Your initial dose of Nicorette Gum will depend on how soon after waking up you normally smoke your first cigarette of the day. The dose is then slowly decreased to gradually reduce your dependence on nicotine.
Follow the recommended Nicorette Gum dosing guidelines to improve your chances of successfully quitting smoking. As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.

Side Effects of Nicorette GumJust like any medicine, Nicorette Gum can cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the drug will experience problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well.
If reactions do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
Common side effects of Nicorette Gum include but are not limited to:
- Indigestion or heartburn

Drug InteractionsAlthough Nicorette Gum is not likely to react with most medicines, just the act of stopping smoking may affect a number of other medications (see Nicorette Gum Drug Interactions).
