Indication


Nicorette without sugar is treatment for tobacco addiction to relieve withdrawal nicotine symptoms among adults that want to stop their tobacco consumption.
Although stopping definitively is better, Nicorette can help in:
- in the case of a smoker temporary giving up,
- a strategy to reduce the tobacco intake as a way to giving up altogether.

How to take this drug


How to use
Orally.
The nicotine contained in the gum becomes active once you start chewing the gum, it is then absorbed into the mouth.
If the nicotine is swallowed with the saliva it has no effect. It is therefore important not to chew the gum too much.
It is recommended to chew the gum then keep it against your inside cheek for approximately 10 minutes: the gum softens and this allows the nicotine to be released and abosrbed into the mouth as well as into the blood.
Then continue to chew the gum gently (20 times in 20 minutes).
The gum must be kept in the mouth for approximately 30 minutes. After 30 minutes the gum no longer releases any nicotine.

Dosage
The chewing gum is not suitable for heavy or very heavy smokers (Fagerstrom test showed 7/10 for those smoking more than 20 cigarettes per day).
Stop smoking
Treatment is normally done in two phases.
1 st phase:
Chew the gum every time you want to smoke. The number of chewing gum pieces is generally 8-12 per day and should not exceed more than 20 per day. The length of this stage is approximately 3 months but can vary depending on the individual.
2 nd phase:
When you no longer have the feeling of wanting to smoke, reduce the number of chewing gum pieces per day. Treatment should stop when you are only having 1-2 pieces per day.
It is not recommended to take the chewing gum after 12 months.
If you still feel like smoking during treatment or after treatment has stopped, CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR. Your doctor might advise you to combine the Nicorette chewing gum with the Nicorette patches.

Temporary tobacco Abstinence
Chew the gum every time you want to smoke.
The number of chewing gum pieces is generally 8-12 per day and should not exceed more than 20 per day.
Reducing Tobacco Consumption
Alternate the chewing gum and cigarettes.
Chew the gum every time you feel like smoking to reduce the overall consumption of cigarettes.
The number of chewing gum pieces varies depending on your needs. However do not exceed more than 30 pieces per day.
If your cigarette consumption has not decreased after 6 weeks of treatment it is recommended to consult a health professional.
Reducing the tobacco content gradually leads to complete stop in tobacco. This should be done as early as possible in the 6 months following treatment. If in the 9 months since the beginning of treatment you have not stopped smoking, it is recommended to consult a health professional.
It is not recommended to take the chewing gum after 12 months.
To increase the chances of not taking tobacco it is important to reduce consumption by 50% during this phase. The Nicorette chewing gum helps achieve this objective before stopping completely.

Length of treatment
Duration is capped at 12 months.

Contraindications


Do not take Nicorette chewing gum in the following cases:
- if you do not smoke or only smoke occasionally.
- if you are allergic to one of its components.

Pregnancy and breast feeding


Pregnancy:
It is very important to stop smoking during pregnancy for you and the baby.
Nicotine substitute treatments during pregnancy need medical consent. You must consult a health professional during pregnancy if you have tobacco withdrawal symptoms.

Breast feeding:
If you smoke a lot or are not thinking about stopping you should not breast-feed your child.
The use of this medication is not recommended during breast-feeing as nicotine passes into human milk.
However if you want to stop smoking and breast-feed your child, seek medical advice first.


If your symptoms persist, consult your doctor.
