I just put on a 21 mg nicotine patch and just wondered if anyone knows, is the adhesive on the patch gluten free? I am allergic to the adhesive but will put up with the itching and blisters in order to quit smoking. I am too scared not to quit now. I tried the gum and it didn't work and will not use chantix. but just wondered if I will also have to put up with being glutoned until I can stop using the patch.
You will not be glutened by a topical patch as gluten does not absorb into the skin. The nicotine is formulated for absorption but, even if there were gluten in a patch (which I doubt), it wouldn't pass through. I used the Nicorette Fast Melts and they worked pretty good. They are gluten free. I am not sure which way is better but I think it depends on the individual person and their smoking habits. I wish you luck but I don't know if I would put up with an allergy and all the itching, etc. if there were something else to try. I have yet to find any gluten in any of the quit smoking products I looked at.

Thank you to both of you for replying. I am just allergic to the adhesive. I'm allergic to tape as well, the itching from the patch has gone away. maybe I just needed to get used to it. I still want a cigarett in the worst way but am determined to quit smoking.
Thanks for your help.
Good luck, Lady,and hang in there. I feel your pain!
