In brief: 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.

Basically it's supposed to be chewed only long enough to release the med & then tucked against the cheek for absorption. Repeat as needed. Chewing it like regular gum defeats the purpose since much of the nicotine is wasted.
