Nicorette Stop Smoking Aids
Nicorette provides a number of products to help you quit smoking. These products contain nicotine and are known as nicotine replacement therapy (NRT). Nicotine replacement therapies work by giving you a small amount of nicotine, allowing you to get on with breaking the physical dependence on nicotine. Nicorette comes in many forms, for example as gum, tablet and inhaler.
New! Nicorette Spray
Relieves your cravings to smoke instantly. One spray contains 1 mg of nicotine. For therapeutic use only. Nicorette spray is absorbed directly through the mucous membranes in the mouth. Do not use more than four sprays per hour.
Do you find it difficult to break the habit of smoking? Then the Nicorette inhaler might be something for you. The Nicorette inhaler can be used to stop smoking directly as well as in stages. The Nicorette inhaler is a mouthpiece with a replaceable nicotine cartridge. The therapeutic amount of nicotine that is released is less than a cigarette, but helps relieve the withdrawal symptoms and cravings for a cigarette that you get when you stop smoking. Insert the cartridge in the inhaler and then inhale through the mouthpiece in the same way as smoking a cigarette.
Nicorette gum is the most active product in the Nicorette range. Active in the sense that it requires an activity, namely chewing. The gum replaces the nicotine from a cigarette, which helps relieve the withdrawal symptoms and cravings for a cigarette that you get when you stop smoking. The gum provides a controlled amount of nicotine: less than a cigarette but enough to stop the withdrawal symptoms. Nicorette gum is available in two strengths: 2 mg and 4 mg.
Nicorette microtab is a nicotine replacement therapy in tablet form. The microtabs should be placed under the tongue and allowed to dissolve. As the microtab dissolves, the nicotine that is released is absorbed directly through the mucous membranes in the mouth. Nicorette microtabs are often used as an aid to quit smoking in one go. Each box contains 12 packs with 15 tablets and a dispenser. Most smokers use the tablets for two to three months. It is not recommended to use Nicorette microtabs for longer than six months. Do not use Nicorette microtabs if:
- you are allergic to nicotine or any other ingredient in the microtabs;
- you have had a stroke, recent brain haemorrhage or have a heart condition;
- you are under 18 years of age or a non-smoker.
