Nicorette QuickMist is used to help you stop smoking when you want to quit.
Nicorette QuickMist relieves nicotine withdrawal symptoms including cravings, symptoms you get when stopping smoking. When you suddenly stop providing nicotine from tobacco to your body, you get hit by different kinds of unpleasant feelings called withdrawal symptoms. By using Nicorette QuickMist you can prevent or reduce these unpleasant feelings and cravings for smoking. This is because you continue to provide a small amount of nicotine to your body for a short period of time. Nicorette QuickMist does not contain the tar, carbon monoxide or other toxins in cigarette smoke.
To improve the chances of helping you to stop smoking, you should also seek counselling advice and support from us at Pharmhealth.

Dosage from week 1 to week 12:
Step 1 (Weeks 1-6):Use 1 or 2 sprays when you would normally smoke a cigarette or have cravings to smoke. Use one spray first and if your cravings do not disappear within a few minutes use the
second spray. If 2 sprays are required, future doses may be delivered as 2 consecutive sprays. For most smokers this means about 1 or 2 sprays every 30 minutes to 1 hour. For example, if you smoke an average of 15 cigarettes per day, you should use 1 or 2 sprays at least 15 times during the day. Do not use more than 2 sprays at a time or 4 sprays per hour for 16 hours. The maximum
dose is 64 sprays over 16 hours in any 24-hour period.
STEP 2 (Weeks 7-9): Start reducing the number of sprays per day. By the end of week 9 you should be using HALF the average number of sprays per day that you used in Step 1.
Step 3 (Weeks 10-12): Continue reducing the number of sprays per day so that you are not using more than 2-4 sprays per day during week 12. When you have reduced to 2-4 sprays per day, you should stop using Nicorette QuickMist.
