Nicorette Flavored Gum
If you are trying to quit smoking, you may benefit from using Nicorette® Gum (nicotine gum). This over-the-counter (OTC) medicine is a type of nicotine replacement therapy. It works by reducing nicotine withdrawal symptoms, such as nicotine cravings, by releasing a controlled amount of nicotine into the body.
Nicorette Gum comes in two strengths (2 mg and 4 mg) and is chewed every one to eight hours for 12 weeks (sometimes longer). You can get flavored Nicorette Gum, which is available in mint, cinnamon, and fruit flavors. The amount of gum you chew each day will depend on how many cigarettes you typically smoke on a daily basis. Your dosage is then slowly decreased, which helps to gradually reduce your dependence on nicotine, as well as decrease withdrawal symptoms.
