I Have Started NRT and I Am Having Trouble Sleeping

Some people on NRT complain of having restless nights, of being irritable, and of having trouble concentrating. Rather than this being a side effect of NRT, these are often a symptom of nicotine withdrawal and would be even more pronounced without NRT. If you are using a 24-hour patch and are having trouble sleeping you might want to consider using a 16-hour patch instead. The 16-hour patch only targets your waking hours and may reduce the amount of sleep disturbance that you are experiencing.
