Does anyone know if the nicoderm CQ (quit smoking patches) are gluten free?

I quit smoking yesterday and am using the patch. I can't find anything online.

Thanks

Gluten free or not, it should not bother you unless you have an allergy to topical products.

What I'm concerned about is that the patch is made to deliver nicotine through the skin barrier into the blood stream. If there is gluten in the adhesive, it would also be able to pass through the skin barrier into the blood stream depending on the carrier used for the nicotine.

No, that's not possible. The gluten molecules are to large to penetrate the skin barrier. And, I think it doubtful that it would contain gluten anyway. Good luck with your quest. I quit smoking over two years ago, after 30 years.
