    I have recently quit smoking with the help of nicotine patches. I have noticed within the few days since my quit I have completely lost my appetite. No food sounds good and I am never hungry. If I make myself eat it makes me sick to my stomach. I have also had a constant mild headache and have lowered my dosage of the patches. I was just wondering if anyone else has had the same issue. Its starting to worry me a little bit. Thanks

    I just started the nicotine patch today and I feel the exact same way. The thought of food is making me want to throw up. I have read in several places that this is a common side effect of withdrawal (not the patch itself). Hope you feel better :)
