Is Nicotine Patch really safe? | I Love My Health!

Is Nicotine Patch really safe? | I Love My Health!: "Nicotine patches appear to be safe aide for smoking cessation, even among patients with coronary artery disease and active ischemia, finds a study by Methodist DeBakey Heart Center researchers.

In this prospective, multicenter, randomized, placebo-controlled trial, 55 participants who had a greater than nine percent ischemic perfussion defect size ( based on SPECT scan) and who smoked over 20 cigarettes per day were randomly required to receive eight 21 mg nicotine patches or placebo patches while continuing to smoke."
