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.
The method of chewing NICORETTE® gum is not the same
as for ordinary chewing gum. NICORETTE® gum is chewed
to release nicotine then rested so that nicotine can be taken
in through the lining of the mouth.
If NICORETTE® gum is chewed continuously, the nicotine is
released too quickly and is swallowed. This may irritate your
throat, upset your stomach or give you hiccups.
If you have false teeth you may have difficulty chewing the
gum as NICORETTE® gum could stick to them and on rare
occasions, damage dentures. If you experience a problem,
other types of nicotine replacement therapy such as a skin
patch, inhalator or microtab may be more suitable for you.
The nicorette® chewing technique
1 Chew slowly until taste becomes strong.
2 Rest between gum and cheek.
3 Chew again when the taste has faded.
n 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
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
- 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

- NICORETTE® icy white gums contain 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.
