Nicorette Inhaler Information:
Nicorette Inhaler (generic name: Nicotine) is a stop smoking product for people who want to quit smoking. It treats the nicotine withdrawals symptoms which aids giving up smoking. Nicotine is the active ingredient which is found in cigarettes and tobacco. The inhaler works by releasing small amounts of nicotine into the blood stream to help fight cravings. Smoking is the leading cause of lung disease, and people who smoke also increase the risk of heart disease, stroke and mouth or throat cancer. Smoking is also harmful as cigarettes and tobacco contain approximately 4000 chemicals, and hundreds of these are toxic and cause harm to the body. Nicotine is highly addictive, and so people who quit smoking commonly get withdrawal symptoms, and may feel extremely agitated or stressed. Nicorette Inhaler helps to reduce these feelings by delivering nicotine to the body but without all of the other toxic chemicals found in tobacco. The inhaler helps patients who are particularly struggling with the ‘habit’ and hand to mouth action, as the inhaler is used in much the same way as a normal cigarette would – by inhaling the nicotine through a tube-like device. The inhaler can be used just like a cigarette in that the patient can use the inhaler whenever they feel the need to smoke.
