What is Nicotinell Coated Gum Mint 4mg?

Nicotinell Coated Mint Gum is a form of gum that is designed to treat the effects of nicotine withdrawals and help to quit smoking. The active ingredient in the mint pieces is nicotine, the same ingredient as in cigarettes. This is what is known as Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT). NRT is a form of treatment that is completed over a period of months in order to reduce cravings.

 

What causes nicotine addiction?

Nicotine addiction is caused by the intake of the drug and the effects that it has on the brain. When nicotine enters the brain, it causes the release of chemicals known as neurotransmitters. These control the mood and give the feeling of pleasure, and reduce stress. The chemicals released by nicotine are dopamine and noradrenaline. Over time, as more nicotine enters the brain and these chemicals are released, the brain becomes used to it and craves the drug. This means that more cigarettes will need to be smoked for the same effect.

 

Who are these gum pieces suitable for?

This gum is suitable to be used by adults and children aged 12 and over who want to stop or reduce the number of cigarettes that they smoke. They should not be used by anyone who is allergic to the ingredients contained in the gum or by anyone who does not smoke. Take care when using this gum if any of the following apply to you:

  • Have heart disease
  • Have high blood pressure
  • Have recently had a stroke
  • Have serious kidney or liver disease
  • Have had a stomach ulcer
  • Have persistent indigestion
  • Have a sore throat or inflammation in the mouth
  • Are diabetic
  • Have an overactive thyroid
  • Are fructose intolerant
  • Are on a low-sodium diet

If you are currently using any other form of medication, then you should speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using this gum.

 

Can someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding use this gum?

Anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding and is looking to quit smoking should first attempt to do so without using any form of NRT. Should this prove to be too difficult, the use a form of NRT? Before using any form of treatment, first, consult a medical professional for advice.

 

How should Nicotinell Coated Gum Mint 4mg be used?

Unlike other types of gum, chewing this Nicotinell gum requires a different method in order to get the best results. Chew the gum until the taste becomes strong, then rest the gum in between the gum and cheek. Once the taste has faded, resume chewing the gum. Repeat this process for around 30 minutes. In a day, usually, 8-12 pieces of gum will be used. Do not use more than 1 piece of gum at a time, and no more than 15 pieces a day. Do not drink certain drinks, such as coffee or soft drinks, 15 minutes before using a piece of gum. After 3 months, reduce the amount of gum used each day, and once you are only using 1-2 a day you should stop using them altogether.

 

Are there any side effects?

Because this is a form of medication, there is a chance of side effects when using the gum. Potential side effects include:

  • Difficulty breathing or swallowing
  • Swelling in the face, mouth, lips, tongue, or throat
  • Itching or redness in the skin
  • Dizziness
  • A headache
  • Nausea
  • Flatulence
  • Vomiting
  • Heartburn
  • Irritation in the mouth or throat
  • Heart palpitation
  • Disturbances in heartbeat

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