Congratulations

You have taken the most important step of all: deciding to quit. Now that you've put your mind to it, your strength and willpower combined with the proper use of NICORETTE Inhaler can help you conquer the cravings and make your habit a thing of the past. Read on to find out how the NICORETTE Inhaler can help you do just that.


How the NICORETTE Inhaler can help you?

The NICORETTE Inhaler can help you stop smoking by reducing your urge to smoke. The NICORETTE Inhaler can calm the craving for a cigarette and satisfy the hand-to-mouth ritual of the smoker. Although it may be an effective aid, the Inhaler is only part of your stop smoking program. Your chances of quitting smoking depend on how much you want to quit, how addicted you are to nicotine, and how closely you follow a stop smoking program. Success in quitting with nicotine replacement therapy (such as the NICORETTE Inhaler) usually involves behavioral change. People who use the NICORETTE Inhaler with a comprehensive behavioral smoking cessation program are more successful in quitting smoking. Such a program can include support groups, counselling or specific behavior-altering techniques. In order to use this product, you must be at least 18 years of age.


Understanding your smoking habit

Many of the cigarettes you smoke are little more than “habit” cigarettes; you've gotten into the habit of having them at certain times, like:

  • with morning coffee

  • after meals

  • while talking on the phone

  • while driving your car

  • when under stress

  • while having a drink with friends

The other cigarettes you smoke are cigarettes your body feels it “needs”. Nicotine is a chemical your body has come to like and depend on. When you smoke, nicotine is released into your bloodstream, “topping up” its supply. After a while, your blood levels of nicotine decrease until you feel a craving telling you to “top up” again.


How does the NICORETTE Inhaler work?

The NICORETTE Inhaler is designed to help you quit smoking cigarettes. It replaces some of the nicotine you crave when you stop smoking, and helps to relieve symptoms of nicotine withdrawal such as irritability, frustration, anger, anxiety, difficulty concentrating and restlessness. For many people, smoking is the most difficult habit to break. Smokers repeat the hand-to-mouth ritual approximately 200 times a day (73,000 times a year). While the importance of this effect in quitting smoking is, as yet, unknown, the NICORETTE Inhaler can reduce the craving to smoke, while also providing the comfort of the hand-to-mouth ritual.


Set a Quit Day

Your chances of quitting smoking increase dramatically when you set a Quit Day for yourself. Your Quit Day shouldn't be too far in the future, nor should it be a particularly stressful day. Before your Quit Day, go over all your reasons for wanting to quit, and try to imagine yourself leading a cigarette-free life. When your Quit Day arrives, stop smoking completely and begin your NICORETTE Inhaler treatment. And throughout it all, remember to take it one day at a time—every day without a cigarette makes you a winner.


How do I use the NICORETTE Inhaler?

(See package insert for illustrations.)

  • Remove the mouthpiece from the plastic wrap. Align marks and separate the two parts of the mouthpiece.

  • Take out the cartridge tray. Peel back the foil and take out one cartridge. Press the cartridge firmly into the bottom of the mouthpiece until the seal breaks.

  • Replace the top on the mouthpiece. Align the marks to close. Press down firmly to break the top foil seal of the cartridge. Twist to misalign marks and secure.

  • Place the tapered end of the Inhaler in your mouth and inhale deeply into the back of your throat or puff in short breaths. As you inhale or puff through the mouthpiece, nicotine turns into a vapor and is absorbed through the lining of your mouth and throat and not in your lungs. Use longer and more often at first to help control cigarette cravings. Use the Inhaler at room temperature (15-30°C). Cold temperatures reduce the amount of nicotine you inhale.

  • After about 20 minutes of frequent continuous puffing, nicotine in the cartridge is used up (the nicotine content may last longer if you use the Inhaler less intensively).

  • Try different schedules to help control cravings. Puffing on the Inhaler for 5 minutes at a time will give you enough nicotine for 4 uses. Puffing on the Inhaler for 10 minutes at a time will give you enough nicotine for 2 uses. In a few days you'll find what works best for you and know when nicotine in cartridges is used up.

  • When the cartridge is empty, take off the top of the mouthpiece and throw the used cartridge away, out of reach of children and pets.

  • Clean the mouthpiece regularly with soap and water.

  • Avoid drinking acidic beverages such as coffee, tea, soft drinks, alcohol or citrus juices when using the NICORETTE Inhaler. They can prevent it from working properly.


When should I use the NICORETTE Inhaler?

The NICORETTE Inhaler has a flexible dosing system that may be used whenever you feel an urge to smoke. Use the NICORETTE Inhaler longer and more often at first to help control cigarette cravings. The dose of nicotine from one puff of the Inhaler is much less than from one puff of a cigarette. The nicotine in each cartridge is used up after about 20 minutes of frequent continuous puffing. Try different schedules to help control cravings and use the Inhaler at times when you most crave a cigarette. After you have tried it a few times you will develop the technique which most suits you and gives the best results.

The most successful quitters have learned to use an average of 6 cartridges a day. The dose is based on the individual, so you decide how many cartridges are required to reduce your cravings. For the first 3 to 12 weeks of treatment, you should use at least 6 cartridges per day. Do not use more than 12 cartridges in one day. As your body adjusts to not smoking, you can either stop using the Inhaler or slowly reduce the number of cartridges used each day over the next 6 to 12 weeks.


How long should I use the NICORETTE Inhaler?

It is important that you use the NICORETTE Inhaler long enough to help you overcome your dependence on cigarettes. Normally this period will be 3 months. After that, for the next 6 to 12 weeks, the dosage is gradually reduced by using fewer cartridges daily. Use of the NICORETTE Inhaler beyond 6 months is not recommended (see Table 1).

Table 1: NICORETTE Inhaler Recommended Dosing
Treatment Duration Recommended # of Cartridges per Day
Initial treatment up to 12 weeks 6–12 cartridges
Gradual reduction (if needed) 6–12 weeks reduce gradually when daily use is reduced to 1–2 cartridges, stop using Inhaler

Can I smoke while using the NICORETTE Inhaler?

Do not smoke, chew tobacco, use snuff or any other Nicotine Replacement Therapy products while using the NICORETTE Inhaler because you may overdose on nicotine. Signs of a nicotine overdose include bad headaches, dizziness, upset stomach, drooling, vomiting, cold sweat, blurred vision, difficulty hearing, mental confusion, weakness and fainting. If you experience any of these symptoms, consult your doctor, or local Poison Control Center immediately.


What are the possible side effects for Nicorette inhaler of the NICORETTE Inhaler?

Like all drugs, the NICORETTE Inhaler can cause side effects. Many people experience mild irritation of the mouth or throat, and cough when they first use the NICORETTE Inhaler. Stomach upset may occur. In clinical studies, the frequency of cough and mouth or throat irritation declined with the continued use of the NICORETTE Inhaler.


Who should not use the NICORETTE Inhaler?

If you have any of these conditions, you should consult your doctor or pharmacist before using this product:

  • Heart problems (recent heart attack, irregular heartbeat, severe or worsening heart pain)

  • Stomach problems or ulcers

  • Overactive thyroid

  • High blood pressure

  • Allergies to drugs

  • Diabetes requiring insulin

  • Kidney or liver disease

  • Wheezing, asthma or chronic lung problems

  • Accelerated hypertension

  • Treatment for poor circulation

  • Treatment for circulation disorders of the brain


Are there any special concerns for women?

Women should take adequate precautions to avoid becoming pregnant while using the NICORETTE Inhaler. Do not use if you are pregnant (or think you may be pregnant) or nursing unless your doctor tells you to do so. Nicotine in any form can cause harm to your unborn baby. Only you and your doctor can decide if the benefits of using the NICORETTE Inhaler to stop smoking outweigh the risk of using this medication.


What about the Inhaler and other medications?

Tell your doctor or pharmacist about any medications you are taking—the dosages may need to be changed. Check with your doctor or pharmacist before taking any new medicine while using the NICORETTE Inhaler.


How should I store the NICORETTE Inhaler?

When not in use always store mouthpiece and cartridges in the plastic case, out of reach of children and pets. Store cartridges at room temperature (15-30°C) and protect from light and humidity. If you keep cartridges in the car, be careful since car interiors can heat up quickly.

Keep the NICORETTE Inhaler out of the reach of children and pets. This product is not child resistant. The NICORETTE Inhaler can cause serious illness in children and pets—even in very small amounts. If a child chews or swallows NICORETTE Inhaler cartridges, call a doctor or Poison Control Center. After a cartridge is used, throw it away out of the reach of children and pets. Even used cartridges contain enough nicotine to seriously harm children and pets.


Staying smoke free

Take up an activity that might have been difficult—if not impossible—to do while you smoked. Join a health club, or start exercising at home. It can make you feel even better about yourself for quitting. Some other helpful tips:

  • Try to avoid alcohol, coffee and other beverages you associate with smoking.

  • Keep your hands occupied by playing with a pencil, paper clip, stress ball, etc.

  • Instead of smoking after meals, try brushing your teeth or going for a walk.

  • Try to avoid people or situations you associated with smoking—at least for a little while.

  • Each month, on the anniversary of your Quit Day, plan a special celebration.

  • You may also need additional help. This is nothing to be ashamed of, and your doctor or pharmacist will be able to recommend a self-help group or support program in your area.


Coping with relapse

If you do relapse, don't feel embarrassed or ashamed. Most people who successfully quit smoking do so after several attempts.

Most relapses occur within the first week or within the first three months after quitting, especially during situations you used to associate with smoking, like stress or when drinking alcohol. Knowing that these situations can be difficult can help you prepare for them or, better yet, avoid them in the first place. It's important to have the support of friends and family.
