Can a child get severely sick if he swallows a nicotine gum tablet?

Can a child get severely sick if he swallows a nicotine gum tablet?

Maybe: Depends on the dose that is ingested and the size of the child. Having said that, children who ingest only one dose are unlikely to have any major issues or side effects. Still, any time a child ingests anything a caretaker should immediately call poison control to assess the situation and get recommendations. 1-800-222-1222. Read more

GREAT IDEA!: You're certainly on the right track! Quitting smoking is a terrific idea. Speak with your doctor about whether the gum is recommended for you. For some people the gum reduces withdrawal symptoms, including nicotine craving. So, it might be a good idea for you as you are getting through the beginning phase of quitting cigarettes and improving your health. Make a plan and go! Read more

Please point me to where I can get free nicotine gum?

Same place that you: Got the free cigarettes. There are some low-cost smoking cessation programs that are publicly sponsored that may offer smoking cessation medications, including gum, lozenges or patches, at low or little cost. However, even if you cannot get them free, the trade-off for what you are already spending on tobacco, and the savings to your health and longer lifespan, are well worth whatever it costs. Read more

Can nicotine gum be harmful if used for a long time? Any help appreciated!

Much less than: Smoking tobacco. Nicotine is thought to be the culprit behind cardiovascular disease in smokers, so taking in nicotine by any route, whether nicotine in combusted tobacco, snuff, chewing tobacco or nicotine gum, patches, lozenges etc., over a long period of time, could have some risks. However, it is almost certainly less harmful than continuing to smoke cigarettes. Read more

I'm addicted to nicotine gum should I be worried?

Not particularly: Since it is far better than being dependent on the nicotine in tobacco, which comes with organic agents, formaldehyde, carbon monoxide and assorted other poisons. The gum is not great for your jaw and teeth, and can cause TMJ pain and pull out fillings. I would recommend switching to lozenges, or better yet, go to an equivalent dose patch (14-21 mg) for a week then cut back for 1-2 weeks ; stop. Read more

Is it ok to use nicotine gum with paxil (paroxetine)?

Yes: There are no contraindications between nicotine replacement therapy and any antidepressant. Hope you are successful with your quit efforts. I generally recommend the use of skin patches, which provide more even levels of nicotine, and then use gum or lozenges only for breakthrough craving, but gum or lozenges alone can work too.

Could you take nicorette (nicotine gum) with nitro-dur?

Yes: For a long while, the manufacturers put on their package insert that people with heart disease shouldn't use nicotine replacement therapy (NRT). However, it is entirely clear that the greatest risk to health in people with heart disease is continued tobacco smoking, and NRT is clearly safest. What I would NOT do is have a cigarette anywhere near using a nicotine patch or gum. Good luck quitting. Read more
