FAQs

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.

Nicotex gives the body a feeling which feels like a "kick". This occurs because Nicotex 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 insulin secretion and increasing the release of glucose from the liver.
