Nicorette Gum Side Effects

Hiccups, heartburn, and an unpleasant taste are some of the commonly reported side effects with Nicorette Gum. If reactions do occur, they tend to be minor and easily treated. However, potentially serious side effects may also occur. Contact your healthcare provider right away if you experience problems such as difficulty breathing, vomiting, or a severe jaw ache.

An Introduction to Nicorette Gum Side Effects

Just like any medicine, Nicorette® Gum (nicotine gum) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the medication will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
