Use during pregnancy and lactation

Pregnancy

It is very important to stop smoking during your pregnancy as it may lead to stunted growth of your child or even prematurity or fetal death. Ideally, you should try to stop smoking without taking medication. If this fails, NICOTINELL FRUIT may be recommended to help you. This is because the risk to the fetus is probably lower than that of smoking. Nicotine in any form can harm your child. NICOTINELL FRUIT may be taken only after consulting your doctor who is monitoring your pregnancy or a doctor who specializes in smoking cessation.

Breastfeeding

NICOTINELL FRUIT Gum, like smoking, should be avoided while breast-feeding because nicotine passes into breast milk.

If your doctor recommends that you use NICOTINELL FRUIT Gum while you are breastfeeding, the gum should be chewed just after feeding and not during the two hours before feeding.

Ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking any medicine.
