How long does nicotine gum stay in system? If being tested to work as cna in hospital. Thank you

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!

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.

How long will nicorette (nicotine gum) gum be effective after the expiration?

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.

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.

Can you use expired nicotine gum?

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!
