2. i am using nicorette gum in an attempt to quit smoking. after chewing shortly and parking it between cheek and gum per instructions, i get this feeling of a clogged esphagus, right in the center of my chest. i also get the hiccups while chewing. is this normal? thanks
Effexor is the only one that may cause insomnia. As for the nicorette gum, it may cause tightness of the chest and it is recommended that you stop if you feel this tightness. As for the hiccups the nicorette itself would not cause it, but it could be the way you are chewing or swallowing.
thanks that helps with the nicorette issue. effexor and synthroid i have been taking for about 10 yrs. about a yr ago i was prescribed the plavix after going thru a blind research program w/nuerologist, this is about the time insomia started.
thank you so much. it would be my luck that i would be in the 1 to 2.5%. i have been taking advil pm so that i can sleep however i take it around 9pm and am staying awake until 5am then to only sleep until noon or later the next day. should i discontinue the advil pm? do you have any suggestions as to a way to get to sleep at a normal time? thanks again!!
