Brief Answer: See below Detailed Answer: Hi and thank you so much for this query. If you are a regular consumer of nicotine, it requires averagely 30days to get a negative urine drug test for nicotine. If you just consumed it once, it can take as little as 5days to get a negative urine drug screen. In any case, it really depends on how often you have been using it and how much. I hope this answers your query fully. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more questions if need be. Thanks. Dr. Ditah, MD.
