It is used either to stop smoking permanently or to stop temporarily.
Precautions are necessary in case of stomach or duodenal ulcer , renal or hepatic insufficiency . In these situations, a prior medical consultation is essential before using this medication; a cessation of smoking without substitution treatment may be necessary.
Do not use other medicines containing nicotine, including transdermal devices without medical advice.
Nicotine is a toxic substance. Do not leave the chewing gum within the reach of children.
Wearing a dental prosthesis can cause problems when chewing gums: consult your dentist.
overdose may appear. Contact your doctor in case of any doubt.
Smoking in pregnant women may cause fetal growth retardation. Stopping tobacco is always desirable. In women who are highly dependent on nicotine, the use of this medication may be an aid, but the effects of nicotine alone on the fetus are poorly understood. This drug has the advantage of not exposing the fetus to other toxic substances present in tobacco smoke. In summary: if the ideal is not to smoke and not to expose the fetus to nicotine intake, the use of this drug is a lesser evil compared to tobacco.
Nicotine passes into breast milk, and breast-feeding is not recommended during treatment.
If breastfeeding is nevertheless chosen, preferably take the gums after the stubborn.
dependence on nicotine: 4 mg gums are suitable for smokers who are highly or very heavily dependent. They can also be used by low-level smokers who prefer to limit the number of chewing gums daily.
In practice, it is useful to know the signs of under or overdose to adapt the dosage after a few days of treatment:
- the overdose results in the condition of the smoker who has smoked too much and is mainly reflected in a nauseous condition and headaches. Difficulty in sight or hearing, trembling, dizziness are also possible;
- an under-dosage causes symptoms of lack: irritability, nervousness, stomach cramps (kind of painful hunger), difficulty concentrating.
Chew very slowly each gum in order to allow the slow and steady absorption of nicotine by the blood vessels of the tongue: after a first chewing, keep the gum against the cheek for 10 minutes to soften it. Then chew gum every minute (about 20 times in 20 minutes). After 30 minutes of chewing, the gum is no longer effective.
- Adult :
The gums can be used alone or in combination with the Nicorette transdermal devices. In this case, follow the recommendations of your doctor.
Temporary cessation of smoking : the principle is the same, but the duration of treatment depends on the context that necessitated a temporary cessation of smoking.
Reducing tobacco consumption : chewing a gum as soon as the urge to smoke is felt in order to minimize the consumption of cigarettes and stay as long as possible without smoking. The number of gums to be used per day is variable but must not be greater than 30 2 mg gums or 4 mg 4 mg gums. If a significant reduction in cigarette consumption has not been obtained after 6 weeks of treatment, it is recommended to seek advice from a doctor. The objective of reducing the number of cigarettes is to achieve a complete cessation of tobacco, which must be tried as soon as possible, necessarily within the first 6 months of treatment. It is not recommended to continue treatment for more than 12 months.
Nicotine taken by way oral replacing the cigarette has the same cardiovascular harmful than that in tobacco. Only the risk of lung cancer disappears. When smoking cessation is motivated by urgent medical reasons: recent infarction , arteritis , gastritis or ulcer , it is preferable to stop the absorption of nicotine in all its forms.
like all smoke-free methods used to help smokers, this drug can only be effective when the will to quit is personal and accompanied by strong motivation. it is this motivation that will make it possible to fight against the desire to smoke, without being forced to make constant appeal to the will that dulls over time. A cessation of lasting tobacco in the smoker assumes that the smoker considers tobacco to be a poison, an unacceptable addiction. It must be done to the idea that it will never smoke, from the beginning of weaning. Every day without tobacco must be experienced as a release, not as a calvary. The smoker who is in this state of mind is a good candidate for definitive weaning.
Stopping smoking, which is a real drug, causes many problems: weight gain is frequent, concentration disorders can last several weeks. A mild depressive condition is possible. Weight gain should be fought by a diet, and if possible by a sports program that has the advantage of reconciling the smoker with his body.
Do not hesitate to consult your doctor in case of difficulty; his advice and experience will be invaluable in the fight against relapses.
Nausea, digestive disorders, hiccups, headaches, rash , palpitations .
Rarely: heart rhythm disorder , allergic reaction .
These sugarless gums contain a non-absorbable sugar (sorbitol or xylitol): possibility of diarrhea in case of large intake.
Arterial disease favored by smoking and most often localized to the legs. It is characterized by a thickening of the arterial walls which interferes with blood circulation and causes pain during walking (intermittent claudication). Lower limb arteritis increases the risk of myocardial infarction and requires medication. At an advanced stage, it can be treated surgically.
Synonym: Occlusive arteriopathy of the lower limbs.
Psychic or physical need caused by taking certain natural or medicinal substances. This condition may be accompanied, at cessation of the catch, by various symptoms, grouped under the term of withdrawal syndrome.
The strict medical sense of diarrhea is "emission of stools too frequent and too abundant". In fact, common sense equates diarrhea with the notion of fluid and frequent stools. Normally, stools are pasty, but the emission of liquid or barely formed stools, without pain or particular associated disorder, is not pathological. Diarrhea can occur when liquid stool emissions are repeated during the day and the needs are overwhelming or painful.
Many medicines can accelerate intestinal transit and make the stools more liquid, without this undesirable effect being of real concern.
Antibiotics can alter the digestive flora, essential for digestion, and cause more or less troublesome but benign diarrhea. The effect appears immediately or after a few days of treatment. A severe and exceptional form of diarrhea, pseudomembranous colitis, can be observed after antibiotic treatment; this condition results in the emission of mucus and false membranes (resembling skin flaps) associated with abdominal pain; constipation may replace the initial diarrhea. Pseudomembranous colitis can occur several days after discontinuation of antibiotic treatment and requires urgent medical advice.
System, sometimes called patch or patch, allowing the absorption of a drug through the skin: it ensures the diffusion of the active substance to the blood vessels of the dermis. The substance then circulates in the blood and can act as if it had been swallowed or injected. This device avoids the first-pass effect of the liver.
A part of the intestine into which food from the stomach penetrates.
Appearance of pimples or plaques on the skin. These lesions can be due to a food, a drug, and translate an allergy or a toxic effect. Many viruses can also cause pimple eruptions: rubella, roseola and measles are the most common.
State of moral suffering associating a demotivation, a fatigue, a feeling of uselessness, of self-depreciation. In the absence of treatment, the depressive state may develop into a serious depression with a feeling of incurability, guilt, and a suicidal risk.
Inflammation of the stomach favored by stress, tobacco, alcohol and certain drugs such as aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs.
Destruction of part of the cardiac muscle (myocardium), deprived of blood by obstruction of its arteries.
Inability of the liver to perform its function, which is essentially the elimination of some waste, but also the synthesis of many biological substances essential to the body: albumin, cholesterol and coagulation factors (vitamin K, etc.).
Inability of the kidneys to eliminate waste or medicinal substances. Advanced renal insufficiency does not necessarily result in a decrease in the amount of urine excreted. Only a blood test and creatinine dosage may reveal this disease.
Abnormal perception of irregular heartbeat.
Quantity and distribution of the dose of a drug according to the age, weight and general condition of the patient.
Reaction due to hypersensitivity of the organism to a drug. Allergic reactions can take a wide variety of aspects: urticaria, angioedema, eczema, eruption of pimples resembling measles, etc. Anaphylactic shock is a generalized allergic reaction that causes discomfort due to a sudden drop in blood pressure.
Excessive intake of a drug may result in an increase in the intensity of adverse effects or even in the development of specific adverse effects.
This overdose may result from accidental or voluntary poisoning for suicide, so consult your local Poison Control Center (listed in the appendix to the book). However, in most cases, overdose is the result of an error in the understanding of the prescription, or the search for an increase in efficacy by exceeding the recommended dosage. Finally, untimely self-medication may lead to excessive absorption of the same substance contained in different drugs. Some drugs are particularly prone to this risk because they are (wrongly) considered to be harmless: vitamins A and D, aspirin, etc. Stopping or decreasing drug intake helps to remove the disorders associated with an overdose.
Trouble felt by a person with an illness. The same symptom can translate different diseases and the same disease does not necessarily give the same symptoms in all the patients.
heart rhythm disorders
Severe or benign anomaly of the frequency of contractions of the heart. Extrasystole is contraction occurring just before or after a normal contraction, often perceived as a slight shock in the chest. Fibrillation is an irregular and disorderly contraction. Other disorders include torsades de pointes, Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome, Bouveret's disease, tachysystolia, flutter and atrioventricular block, etc.
Injury of skin, mucous membranes or cornea.
- Leg ulcer: chronic wound due to poor circulation of blood.
- Gastroduodenal ulcer: a localized wound in the mucosa of the stomach or duodenum due to excess acidity and very often to the presence of a bacterium (Helicobacter pylori). The ulcer is favored by stress, alcohol, smoking and certain medications (aspirin, NSAIDs, etc.).
- Pathway (route of administration) used to administer drugs: oral, sublingual, subcutaneous, intramuscular, intravenous, intradermal, transdermal.
- Set of hollow organs allowing the passage of air (airways), food (digestive tract), urine (urinary tract), bile (bile ducts), etc.

4 mg chewing gum is particularly suited for smokers who are highly or very highly dependent on nicotine (Fagerström test score of 7 to 10 or smoking more than 20 cigarettes per day: see "Health education tips" ).
Complete cessation of smoking
Treatment of nicotine dependence is usually done in 2 phases.
Chew a gum whenever the urge to smoke appears.
The number of chewing gum at 4 mg is generally 8 to 12 gums per day and should in no case exceed 15 gums per day.
The duration of this phase is about 3 months, but may vary depending on the individual response.
2 nd phase:
When the urge to smoke is completely overcome, gradually reduce the number of chewing gums per day.
Treatment will be stopped when consumption is reduced to 1 to 2 gums per day.
It is recommended not to use chewing gum for longer than 12 months.
If during your treatment you continue to feel irrepressible cravings or if your treatment has failed, CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR.
He may advise you to combine NICORETTE chewing gums with a nicotine-delivering form throughout the day: NICORETTE transdermal devices.
Temporary abstinence from tobacco
Chew a gum whenever the urge to smoke appears.
The number of chewing gum at 4 mg is generally 8 to 12 gums per day and should in no case exceed 15 gums per day.
Reduction in tobacco consumption
Where possible, alternate gums with nicotine and cigarettes.
Chew a gum as soon as the urge to smoke appears to reduce as much as possible the consumption of cigarettes and stay as long as possible without smoking.
The number of chewing gums per day varies and depends on your needs. However, it should not exceed 15 gums per day.
If a reduction in cigarette consumption has not been obtained after 6 weeks of treatment, it is recommended to seek advice from a health care professional.
Reducing tobacco consumption should gradually lead to a complete cessation of smoking. This should be attempted as soon as possible within 6 months of starting treatment. If after more than 9 months after initiating therapy, the attempt to stop smoking has failed, it is recommended to seek advice from a health professional.
It is recommended not to use gums for more than 12 months.
To increase the likelihood of complete smoking cessation, it is important to aim to reduce consumption by more than 50% during this reduction phase. NICORETTE chewing gum helps to achieve this goal before a permanent cessation of smoking.
Method and route of administration
To be active, the nicotine contained in the gum and released by mastication, must be absorbed by the buccal mucosa.
If nicotine is swallowed with saliva, it has no effect. It is therefore important not to chew the gum too vigorously.
For example, the chewing gum should be chewed first, then the gum should be cheeked for about 10 minutes: the gum softens and allows the nicotine to gradually release itself, to be absorbed by the buccal mucosa, thus passing through the circulation .
Then chew the gum very slowly (about 20 times in 20 minutes).
The chewing gum should be kept in the mouth for about 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, the chewing gum will no longer deliver nicotine.
Duration of treatment
For the complete cessation of tobacco:
The duration of use is limited to 12 months.
If you have persistent drowsiness or if you have difficulty with this medication, talk to your doctor.

Health Education Council:
Stopping smoking as soon as possible results in immediate health benefits. It's never too late to quit even if you've smoked a long time and a lot.
As soon as you stop smoking:
· You will not absorb the irritating and toxic substances of cigarettes,
· You will see some improvements: progressive disappearance of headaches, cough, irritation of the throat, shortness of breath,
· You will often have the satisfaction of regaining better sleep, food flavor, odor and improve your physical performance,
· You will reduce your risk of developing lung cancer or cardiovascular disease.
Tobacco addiction is twofold:
· Psychological dependence:
Smoking a cigarette involves a ritual of automatic and repetitive gestures associated with particular circumstances (pleasure, response to stress, intellectual stimulation, support for morale, need for a gesture of conviviality). This is psychological and behavioral dependence.
· Physical dependence:
The need for the nicotine body is due to the effects of this substance on the nervous system. This is physical dependence. Failure to satisfy this need results in a sense of lack (see description in the chapter " How to overcome your physical dependence ?").
Nicotinic substitutes aim to treat this dependence.
· Stopping smoking is necessary to increase your chances of success, but more:
o Choose a J day in the period that you think is the most favorable.
o Throw away your last pack of cigarettes, your lighter and put away your ashtrays.
o In a couple of smokers, it is preferable that the attempt to stop is made at the same time by both spouses.
· Tell your family and co-workers that you quit smoking. Ask them to respect your decision (no smoking near you, no longer offering you cigarettes).
· Prepare yourself to cope with the desire to smoke. It can occur suddenly and severely, especially during the first few weeks after the cessation of smoking, but does not last more than 3 or 4 minutes. You must anticipate what you will do in this case and act very quickly so as not to "crack" as for example:
o drink a large glass of water,
o to chew gum,
o counting up to 100,
o do some deep breaths,
o out of the room,
o change activity ...
· Avoid situations associated with taking cigarettes (coffee, aperitif, ...), avoid temptations (settle with non-smokers). Find compensation for cigarettes (leisure, sport, cultural activity ...) .
How to overcome your physical addiction?
If you are addicted to nicotine, the success of your approach may require the use of nicotine substitutes.
In order to assess your level of dependence, the Fagerström test is offered.
How long after you wake up do you smoke your first cigarette?
· within 5 minutes: 3
· from 6 to 30 minutes: 2
· from 31 to 60 minutes: 1
· after 60 minutes: 0
Do you find it difficult to not smoke in places where it is forbidden?
· yes: 1
· no: 0
What cigarette of the day would you be the hardest to give up?
· the first: 1
· another: 0
How many cigarettes do you smoke per day?
· 10 or less: 0
· 11 to 20: 1
· 21 to 30: 2
· 31 or more: 3
Do you smoke at a more sustained pace in the morning than in the afternoon?
· yes: 1
· no: 0
Do you smoke when you are so sick that you have to stay in bed almost all day?
· yes: 1
· no: 0
score 0 to 2 : you are not addicted to nicotine.
You can stop smoking without the need for nicotine replacement.
If you are concerned about this decision, consult your pharmacist or doctor.
score 3 to 4 : you are weakly dependent on nicotine.
score 5 to 6 : you are moderately addicted to nicotine.
The use of nicotine substitutes will increase your chances of success.
Consult with your pharmacist or doctor to help you choose the treatment best suited to your situation.
score 7 to 10 : you are strongly or very strongly dependent on nicotine.
The use of nicotine substitutes is recommended to help you overcome this addiction to nicotine. This treatment should be used in sufficient and appropriate dosage.
Consult with your pharmacist or doctor, possibly as part of a specialized smoking cessation counseling.
Weaning-related disorders may persist for a long time and the duration of treatment should be sufficient, usually one to three months.
If you feel, despite the treatment, a feeling of persistent "lack" such as:
· compelling need to smoke,
· irritability, sleep disturbances,
· agitation or impatience,
· difficulty of concentration,
Take the advice of your doctor or pharmacist as doses may need to be adjusted.
· Support from health professionals
The support, advice and follow-up that your doctor or pharmacist can give you will be valuable during the first six months of your smoking cessation. You can also use a specialized smoking cessation counseling, especially if you have already failed.
· Psychological support
Stopping smoking requires a supportive family and social environment. If you are concerned that the difficulties are too great, psychological support or temporary treatment can help.
In the months following tobacco cessation, you may find moderate weight gain. If you have any concerns in this area, you can contact a health professional who will be able to advise you.
Consider this relapse as an accident of course, as a normal event that allows to learn: the relapse is not a failure.
Analyze the reasons why you took back the tobacco.
