FAQs

Q. Are there any specific conditions where I should be cautious before taking Nicotex?

Yes, patients with cardiac disorders, diabetes, gastrointestinal disease, and liver or kidney problems should be cautious before taking this medicine. It is important to give your doctor the proper history of your health before starting Nicotex.

Q. Is Nicotex a stimulant or depressant?

Nicotex has a dual action on our body which are opposite to each other. It acts both as a stimulant and as a depressant. While the normal doses of Nicotex acts as a stimulant, some evidence suggests that lower doses have a depressant effect.

Q. How many cigarettes is 4mg of Nicotex?

4mg Nicotex gum can be taken by people if they smoke more than 20 cigarettes per day. The Nicotex gum acts as a replacement therapy to cigarette smoking. This gum can be chewed upon whenever there is an increased urge to smoke. It also helps to prevent cravings to smoke in heavy smokers caused due to withdrawal of the high serum Nicotex levels which result from heavy smoking.

Q. How does nicotine affect the body?

Nicotine gives the body a feeling which can be called "kick". This occurs because nicotine stimulates the adrenal glands resulting in an increase in levels of catecholamine hormones like adrenaline. The secretion of these hormones stimulates the body processes, makes breathing faster, and increases the heart rate and blood pressure. It also increases the level of sugar in the blood by decreasing the insulin secretion and increasing the release of glucose from the liver. Nicotine also acts on the brain to release brain hormones which gives a sensation of pleasure and motivation. It is because of these effects that people become addicted to nicotine.

Q. Is nicotine in itself bad for you?

Excess of anything is bad for us. Nicotine, when used in normal doses has similar effects as caffeine. Direct application of nicotine can cause irritation and burning sensation in the mouth and throat. It can also cause increased salivation, nausea, abdominal pain, vomiting and diarrhea. High doses of nicotine can lead to increased heart activity, tremors, and breathing difficulty. Extremely high doses of nicotine can lead to seizures and the person may collapse and or even end up to coma. Consult your doctor before you start taking Nicotex and follow the instructions as given by him.
