With withdrawal syndrome, people who abruptly abandoned nicotine-containing products, have a number of symptoms characteristic of the so-called withdrawal syndrome. This dysphoria or a bad mood, irritability, insomnia, anxiety, absent-mindedness, increased appetite, reduced heart rate.
The drug is indicated for substitution treatment in the treatment of dependence on tobacco smoking. Nicorette helps to ease the withdrawal syndrome in people who have given up smoking. This is due to the provision of the human body with ionized nicotine. But in this case in the blood plasma the level of nicotine does not have a high value.
When Nicorette's chewing gum is used, the nicotine contained in it is slowly released and slowly absorbed into the body. Systemic exposure to nicotine does not occur, as it passes through the liver quickly, it breaks down.
According to clinical studies, nicotine replacement therapy can effectively help malicious smokers to refrain from smoking.
Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics
Nicotine, which enters the body from chewing gum, enters the blood after 5-7 minutes, sucked through the oral mucosa. The highest concentration of nicotine is observed 30 minutes after the chewing gum starts. Basically, nicotine is excreted by the liver, and it is also metabolized in the kidneys and in the lungs. Approximately 10-30% are excreted unchanged in the urine.
After using the patch, the maximum concentration of nicotine in the blood plasma is observed after about 9 hours. If the Nicorette plaster is applied correctly, the greatest concentration of nicotine is noted in the evening, when, as a rule, there is a persistent desire to smoke.
Nicotine binds to blood proteins by no more than 5%. In smokers suffering from chronic renal failure and receiving hemodialysis, the concentration of nicotine in the blood increases. In elderly people, the overall nicotine clearance is slightly reduced, however, dose adjustment does not require this.

Instructions on Nicorette (Method and dosage)
The following rules must be carefully observed in order to achieve the desired effect.
Instructions for the use of chewing gum are as follows: Initially chewing gum Nicorette 2 mg is taken. Every day 8-12 gum pads are taken. If the smoker has a heavy dependence on tobacco smoking (previously he smoked from 20 cigarettes per day), it is desirable to apply for replacement therapy Nicorette 4 mg. A day can chew no more than 24 chewing gum.
If a person wants to quit smoking completely, he needs to apply chewing gum for at least 3 months, after which the dose gradually decreases. When the dose will be 1-2 pads per day, the drug can be canceled.
Chewing gum is recommended to chew every time when there is a strong desire to smoke. If using such a regimen for a month and a half the amount of cigarettes smoked does not decrease, the tactics of treatment should be changed.
Nicorette tablets are used sublingually and kept until completely dissolved. Dosage is selected individually. People with a low dependence on a single dose just take one 2 mg tablet, people with severe dependence can increase the dose to two 2 mg tablets. A day can not eat more than 30 tablets of 2 mg.
The instruction for the Nicorette plaster is as follows. In the morning it is applied to intact skin, remove the patch before bed. Accordingly, during sleep, nicotine does not enter the body. At the first stage, a 25 mg patch is used per day. This stage lasts 8 weeks. Further for two weeks you need to use a patch 15 mg. For the next two weeks, a 10 mg patch is already used.
If nicotine dependence is not strong, treatment begins with the use of a 15 mg patch (treatment lasts 8 weeks). The next four weeks apply a 10 mg patch.
Treatment lasts about 3 months on average. Sometimes a longer period is required, but it is not recommended to use a patch without a break for more than six months.
The patch is glued on a dry and clean skin without a hair covering (thigh, chest, shoulder). Every day you need to change the place for the application.
Before gluing, you should wash your hands, cut the package and gently glue the patch, trying not to touch the sticky surface.
With an overdose of Nicorette, the same symptoms are observed as in nicotine poisoning:
headache and dizziness;
abdominal pain and stool disorders;
the appearance of seizures.
It should be noted that therapeutic doses intended for adults can be lethal for young children.
Smoking and concurrent use of Nicorette may lead to an overdose of nicotine. Overdose is possible with the use of several patches at once, as well as with the simultaneous application of different forms of Nicorette.
When an overdose immediately stops using nicotine and symptomatic therapy is performed.
Due to the cessation of smoking, the blood concentration of a number of drugs may increase: clozapine, theophylline, flecainide, imipramine, and other drugs with a low therapeutic index.
There is evidence that when smoking can change the metabolism of flecainide and pentazocine.
