Other Uses for Nicorette Gum

Nicorette® Gum (nicotine gum) is a nonprescription drug approved for smoking cessation (helping people quit smoking). It is approved only for use in adults age 18 and older.
 
However, healthcare providers may also occasionally recommend Nicorette Gum for other uses. For example, one of these "off-label," or unapproved, reasons to use Nicorette Gum is for the treatment of Tourette syndrome.
 
Nicorette Gum is used every one to eight hours for 12 weeks (or sometimes longer). When you chew the gum, nicotine is released into your mouth and absorbed into your body. As you slowly decrease your dose of Nicorette Gum, your body adjusts to having less nicotine until you no longer need the medication.
