In brief: Yes
The nicotine patch works by replacing the nicotine from tobacco with a constant dose of nicotine administered through the skin by the patch.
The side effects of the nicotine patch are the same as the side effects of any other method of using nicotine, except the effects are usually less because the dose is constant rather than the burst that occurs with smoking.
