This medication helps smokers detoxify tobacco. The solution brings into the blood via the oral mucosa , nicotine, the main active substance in tobacco, responsible for addiction.
WARNING (Contents)
With a view to definitive detoxification, cessation of smoking is a necessary condition for successful treatment.
Precautions are necessary in case of severe heart disease (recent myocardial infarction, recent angina pectoris , Printzmetal angina, severe heart rhythm disorders , stroke ), stomach ulcer or duodenal ulcer , hyperthyroidism , pheochromocytoma , diabetes , renal insufficiency or liver failure . In these situations, a prior medical consultation is essential before using this medication; a cessation of smoking without substitution treatment may be necessary.
Nicotine is a toxic substance. Do not leave the vial within reach of children. The use of this medication is reserved for adults over 18 years (in the absence of studies).
The products contained in tobacco smoke can accelerate the rate of elimination of certain drugs, especially theophylline. When smoking cessation, these drugs can see their effect strengthened and signs of overdose may appear. Contact your doctor in case of any doubt.
Pregnancy :
Smoking in pregnant women may cause fetal growth retardation. Stopping tobacco is always desirable. In women who are highly dependent on nicotine, the use of this medication may be an aid, but the effects of nicotine alone on the fetus are poorly understood. This drug has the advantage of not exposing the fetus to other toxic substances present in tobacco smoke. In summary: if the ideal is not to smoke and not to expose the fetus to nicotine intake, the use of this drug is a lesser evil compared to tobacco.

Nicotine passes into breast milk, and breast-feeding is not recommended during treatment.
The solution should be sprayed into the mouth avoiding the lips. For better effectiveness, it is important to avoid swallowing saliva within seconds of spraying.
In practice, it is useful to know the signs of under or overdose to adapt the dosage after a few days of treatment:
  • the overdose results in the condition of the smoker who has smoked too much and is mainly reflected in a nauseous condition and headaches. Difficulty in sight or hearing, trembling, dizziness are also possible;
  • an under-dosage causes symptoms of lack: irritability, nervousness, stomach cramps (kind of painful hunger), difficulty concentrating.

Usual dosage:

  • Adult: in a first phase of 6 weeks, do a spray whenever the need for smoking is felt, usually 1 or 2 times per hour. If the urge persists after a few minutes, repeat the spray. Do not exceed 2 sprays per intake and 64 sprays per day.
    A second phase, which usually lasts 3 weeks, corresponds to a halving of the number of sprays per day.
    Then, for a few weeks, we must continue to reduce the number of sprays until complete cessation.
Do not exceed 6 months of continuous treatment.
TIPS (summary)
This medication can be used by smokers without medical advice. It is available without a prescription and can be accessed directly in certain pharmacies. Nevertheless, do not hesitate to have your choice chosen by your pharmacist. His advice is precious. He can help you determine the best time to quit and explain the causes of failure.
Nicotine taken by way oral replacing the cigarette has the same cardiovascular harmful than that in tobacco. Only the risk of lung cancer disappears. When smoking cessation is motivated by urgent medical reasons: recent infarction , arteritis , gastritis or ulcer , it is preferable to stop the absorption of nicotine in all its forms.
like all smoke-free methods used to help smokers, this drug can only be effective when the will to quit is personal and accompanied by strong motivation. it is this motivation that will make it possible to fight against the desire to smoke, without being forced to make constant appeal to the will that dulls over time. A cessation of lasting tobacco in the smoker assumes that the smoker considers tobacco to be a poison, an unacceptable addiction. It must be done to the idea that it will never smoke, from the beginning of weaning. Every day without tobacco must be experienced as a release, not as a calvary. The smoker who is in this state of mind is a good candidate for definitive weaning.
Stopping smoking, which is a real drug, causes many problems: weight gain is frequent, concentration disorders can last several weeks. A mild depressive condition is possible. Weight gain should be fought by a diet, and if possible by a sports program that has the advantage of reconciling the smoker with his body.
Do not hesitate to consult your doctor in case of difficulty; his advice and experience will be invaluable in the fight against relapses.
During the first few days of treatment, irritation of the mouth or throat and hiccups are particularly common. These effects usually decrease with continued treatment.
Very common: nausea, difficult digestion, excessive salivation or, on the contrary, dry mouth, burning sensation of the lips, headaches, disorders of taste, inflammation of the oral mucosa.
Frequent: vomiting, diarrhea, bloating, tight throat, tiredness.
Uncommon: tingling, watery eyes, palpitations , flushing, shortness of breath, stuffy or runny nose, sneezing, gingivitis, tongue inflammation, sweating, rash, itching, hoarseness, hoarse voice.
Rarely: blurred vision, heart rhythm disorders , allergic reaction .

The word diabetes, used alone, is generally related to diabetes mellitus, which corresponds to a disruption in the regulation of the body's sugars by insulin. It results in increased sugar (glucose) in the blood and its possible presence in the urine. There are two types of diabetes mellitus: Type 1 or insulin-dependent diabetes, which requires insulin injections, and type 2 or non-insulin dependent diabetes, which can initially be treated with oral antidiabetics.

Therapeutic indications

NICORETTESPRAY is used to help smokers quit smoking. This is a Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) therapy.

When the body is brutally deprived of nicotine brought by tobacco, it feels different types of unpleasant sensations, called withdrawal symptoms. The use of NICORETTESPRAY helps to prevent or reduce these unpleasant sensations and irresistible cravings for smoking. These effects are achieved through the small amount of nicotine that the body continues to receive for a short period of time. NICORETTESPRAY is less harmful than smoking.

Step 1 : Weeks 1 to 6

Use 1 or 2 sprays at the usual times of tobacco consumption or in case of an irrepressible urge to smoke. Start with a spray, and if the urge to smoke does not disappear after a few minutes, use a second spray. If two sprays are required, subsequent doses may consist of 2 consecutive sprays. Most smokers should use about 1 or 2 sprays every 30 minutes to 1 hour.

For example, with an average consumption of 15 cigarettes per day, 1 to 2 sprays should be used at least 15 times per day.

The maximum dose is 2 sprays per intake, 4 sprays per hour and 64 sprays per day.

When the treatment stops, you may be tempted to smoke again. Keep a sprayer in reserve as the urge to smoke can suddenly reappear. If you have an irresistible urge to smoke, use one or two sprays if the effects of a single spray are insufficient after a few minutes.

As soon as you stop smoking:

· you will no longer absorb the irritating and toxic substances of the cigarette,

· you can see some improvements: progressive disappearance of headaches, cough, irritation of the throat, shortness of breath,

· you will often have the satisfaction of regaining better sleep, food flavor, odor and improve your physical performance,

· you will reduce your risk of developing lung cancer or cardiovascular disease.

Moreover, in cardiac or arterial diseases (angina pectoris, arteritis of the lower limbs ...), it is particularly imperative to succeed in quitting smoking.

What is tobacco dependence?

Tobacco addiction is twofold:

· Psychological dependence

Smoking a cigarette involves a ritual of automatic and repetitive gestures associated with particular circumstances (pleasure, response to stress, intellectual stimulation, support for morale, need for a gesture of conviviality). This is psychological and behavioral dependence.

· Physical dependence:

The need for the nicotine body is due to the effects of this substance on the nervous system. This is physical dependence. Failure to satisfy this need results in a sense of lack (see description in the chapter "How to overcome your physical dependence?").

Nicotinic substitutes aim to treat this dependence.

How to overcome your psychological addiction?

o throw away your last pack of cigarettes, your lighter and put away your ashtrays,

o in a couple of smokers, it is preferable that the attempt to stop is made at the same time by both spouses.

· Tell your family and co-workers that you quit smoking. Ask them to respect your decision (no smoking near you, no longer offering you cigarettes).

· Prepare yourself to cope with the desire to smoke. It can occur suddenly and severely, especially during the first few weeks after the cessation of smoking, but does not last more than 3 or 4 minutes.

You have to anticipate what you will do in this case and act very quickly so as not to "crack" as for example:

o drink a large glass of water,

o to chew gum,

o counting up to 100,

o do some deep breaths,

o out of the room,

o change activity ...

· Avoid situations associated with taking cigarettes (coffee, aperitif, ...), avoid temptations (settle with non-smokers).

Find cigarette compensation (leisure, sport, cultural activity ...).
