What is the most important information I should know about NICOTROL Inhaler?

Do not use NICOTROL Inhaler if you are hypersensitive or allergic to nicotine or to menthol.

Because you are already addicted to the nicotine in cigarettes, it is possible to stay dependent on the lower dose of nicotine found in the NICOTROL Inhaler. It is important to use the Inhaler for only as long as directed by your doctor to overcome your nicotine addiction and smoking habit.

People who use NICOTROL Inhaler 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.

Remember:

  • Do not use more than 16 cartridges each day unless directed to do so by your doctor
  • Do not use NICOTROL Inhaler longer than 6 months

Keep out of reach of children and pets. The NICOTROL Inhaler can cause serious illness in children and pets—even in very small amounts. If a child chews on or swallows NICOTROL Inhaler cartridges, call a doctor or Poison Control Center.
