  • What strength of NiQuitin Gum should I use?

  • How often should I use NiQuitin Gum?
    • Chew one piece of NiQuitin Gum when you have the urge to smoke. It’s recommended to chew between 8-12 pieces a day, but do not use more than 15 a day. Gradually reduce your use of the gum to just 1 or 2 pieces a day to help you become nicotine free.

  • Can I eat or drink while chewing NiQuitin Gum?
    • You should not eat or drink while chewing NiQuitin Gum. Food and drink can interfere with the nicotine absorption from the gum, so we recommend that you don’t have anything else in your mouth whilst chewing it.

  • Can I drink alcohol while I'm on a treatment course of NiQuitin Gum?
    • You can drink alcohol while on a treatment course of NiQuitin Gum. However, you shouldn’t drink alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks whilst actually chewing. You might want to avoid drinking alcohol (particularly in social situations) if you associate it with smoking.

  • What should I do if I smoke whilst on a treatment course of NiQuitin Gum?
    • If you have smoked a cigarette or two but want to quit, then you can carry on using NiQuitin Gum. If you have gone back to smoking, it’s better to set a new quit date and try again when you’re ready. Or, if you feel that giving up straightaway is too big a step, you can use the gum to help you cut down the number of cigarettes you smoke as a first step to aid you to stop completely.

      Taking part in a support programme can increase your chance of stopping smoking.

  • Can I chew more than one piece of NiQuitin Gum at any one time?
    • You should not chew more than one piece of NiQuitin Gum at a time. Each piece of gum is designed to provide exactly the right amount of nicotine to reduce your cravings and withdrawal symptoms.

      Chew 8-12 pieces a day, up to a maximum of 15. Gradually reduce the number of pieces you use per day until you don’t need it anymore.

  • What if I use too much NiQuitin Gum?
    • Because you get much less nicotine from NiQuitin Gum than from smoking a cigarette, it’s highly unlikely that you will overdose. If you do use too many, the effects would be similar to smoking more cigarettes than you’re used to – you may feel sick, dizzy and unwell. If you’re concerned, stop using NiQuitin Gum and seek medical advice from a doctor or healthcare professional. If possible, show them the packet or the leaflet within it.

  • What happens if a child ingests NiQuitin Gum?
    • Signs of an overdose may include headache, sickness, stomach pains and diarrhoea. If you suspect nicotine poisoning in a child, contact your doctor or nearest hospital casualty department immediately. If possible show them the NiQuitin packet or the leaflet within it.  

      Be sure to keep NiQuitin Gum and any other quit smoking aids safely out of the reach and sight of children.

      Chew 1 piece of NiQuitin Gum when you have the urge to smoke, to a total of 8 to 12 pieces a day. Gradually reduce your use to just 1 or 2 pieces a day until you are nicotine free.
