Some effects you may notice in the first few days are
dizziness, headache and sleep disturbances. These may
be withdrawal symptoms in connection with smoking
cessation and may be caused by insufficient administration of nicotine.
Common side effects (affects 1 to 10 users in 100) • dizziness and headache. • dryness of the mouth, hiccups, stomach trouble such
as nausea, flatulence, heartburn, increased saliva
production and irritation of the mouth and throat may
also occur, especially as a result of intense sucking.
Slower sucking will usually overcome these problems.

Rare side effects (affects 1 to 10 users in 10,000) • disturbances in heart beat rhythm and allergic reactions. These reactions may in very few cases be serious. You should see your doctor immediately if you
experience symptoms such as swollen face, tongue

Mouth ulcers may occur when trying to quit smoking,
but the relationship to the nicotine treatment is not clear.
