be more suitable if you have nausea or
sickness. If you do use patches take them off before going
to bed at night.
If you are breast-feeding:
1) Firstly, you should try to give up smoking without
NRT.
2) Secondly, if you can’t manage this you are best to use
NRT products that are taken intermittently (not patches),
however you should talk to your doctor, nurse or pharmacist
for advice.
Breast-feed just before you use NICORETTE® gum to
ensure that the baby gets the smallest amount of nicotine
possible.
If you do need to use NRT to help you quit, the amount of
nicotine that the baby may receive is considerably smaller
and less harmful than the second-hand smoke they would
inhale if you smoked. Tobacco smoke produces breathing
and other problems in babies and children.
