Can Nicorette Lozenges Raise Your Blood Pressure?
Even though the Nicorette® Lozenge (nicotine lozenge) can be an effective product for helping people quit smoking, it is not suitable for everyone. For example, you may not be able to use Nicorette Lozenges if you have high blood pressure.
The Nicorette Lozenge dissolves in the mouth and releases a controlled amount of nicotine. Nicotine can increase your heart rate and blood pressure. If you already have high blood pressure, the Nicorette Lozenge can make it worse. Stop using this product and contact your healthcare provider if you experience an increase in blood pressure or a fast, irregular, or forcefully beating heart.
