Nicotine Gum Duration In Your System
No pretty gum: Trace amounts of nicotine can be detected in blood and urine for several hours, but it should be gone by 48 hours. However, if you are being tested for nicotine, there is a metabolite of nicotine, called cotinine, which can be detected in blood or urine for as long as 7 to 10 days after your last exposure to nicotine.
Depends on test: Half-life is the term for time only 1/2 remains - for nicotine it is 1-4 hrs (depends on many variables). Cotinine, which is what it becomes once inside humans has a half-life 7-40 hrs. So, if they look for that - it can be up to 80 hrs to be sure of being clear - if they know you are quitting, it might be they'd offer a re-test if you fail on that issue. Good luck!
Short-acting: The absorption and excretion varies among patients, but it should be completely gone in 16-20 hours. You may only feel the effects for 3-6 hours.
NICORETTE (nicotine gum) DIRECTIONS: Look at the directions on the package!

I googled it: Long-term exposure 2 smoke-free nicotine by the use of nicotine-containing chewing gum is associated w' hyperinsulinemia &insulin resistance. Because Insulin resistance and irs r important risk factors, this finding is consistent with increased cardiovascular morbidity & mortality in long-term users of smokeless tobacco. Http://circ. Ahajournals. Org/content/94/5/878.full.
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.
It Depends. . .: The degradation of medicines is mediated by atmospheric pressure, temperature, humidity and the ph of the surrounding environment that you kept the gum in. No one can tell you without testing it in a lab, how much nicotine is still active in the expired gum. Rule of thumb is this, the longer its been expired the less likely it is to have nicotine in it that hasn't degraded and become useless.
To sure I understand: I highly commend you for stopping one of-if not the most difficult addictions, surely the strength the nicorette (nicotine gum) plus chewing another nicorette (nicotine gum) per your pcp's instructions could eliminate this concern. Also do discuss additional aids such specific medication. I'm meeting in you.
Drink water: The gum is not meant to use forever. You can and should wean yourself from it. It may be easier than you think since you broke the behavioral habit. Cut by half each week if possible. Also, be sure to drink 8 glasses (8oz) of water a day to reduce any dehydration wrinkling. Once you can stop the gum, keep properly hydrated and you'll have your originally intended age-appropriate skin.
If helps, longer: The medical potion is relatively quick;however if you benefit from continued chewing; I feel this great substitute. Would like to hear additional info from physicians closer to the subject at hand.
What is the side effects of Nicotine Gum? And For how long I can use it? It is better than smoking cigarettes?
Nicotine gum: Is better than cigarettes but not by much. If you keep using it you will keep ingesting nicotine. Please consider finding a support group at a local hospital to help you stop smoking completely. Set a target date to stop, chew gum, drink water, to satisfy oral cravings. Please see your doctor for support. You can do it and will be glad that you did. Peace and good health.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Most expiration dates are not all that accurate. It is not like a medicine is fine one day and the next day it suddenly goes bad. If it's just a few months past the expiration date it's probably perfectly fine. If it is way past it may not be quite as potent as it once was but it will not be dangerous. Try it and see. It will certainly be WAY safer than smoking cigarettes, which are deadly poison!
