    What is Nicorette Inhaler used for?

    Nicorette inhalers (nicotrol) can assist you in quitting smoking by replacing the nicotine in cigarettes. The nicotine that is present in tobacco is a large part of cigarette addiction. When you stop smoking your nicotine levels drop rapidly. This drop can mean withdrawal symptoms such as nervousness, craving tobacco, weight gain, irritability, weight gain, difficulty concentrating, and headaches. Using a Nicorette inhaler can help replace the hand-to-mouth habit of smoking. Quitting smoking is difficult and your chances of success will be best when you have made a commitment to quit. Nicotine replacement products are only part of a total stop-smoking program that includes counseling, behavior change, and support. Smoking causes cancer, heart disease, and cancer. Stopping smoking is one of the most important things you can do to live longer and improve your health.

    How to Use Nicorette Inhaler?

    Always read any patient information that is provided with your Nicorette inhaler when you start using it and each time you refill. Follow all usage directions carefully and if you have questions direct them to a health care professional. It is very important that while you’re using nicotrol that you completely stop smoking. To use, put a cartridge into the Nicorette inhaler mouthpiece and inhale the medication by puffing quickly on the mouthpiece for either four 5-minute sessions or continually for 20 minutes. Even though using the inhaler is like smoking a cigarette, you don’t have to inhale as deeply as you would with a regular cigarette in order for nicotrol to work properly. Nicotrol works in the throat and mouth, not the lungs.

    For 15 minutes before using the Nicorette inhaler do not consume acidic food or drinks. After you’ve used the inhaler for 20 minutes total, remove the used cartridge and throw it away. The mouthpiece is reusable and can be cleaned with soap and water. When you initially quit smoking use one nicotrol cartridge when you crave a cigarette. Generally you’ll use at least 6 cartridges per day for the first 3-6 weeks or a directed by your doctor. Do not exceed 16 cartridges in 1 day.

    Your doctor might direct you to use your Nicorette inhaler on a regular schedule as well as when you have the urge to smoke. Regular use can help your body adjust to the medication and cut down on side effects such as sore throat. The optimal dose for you will be the dose that decreases the urge to smoke without the side effects from too much nicotine. Your nicotrol dose will be adjusted to individual factors, so make sure you follow any instructions from your doctor. After you’ve stopped smoking and have reached the best dose and schedule for you continue that dose.

    Generally after about 3 months your doctor will help you to reduce your dose until you’re not smoking anymore and don’t need nicotine replacement therapy. Nicotrol will cause withdrawal reactions, especially if it’s been used in high doses or for a long time. If you suddenly stop using your Nicorette inhaler you will experience withdrawal symptoms. Your doctor will help you avoid nicotrol withdrawal symptoms by gradually reducing your dose. If you haven’t been able to quit smoking after 4 weeks with your Nicorette inhaler talk to your doctor. Most smokers are unsuccessful the first time they try to quit. You may need to stop using Nicotrol and try again later. Most people who try a second time to quit are successful.
