Nicotine Mouth Spray
When you use the mouth spray, it releases nicotine into your mouth. The nicotine is absorbed into the bloodstream through the blood vessels found near the surface of your mouth. Nicotine withdrawal should get better within 1 minute (60 seconds).
Each bottle of NRT mouth spray provides about 150 sprays. One spray will give you about 1mg of nicotine. One or two sprays replaces one cigarette. NRT Mouth spray can be purchased from a pharmacy without a prescription.
How do I use it?
What else should I know?
- Do not eat or drink 15 minutes before and after using the mouth spray as this may affect how the nicotine enters your body.
- Do not use more than two sprays at a time or more than four sprays in one hour.
- The NRT mouth spray contains a very small amount of alcohol, less than 100 mg per spray. If this is a concern to you, talk to your doctor or pharmacist about other medicines.
- Some mouth spray pumps need to be primed at first use or if the spray has not been used for more than a couple days. This means pressing on the dispenser several times into a tissue until a fine spray is released. The spray may also have a child safety lock feature. Read the product information for more instructions.
- Side effects include hiccups, headache, stomach-ache, dry mouth or throat, pain or tingling in the mouth or lips, and a bad taste in your mouth. This may be due to improper technique. Please review how to use the mouth spray.
