Can I taper off smoking while I am using the nicotine patch?
No. You should not smoke or use other kinds of tobacco - such as chewing tobacco or cigars -
while you are using a nicotine product. The combination can increase nicotine-related side
effects such as nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and increased heart rate because of the combined
higher concentration of nicotine in blood.
