Nicorette Nasal Spray - Everything you Need To Know
Nicorette Nasal Spray is fast and powerful relief from nicotine cravings, to help those who want to stop smoking. This nasal spray is a form of nicotine replacement therapy, meaning that you will be getting the nicotine that your body is craving without all the toxins associated with conventional smoking. When you stop smoking your body misses the nicotine that you have been absorbing. You may experience unpleasant feeling and a strong desire to smoke, indicating your dependence on nicotine. When you spray Nicorette Nasal Spray into your nose nicotine will pass rapidly through your nose lining and be released into your blood stream, relieving the unpleasant nicotine withdrawal symptoms.
It is recommended that you read the product information leaflet (found along side the product, in the box) before using Nicorette Nasal Spray.
