Cocaine and nicotine?

Is there a cardiac interaction between cocaine and nicotine patches &/ or gum?

Dear Sharon,
The cardiac issue relates to the fact that both cocaine and nicotine will increase heart rate. Both stimulate the system and increase heart rate. So, taken in combination you can see that problems may arise. The nicotine patch I understand, the cocaine use is not a good choice.

If you’re trying to quit smoking, the patch is a fine idea. I encourage you to stop using the coke and to see your doctor. Your doctor can check out your heart for any other problems.
