Can I eat or drink before or while using gum or the lozenge?

Eating or drinking even mildly acidic foods and beverages directly before using or while using the gum or lozenge inhibits nicotine absorption into your bloodstream. A basic alkaline pH is required for the nicotine in Nicorette to be properly released from the gum and absorbed through the lining of your mouth. We recommend waiting 15 minutes after eating or drinking before using the gum or lozenge. Do not eat or drink while using the gum or lozenge.
