Nicotine Nasal Spray Drug Information

When used as part of a smoking-cessation program, nicotine nasal spray (Nicotrol® NS) has been shown to provide documented relief from nicotine withdrawal symptoms, such as cravings, compared to a placebo with no active ingredient. In clinical studies, up to 27 percent of those who had used nicotine nasal spray were still not smoking one year later, compared to up to 15 percent of people who had been given the placebo.
 
This drug is not appropriate for everyone, however. When considering treatment with nicotine nasal spray inform your healthcare provider about any medical conditions you have, especially diabetes, heart problems, or severe breathing problems. Your healthcare provider also needs a complete list of any other medicines you are taking, such as decongestants or beta blockers. The most common side effects of this medication include runny nose, throat irritation, and watery eyes.
