I have never heard this and know people that have stayed on the gum for years though certainly not the recommended way. I would imagine there is an 800 number on the box to call for infor. Why not call the manufacturer. I have always had very good information when i do that.

I know when my husband was on the nicotene patch, it gave him a rash because the dose was so concentrated. That you are taking twice the highest dose and have an upset stomach doesn't surprise me. When people accidently swallow chewing tobacco, that can make them really sick! Also, some people, when having a cigarette for the first time, get nauseated.

However, the blood in the stool thing is not a good sign. Even if it's bright red (usually a sign of hemmroid problems), nothing in your gum should cause that. I would see a doctor to make sure that you don't have stomach ulcers. You can have them without knowing it and something like the gum can irritate them and make them bleed (usually comes out dark red/black).

I never had a problem with the patch while quitting smoking. But ever1 is different. Good Luck with quitting. My stomach pain seems to come from my IBS. After ruling out any madical problems, try smoking a little weed. (I think Dr.'s get it tablet form) It really helps me with the pain. Good Luck
