Nicotine Gum is a nicotine replacement therapy, or NRT, which supplies the body with nicotine. It is a useful alternative to smoking or vaping; the gum can be used to help quit those habits, or it can be used to prevent symptoms of nicotine withdrawal in situations in which one temporarily cannot smoke or vape.

Patients can choose to buy Nicotine Gum in a variety of flavors, a few of which include:

Back when they were new a prescription was required to buy Nicotine Gum; this is no longer the case, and most gums are available over-the-counter. Nicotine Gum can, in most cases, be used in patients age 12 and up, though not for as long a period as in adults. Parents should not buy Nicotine Gum for use in children under age 12; consult a doctor in these cases.

What to Expect from Nicotine Gum

Nicotine Gum replaces the nicotine ordinarily acquired through smoking or vaping. When nicotine is abruptly deprived, the body undergoes a range of physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms, including:

  • Cravings
  • Irritability
  • Anxiety
  • Mood swings
  • Headache
  • Sweating
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Increased appetite
  • Restlessness

Those who buy Nicotine Gum can largely resolve the physical withdrawal symptoms by periodically chewing the gum. Psychological symptoms are more difficult to overcome, and will require a level of resolve. Patients who don't want to quit smoking are unlikely to accomplish quitting regardless of the NRT used.

Those who are resolved to quit are about 50% more likely to succeed using an NRT like Nicotine Gum---with the physical symptoms dealt with, patients are better able to focus on---and resist---the psychological effects. Many find support groups useful; those disinclined to join such groups can find countless tips and tricks online.

It is likely that anyone wanting to quit for good will need to modify behavior to some extent, to avoid being in situations in which one habitually smokes. In unavoidable situations---say, driving---Nicotine Gum will help.

How to Use Nicotine Gum

Patients usually buy Nicotine Gum in one of two strengths; 2 mg or 4 mg. There are higher strengths available, but these usually require a prescription and risk of nicotine overdose is increased.

The strength chosen should depend on how heavily a patient smokes:

  • Patients who smoke fewer than 20 cigarettes per day should choose the 2 mg gum.
  • Patients who smoke greater than 20 cigarettes per day should choose the 4 mg gum.

Once a strength has been chosen, there are many ways to proceed. Some involve other NRTs or other non-nicotine medications, while others involve just the gum. Here are a few:

  • Replace all cigarettes with gum.
  • Replace some cigarettes with gum.
  • Utilize both low-dose patches and low-dose (2 mg) gum. This method should not be attempted on patients under age 18.
  • Utilize both non-nicotine methods and Nicotine Gum. This method should not be attempted on patients under age 18 without doctor approval.

In 2 mg and 4 mg strengths, using the gum is very similar:

  • Remove one gum from its packaging and chew it until the taste becomes strong.
  • Once the taste is strong, settle the gum between the gums and cheek until the taste fades.
  • When the taste fades, chew the gum again until the taste is strong, then return it to between the gums and cheek.
  • Continue until chewing no longer produces a strong taste, usually about 30 minutes.
  • Most patients use between 8 and 12 pieces per day of the 2 mg gum. Do not exceed 20 per day.
  • Most patients use between 4 and 6 pieces per day of the 4 mg gum. Do not exceed 10 per day.
  • If using patches as well, do not exceed 12 pieces of 2 mg gum per day.
  • If using non-nicotine medications as well, consult a doctor about gum use.

Duration of use is highly variable. Manufacturers typically recommend using the gum for 12 to 16 weeks, but in practice use often continues for considerably longer. Doctors and regulatory agencies generally approve much longer use, provided no adverse reactions develop. Some individuals buy Nicotine Gum for years.

Side Effects

Patients who buy Nicotine Gum should be aware of the risks of nicotine overdose; this is unlikely but can be a problem if a patient continues to smoke regularly and/or uses multiple NRTs. Symptoms include:

  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Weakness
  • Dizziness
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Heart palpitations

If experiencing the above, stop using the gum until speaking with a doctor.

Acidic foods and drinks---including coffee and carbonated beverages---can reduce absorption of Nicotine Gum. Avoid such foods and beverages for 15 minutes before and during use of the gum.

Mothers who are pregnant or breastfeeding are likely aware that smoking presents risk of harm to unborn or nursing babies. Mothers who buy Nicotine Gum are eliminating many of those risks, but nicotine alone is not entirely risk-free. Speak with a doctor about non-nicotine methods.
