An Aid To Help You Stop Smoking
Read and follow carefully. If you have questions or want more information, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION—Read carefully
- NICOTROL® NS Nasal Spray is designed to help you quit smoking by reducing your urge to smoke. What causes the urge to smoke? It is the nicotine in cigarettes. NICOTROL® NS contains nicotine. Your doctor may increase or decrease dosage during the first few weeks. As your body adjusts to not smoking, your doctor will either tell you to stop using NICOTROL® NS or gradually reduce your dose.
- People who use NICOTROL® NS with a comprehensive behavioral smoking cessation program are more successful in quitting smoking. This program can include support groups, counseling or specific behavior change techniques.
- Side Effects—During the first week or so most people experience the following side effects: hot, peppery feeling in back of throat or nose, sneezing, coughing, watery eyes, or runny nose. Wait 5 minutes before driving. Be sure to use regularly for the first week to help adjust to the side effects.
- Because nicotine is addictive, it is possible to become dependent on the Nasal Spray. It is important to use the Nasal Spray only for as long as needed to overcome your smoking habit (as directed by your doctor). Your chance of becoming dependent on the Nasal Spray increases if you use it longer than 6 months.
WARNINGS—Read before using NICOTROL®NS
Tell your doctor about any medicines you are taking—the dosages may need to be changed. Check with your doctor before taking any new medicine while using NICOTROL® NS.
