What is Nicorette Original Flavour Gum 4mg?

Nicorette Original Flavour Gum is a treatment that is intended to be used as a replacement for a cigarette. The gum is a form of treatment known as Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT). NRT is a treatment that helps people quit smoking. It uses nicotine that is found in tobacco to help reduce cravings and reduce the number of cigarettes used over time. Besides being used as a form of NRT, this gum can be used as a substitute for a cigarette when smoking is not possible.

 

What causes addiction to smoking?

An addiction to smoking is caused by the tobacco being inhaled into the lungs. Here, the nicotine that is contained in the tobacco gets into the brain where it causes the brain to release neurotransmitters that affect behaviour and mood. The neurotransmitter that nicotine causes is dopamine, which improves the mood and gives off the feeling of pleasure. Certain behaviours and actions can cause triggers that lead to symptoms of withdrawal and cravings.

 

Who is this Nicorette gum suitable for?

This gum is suitable to be used by adults by adults and children aged 12 and over. This gum should not be used by anyone who is allergic to the ingredients contained in the gum. Anyone who any of the following applies to should not use the gum without speaking to a doctor or Chemist 4 U first:

  • In hospital because of heart disease
  • Have a stomach ulcer
  • Have kidney or heart disease
  • Have an overactive thyroid gland
  • Have diabetes

You should also get medical advice if you are currently using any other form of medication.

 

Can someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding use this gum?

Anyone who is pregnant and breastfeeding and looking to quit smoking should first try to do without any form of NRT. If that does not work, then speak to a medical professional about using treatment.

 

How should Nicorette Original Flavour Gum 4mg be used?

Unlike more traditional chewing gum, where it is chewed until all of the taste has gone, the recommended method for this gum is different. At first, chew until the taste becomes stronger. Then move the gum to in between the lining of the mouth and the inside of the cheek. Leave it there until the taste fades. Then, chew again for around 30 minutes before carefully disposing of the gum. Use up to 15 pieces of gum a day. Only use this gum if you smoke more than 20 cigarettes a day. If you use less than 20 cigarettes a day, use the 2mg gum available.

 

Are there any side effects?

You may experience side effects as a result of taking a reduced amount of nicotine. These include:

  • Irritability
  • Feeling low
  • Anxiety
  • Restlessness
  • Poor concentration
  • Increased appetite
  • Cravings
  • A lack of sleep
  • A lower heart rate

There is also a chance of side effects caused by the gum itself, which include:

  • A headache
  • A cough
  • Nausea
  • Hiccups
  • Sore throat
  • Dizziness
  • A loss of taste
  • Tingling or numbness in the hands or feet
  • Stomach pain
  • Diarrhoea
  • Dry mouth
  • Excessive wind
  • Vomiting
  • Indigestion
  • Burning sensation in the mouth
  • Fatigue
  • High blood pressure
  • Belching
  • Itching
  • A rash
  • Chest pain
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Blurred vision

If you notice any of these side effects, or any other side effect, stop using this gum treatment and speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist as soon as possible. You can also record a side effect using the MHRA Yellow Card Scheme.
