The dangers of nicotine
The use of nicotine is never without a certain risk, and so all use of nicotine products should be done with consideration to your own body. Although nicotine doesn’t cause cancer, too much nicotine in your system can cause nicotine poisoning. The symptoms of this include nausea and vomiting, headaches, stomach ache and a loss of appetite, as well as dehydration and increased blood pressure. Although the fatality rate of nicotine poisoning is not high, it does mess with your system – such as increasing then dropping blood pressure – and is something to keep in mind when you feel tempted to swallow your nicotine pouch again.
It is also incredibly important that you keep your nicotine pouches out of the reach of children. If kids were to find and consume their parents’ nicotine pouch stash, the impact of nicotine on their small, developing bodies could be more severe.
Always remember to follow the clues of your own body – it will always tell you how it’s feeling if you just listen. So, if you have swallowed a nicotine pouch and you don't feel well (or you're worried), you can always visit your doctor for a quick check up. Whenever you’re in doubt, it is better to err on the side of caution.
