About Nicotinell Nicotine Gum

Nicotinell gum is designed to be chewed, releasing nicotine when you need it to help deal with the cravings you feel when you try to stop smoking.

This product is designed to slowly release nicotine, allowing it to be used both for smoking cessation and for times when smoking isn’t practical.

Nicotinell Gum 4mg is a nicotine replacement therapy (NRT), helpful for people who are looking to quit smoking. By using nicotine gum, you can help alleviate cravings for cigarettes, and slowly reduce your dependance on nicotine products.

To give yourself the best chances of stopping smoking you should also try to use a behavioural support programme.

Nicotinell Mint Gum is particularly useful for people who are light smokers. Withdrawal symptoms are less likely to be severe, and the as required nature of the gum can help alleviate these symptoms.

By deciding to use an NRT product, you're taking a positive step towards quitting!

This product may not be suitable on its own for heavier smokers who are more likely to experience severe withdrawal symptoms when they quit. You may wish to consider using a Nicotine Replacement Patch in conjunction with gum.

Directions

How To Use Nicotinell Gum

Children and adolescents (12 -18 years) should only use the gum for 12 weeks. If longer is required then talk to your doctor, nurse or pharmacist. Children under 12 years should not use the gum unless advised by a doctor. 

Chew 1 piece of gum when you feel the urge to smoke. It is important to chew the gum correctly, not like ordinary chewing-gum. Once chewed, do not swallow the gum.

Chewing technique: 

Chew one piece of gum slowly until the taste becomes strong.
Rest between your gum and cheek. 
Chew again when taste has faded. 
Repeat this chewing routine for about 30 minutes. 

Most people use 8 – 12 pieces of 4 mg gum a day. Do NOT use more than 1 piece of gum at a time or more than 15 pieces of 4 mg gum a day. 

After 3 months, you should gradually reduce the number of pieces of gum chewed each day. You should stop using the gum when you are only taking 1-2 pieces of gum per day. 

Remember not to drink certain drinks 15 minutes before chewing the gum. 

If you are attempting to quit smoking using a patch programme, you can use these gums to relieve any breakthrough cravings you may experience. Chew one piece of gum if you feel the need to smoke. Counselling may improve your chances of giving up smoking.

Warnings

Warnings for use of Nicotinell Gum

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. 

Please speak with your doctor, nurse or pharmacist before taking the chewing-gum if you:  

  • have heart disease, (e.g. heart attack, worsening chest pain, disorders of the heart 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 

Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription. The effects of some medicines can be altered when you stop smoking. 

Diabetics should monitor their blood sugar levels more often than usual when taking chewing gum, as your insulin/medication requirements may alter. 

Coffee, juices, acidic and fizzy drinks may reduce the absorption of nicotine and should not be taken for 15 minutes before chewing the gum. 

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, 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. Ask your doctor for advice before taking any medicine.

Store all medicines out of reach and sight of children.
