Wearing Nicotine Patches at Night

Is it safe to wear a nicotine patch (Nicoderm® CQ®) at night? Wearing a patch at night may be a good option for people who crave cigarettes when they wake up. However, this medicine may cause vivid dreams or nightmares. If you experience these side effects, try taking the patch off before bed. If the vivid dreams and nightmares persist, talk to your healthcare provider.
