Frequently asked questions

Where can I buy Nicotinell®?
Nicotinell® products are only available at pharmacies. You can head to our website for a full list of retailers who stock the Nicotinell® brand. If your local pharmacy doesn’t stock the product you need, please speak to the pharmacist as they should be able to order the product in for you.
Can I use Nicotinell® if I am taking medication?

Before you start to use any Nicotinell® product – Patch, Gum or Lozenge – consult your doctor or pharmacist particularly if you’re taking any other medicines, including medicines that you buy without a prescription e.g. vitamin supplements.

Smoking (but not nicotine) can affect the metabolism of certain medications so it is important to consult your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking any medications.

Can I use nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) whilst being pregnant?

Ideally you should not use Nicotinell® or any other nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) while you are pregnant, and you should stop smoking without using NRT. Nicotine in any form may cause harm to your unborn baby. However, if you are unable to quit without the use of NRT, seek advice from your pharmacist or doctor before starting a program. The decision to use NRT should be made as early on in your pregnancy as possible and you should aim to use it for only 2-3 months. Products that are taken intermittently, such as NRT gum, are preferable to NRT patches. However, patches may be preferred if you have nausea or sickness. If you use Nicotinell®/NRT Patch make sure you remove the patch before bed.

Be aware NRT use during pregnancy hasn’t been studied, so there might be risks. However, NRT is safer than continuing to smoke though remember always follow the advice of your doctor or pharmacist.

Can I use nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) whilst breastfeeding?

Nicotine is excreted in breast milk in quantities that may affect the child even in therapeutic doses. Like smoking, Nicotinell® or any other nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) should be avoided during breastfeeding. However, if you are unable to quit without the use of NRT, seek advice from your pharmacist or doctor before starting a program. You should not use Nicotinell® Patch or any other NRT Patch if you are breastfeeding. Intermittent NRT products, such as Nicotinell® Gum, may be used instead and should be used immediately after breastfeeding, to ensure that the baby gets the smallest amount of nicotine possible from breast milk.

Remember always follow the advice of your doctor or pharmacist.

What are the side effects of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) patch, gum and lozenge?

Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) products like gum, patches, and lozenges can come with different side effects. Some side-effects, such as headaches, irritability, sleep disturbances and light-headed or dizziness could be withdrawal symptoms due to low nicotine levels. Remember: tell your doctor or pharmacist as soon as possible if you do not feel well taking NRT products.

NRT patch: Other than the side-effects from nicotine withdrawals, you could experience skin irritation – using a different area of skin to apply the patch each day can reduce this. However if you experience any of the following, you should remove the patch and immediately tell your doctor or go to your nearest hospital as you could be having an allergic reaction: severe redness, swelling, itching or burning sensation at the patch site or a rash.

NRT gum could potentially irritate the mouth or throat or cause problems with your existing dental work. You could also experience jaw pain.

NRT lozenge could have side effects like nausea, hiccups, excess saliva, upset stomach.

Note: NRT is generally considered to be safe for most people and while some people may experience side effects, it’s not a given that you will.

Before using any form of NRT, please read the entire product leaflet to identify if your side effects are common or serious.
