How much nicotine is in a Nicorette Inhalator?

A Nicorette® 15mg inhalator contains 15mg of nicotine per cartridge. The maximum daily dose is six cartridges per day. The amount of nicotine released with each puff on the inhalator is less than a cigarette, which is why you may want to inhale more often than when smoking a cigarette.

Please read the Patient information leaflet in the Ingredients and Usage section for information on possible side effects.

Can you smoke while using Nicorette Inhalator?

Yes, you can use Nicorette® Inhalator to help you reduce the amount of cigarettes you smoke before attempting to quit. You can use the inhalator between smoking episodes to extend your smoke-free intervals.

How long should you use Nicorette Inhalator?

You should generally use an inhalator for up to 12 weeks. Over this time, you should try and reduce your usage in line with a quitting plan until you no longer need to use it at all and are completely smoke-free.

Unbelievable how effective it is

I was a heavy smoker , 40 + white ox per day sometimes using the codger pipe when I'd run out of papers Anyway I ended up in hospital after car accident and also tried to quit many times before this , this item is so good it stopped my cravings almost straight away although I had it in my hand using it constantly to begin with But after a couple of weeks I was able to reduce my need for it constantly and now I'm smoke free and my bank account nis reflecting that

Unimpressed

Used this on a 16 hour flight to LA to see if it could help alleviate cravings, was as pleasant as sucking on a roll your own cigarette without a filter, tasted foul, was unpleasant to use and did little to help quash cravings. Overpriced snake oil remedy that I can’t imagine helping anyone to quit successfully despite several 5 star reviews that I’m sure are totally legit.

It really works

I smoked 33 years, I was a heavy smoker, I tried to quit so many times, I always failed, I thought I’d give it try and used it for exactly 1 year, it’s white colour gave me the feeling of smoking, thank you, your product helped me a lot, I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to quit smoking.

OMG A STOP SMOKING AID THAT WORKS

Thanks to these inhalers I gave up 40 cigarettes a day to nil 2 years ago Mother’s Day 2019 and have not once been tempted to go back!!!! I had my inhaler with me all day beside me at bedtime for 6 months until eventually it got filed away...I’ve also got four other people totally off cigarettes after my positive chat with them and this number grows often.... many thanks Nicolette
