How to Use NICORETTE® QuickMist Spray
1. Push the black button down until you can push it lightly inwards. 2. While pushing the button in, slide upwards and continue until the top of the dispenser locks into place. 3. Before using for the first time, prime the pump by pressing the top firmly into a tissue until a fine mist appears. If you don’t use the spray for a couple of days, you may need to repeat this step. 4. Press the top of the dispenser firmly to release one spray into your mouth either under your tongue or on the inside of your cheek, avoiding your lips. For best results, wait a few seconds before swallowing. Do not inhale the spray – it shouldn’t spray into your throat. The nicotine will pass rapidly into your body through the lining of your mouth, relieving your craving to smoke without giving you the “buzz” of smoking a cigarette. 5. To close the dispenser, slide the button down until it can be pushed lightly inwards. Then, while pushing in, slide down to lock.
If your cravings do not disappear with one spray within a few minutes, use a second one.

It is very important to stop smoking during pregnancy because it can result in poor growth of your baby. It can also lead to premature births or stillbirths. It is best if you can give up smoking without the use of medicines containing nicotine. If you cannot manage this, NICORETTE® QuickMist Spray should only be used after consulting the healthcare professional who is managing your pregnancy, your family doctor, or a doctor in a centre that is specialised in helping people quit smoking.
NICORETTE® QuickMist Spray should be avoided during breast-feeding as nicotine is found in breast milk and may affect your child. If your doctor has recommended you to use NICORETTE® QuickMist Spray, the spray should be taken just after breast-feeding.

**When used with 2 consecutive sprays
Each mouth spray contains approximately 150 sprays (150 x 1 mg dose). The time that the dispenser lasts depends on the number of cigarettes the user used to smoke and how much additional craving relief is needed. For example, a smoker of 10 cigarettes a day should use 10 to 20 sprays per day, so one dispenser would last one to two weeks.
NRT combination therapy (patch plus gum) may be a therapy strategy for smoking cessation that a health professional can advise to the heavily dependent smoker and/or those who have previously failed to quit with NRT. For further advice, please consult your local GP, pharmacist or smoking cessation clinic.
