What is Nicorette Nasal Spray?
Nicorette Nasal Spray is a treatment for people who are trying to quit smoking but are still getting cravings for nicotine. The spray works by getting nicotine into the bloodstream quicker through the lining of the nose. This will stop the cravings you get from a cigarette but will not give you the feeling of smoking a cigarette.
Who is this nasal spray suitable for?
Nicorette Nasal Spray is suitable to be used by anyone aged 12 and over who are looking to suppress the cravings that are associated with smoking withdrawals. Is should not be used by anyone who is allergic to the ingredients contained in the spray.
Can this spray be used by someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding?
For anyone who is pregnant and is looking to quit smoking, it is recommended that is done as soon as possible, for the health of both mother and baby. Ideally, this would be done without the need of NRT (Nicotine Replacement Therapy). Therefore, speak to a doctor for advice. If you are breastfeeding, then using NRT is much preferred to smoking, as second-hand smoke can be very detrimental to a child’s health.
How often should this nasal spray be used?
The nasal spray should be whenever you feel the need for a cigarette. This will depend on the number of cigarettes that you had when smoking. Do not spray in each nostril more than twice in one hour and when using, only spray once in each nostril. Children aged between 12-18 should only use for a maximum of 12 weeks and adults for a maximum of 9 months.
How to use Nicorette Nasal Spray.
Before using the spray, you should prime it for use. To do this, place the nozzle between the first and second fingers on the hand, with the thumb at the bottom. Press several times until the spray appears. Keep the spray away from eyes at all times. To use the spray, put the nozzle up the nose, pointing to the back of the nose and not at the top. See the included instruction leaflet for a diagram.
