Nicorette is chewing gum that sends nicotine to the brain quickly, resulting in a less intense “hit” than a cigarette. Nicotine gum helps take the edge off cigarette cravings without the toxins found in cigarettes, helping to reduce symptoms of nicotine withdrawal.
Do not use tobacco when you start chewing nicotine gum. Do not eat or drink for 15 minutes before chewing, or while chewing the gum. If the gum sticks to your braces or other dental work, stop using it and check with your doctor or dentist. Dental work may be damaged because nicotine gum is stickier and harder to chew than regular gum. Keep this and all medicines out of the reach of children and pets.
