Don't know: Not enough information to answer your question but I can tell you with certainty that you should not blame the symptoms on smoking cessation and are encouraged to continue that very good effort to get off of those things. By the way, I believe you stopped smoking because you wanted to not because of nicorette (nicotine gum).

I'm trying to quit smoking is nicorette (nicotine gum) gum a good choice?

Not best: Anything that raises your nicotine level and then drops it creates a craving for cigarettes. Nicotine gum & spray do that. Patches feed you an even level of nicotine without spikes. If you use patches do not stop short of 2 months if you can afford that long. Do not rush this. It is a behavior as we'll as a chemical addiction. Wash your clothes. Stop alcohol & coffee if need be. Grad incr exercise.

Is using nicorette (nicotine gum) gum or vapor cigarettes better than actual smoking?

Is using nicorette (nicotine gum) gum or vapor cigarettes better than actual smoking?

Education & support: Nicotine replacement (gum or patch) continues the addiction to nicotine. At some point u will have to go through withdrawal. Smoking cessation programs often offer gum & patch but u can quit w just the support & education. There's also nicotine anonymous, based on the 12 steps of aa. Wellbutrin (bupropion) & Chantix r meds that can help w cravings but neither works 4 everyone. Nic cravings r only 3-5 mins.

How long can it take to quit smoking when you are using nicorette (nicotine gum) gum?

Depends: The nicorette (nicotine gum) gum by itself will not make you quit, you have to have the desire and motivation to stop then the gum will help curb the urge, there are people who use it and stop with a week, but there are others who keep using the gum with no effect what so ever.

Can you take nicorette (nicotine gum) and nitro-dur?

I suppose: One would expect that a patient needing nitrates would be more likely to have complications from any nicotine compound which would promote vasospasm. However, if the choice were nicorette (nicotine gum) vs. Cigarettes, I would prefer the nicorette (nicotine gum).

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.

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!

Does nicorette (nicotine gum) gum cause oral cancer?

No evidence: There isn't any evidence that it increases risk for cancer. The real thing to keep in mind is that smoking is just about the worst (if not the worst) thing one can do to their body. It markedly increases your risk of many types of cancer, including oral and throat cancers!
