Nicorette Nasal Spray

Nicorette Nasal Spray provides fast, powerful relief from nicotine cravings, making it ideal for heavier smokers who think they may experience strong nicotine withdrawal symptoms when they stop smoking. By applying the spray directly into the nostril, the nicotine is released speedily into your system providing faster relief than other Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) products to help you stay smoke free.

Nicorette Nasal Spray provides the nicotine your body craves but without the more harmful toxins in cigarette smoke such as tar, lead, cyanide and ammonia.

To help quit smoking you should also try to use a behavioural support programme to increase your chances of success. 
Adults and Children aged 12 years and over:
  • Use Nicorette Nasal Spray whenever you feel the urge to smoke. The frequency with which you use the spray will depend on how many cigarettes you smoked and how strong they were. You can use one spray in each nostril up to twice an hour. You may find you need less.
    • Insert the spray tip into one nostril, pointing the top towards the back of your nose.
    • Press firmly and quickly.
    • Then, insert the spray tip into your other nostril and repeat the process.
  • Do not spray in each nostril more than twice in one hour.
  • Do not use more than 64 sprays per day – this is equivalent to 2 sprays in each nostril every hour for 16 hours.
  • Each spray delivers 50 microlitres of solution, which contains 0.5 mg of nicotine.
  • The 10ml bottle contains enough solution to deliver about 200 sprays.
Children aged 12 and up to 18 years should not use for longer than 12 weeks in total without asking for help and advice from a doctor, nurse or pharmacist. Adults aged 18 years and over should not use for longer than 9 months in total without asking for help and advice from a doctor, nurse or pharmacist.
  • Active Ingredient: Nicotine.
  • Other Ingredients: Disodium phosphate, sodium dihydrogen phosphate, sodium chloride, citric acid, polysorbate 80, ß-ionone, methyl and propyl parahydroxybenzoate (E216 and E218), disodium edetate and water.
  • Nicorette Nasal Spray contains methyl- and propyl parahydroxybenzoate (E216 and E218) which may cause allergic reactions (this may happen after a few days).
Do not use Nicorette Nasal Spray:
  • If you have an allergy to nicotine or any of the other ingredients.
  • If you are under 12 years old.
Talk to your doctor, nurse or pharmacist before using Nicorette Nasal Spray:
  • If you are pregnant. Ideally, you should try to give up smoking without NRT. If you can't manage this, you can use NRT as the risks to your baby are far less than smoking, however you should talk to your doctor, nurse or pharmacist for advice. Products that are used intermittently, including Nicorette Nasal Spray, may be preferable to nicotine patches. However, patches may be more suitable if you have nausea or sickness. If you do use patches take them off before going to bed at night.
  • If you are breastfeeding. Ideally, you should try to give up smoking without NRT. If you can't manage this you are best to use NRT products that are taken intermittently (not patches), however you
  • should talk to your doctor, nurse or pharmacist for advice. Breastfeed just before you use Nicorette Nasal Spray to make sure that the baby gets the smallest amount of nicotine possible. If you do need to use NRT to help you quit, the amount of nicotine that the baby may receive is considerably smaller and less harmful than the second-hand smoke they would inhale if you smoked.
  • If you are in hospital because of heart disease (including heart attack, disorders of heart rate or rhythm, or stroke). In other heart conditions not requiring you to be in hospital, using NRT is better than continuing to smoke.
  • If you have a stomach ulcer, duodenal ulcer, inflammation of the stomach or inflammation of the oesophagus (passage between the mouth and stomach).
  • If you have liver or kidney disease.
  • If you have an overactive thyroid gland or have a phaeochromocytoma (a tumour of the adrenal gland that can affect blood pressure) - your doctor will have told you this.
  • If you have a respiratory disease, especially asthma.
  • If you have diabetes - monitor your blood sugar levels more often when starting to use Nicorette Nasal Spray as you may find your insulin or medication requirements alter.
  • If you are taking other medicines such as theophylline, clozapine or ropinirole. Stopping smoking or cutting down may require the dose of these medicines to be adjusted.
