Nicorette Quickmist Mouth Spray – 13.2ml
Nicorette QuickMist 1mg Freshmint Mouthspray starts to work in just 60 seconds to give you fast relief from nicotine cravings and is clinically proven to be 150% more effective at helping smokers quit than willpower alone.
Nicorette QuickMist 1mg Freshmint Mouthspray is a form of Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) that can help you stop smoking or to cut down on the number of cigarettes you smoke. It can also be used in situations where you are unable, or unwilling to smoke, such as in public places or around children. It relieves and/or prevents the unpleasant nicotine withdrawal symptoms and reduces cravings, providing you with nicotine without the toxins in cigarette smoke such as tar, lead, cyanide and ammonia that cause smoking related diseases. NRT may also benefit smokers who want to quit by helping to control weight gain that may be experienced when trying to stop smoking.
Nicorette QuickMist 1mg Freshmint Mouthspray is a slim, stylish dispenser approximately the size of a small mobile phone, fitting easily into pockets and handbags so you can relieve your cravings whenever and wherever they hit.
When making a quit attempt a behavioural support programme will increase your chances of success.

- Point the spray nozzle towards your open mouth and hold it as close to your mouth as possible.

Talk to your doctor, nurse or pharmacist before using Nicorette QuickMist 1mg Freshmint Mouthspray:
- If you are pregnant. You should try to give up smoking without NRT. Stopping completely is by far the best option. The earlier and quicker you do this the better it is for you and your baby. If you can't manage this, you can use NRT as a safer alternative to smoking 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 QuickMist 1mg Freshmint Mouthspray 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. 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 QuickMist 1mg Freshmint Mouthspray to ensure 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. This smoke produces breathing and other problems in babies and children.
- If you are in hospital because of heart disease (including heart attack, chest pain, 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 diabetes - monitor your blood sugar levels more often when starting to use Nicorette QuickMist 1mg Freshmint Mouthspray as you may find your insulin or medication requirements alter.
- If you are taking any other medicines such as theophylline, clozapine or ropinirole. Stopping smoking may require the dose of these medicines to be adjusted.
