Dangers of Nicorette Gum
Although most people tolerate Nicorette® Gum (nicotine gum) well, it is not free of dangerous risks. Because this medication is not suitable for everyone, make sure you talk to your healthcare provider about the possible problems that may apply to you. For example, Nicorette Gum has the potential to cause high blood pressure or increase your heart rate. Also, you should consult your healthcare provider if you have certain medical conditions, including diabetes, heart problems, or problems with your mouth, jaw, or teeth.
Other potential dangers of Nicorette Gum apply to women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, as well as people who have certain allergies. It is also important to discuss potential problems that may occur if you are taking certain medications. Even though Nicorette Gum is not likely to react with most medications, just the act of quitting smoking can alter the way your body handles certain medications.
