How to use?
Press firmly on the tip of the dispenser to release one spray into your mouth. Do not inhale while spraying to avoid getting spray down your throat. For best results, do not swallow for a few seconds after spraying. You should stop smoking completely before using Nicorette Quickmist.
Start by using 1-2 sprays when you would normally smoke a cigarette or have cravings to smoke. Use one spray first and if your cravings do not disappear within a few minutes use the second spray. If 2 sprays are required, future doses may be delivered as 2 consecutive sprays. For most smokers this means about 1-2 sprays every 30 minutes to 1 hour. For example, if you smoke an average of 15 cigarettes per day, you should use 1- 2 at least 15 times during the day. Start reducing the number of sprays per day after 6 weeks.
The maximum dose is 2 sprays at a time or 4 sprays per hour. The maximum is 64 sprays over 16 hours in any 24-hour period.
