My hubby stopped smoking in 1996 by switching to chew. Then in 1998 he used the smoking cessation patches to quit the chew. Since 1998, he has two long term side affects:
1) Can't sleep
2) intense itch on both upper arms. (An unscratchable itch)
Unknown to his GP.
Has anyone else experienced insomnia from the patches?
I need to clarify that he has had insomnia since after he quit using the patches, and use of any nicotine. It has been five years now since he quit and he still can't sleep and has the upper arm pruritis.
