The Nicorette Inhaler is a prescription medication used to help people quit smoking. It is a form of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) that provides a low level of nicotine to help reduce withdrawal symptoms and cravings. 

The inhaler is a small, hand-held device that contains a cartridge filled with nicotine. When you use the inhaler, you puff on the mouthpiece, which draws air through the cartridge and vaporizes the nicotine. The nicotine is then absorbed into your bloodstream through the lining of your mouth and throat. 


  • Use exactly as directed by your healthcare provider. This includes frequency (puffs per session, total inhales per day), duration of use, and any specific instructions for using the inhaler.
  • Read and follow all the instructions that come with your Nicorette inhaler.
  • Prime the inhaler if required by the manufacturer's instructions (usually done before first use).
  • Inhale slowly and deeply through the mouthpiece when using the inhaler.
  • Hold your breath for a few seconds after inhaling to allow nicotine to be absorbed.
  • Allow sufficient time between puffs (refer to product instructions).
  • Track your progress in quitting smoking and celebrate milestones.
  • Consider using a support group or quitting smoking program for additional help.


  • Don't exceed the recommended dosage of puffs per session or total daily inhales.
  • Don't use the inhaler if you are not trying to quit smoking. Nicorette contains nicotine, which is addictive.
  • Don't use the inhaler if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Nicotine can harm your baby.
  • Don't swallow the nicotine cartridge or mouthpiece.
  • Don't share your inhaler with others.
  • Don't use the inhaler after the expiration date.
