Nasal Sprays containing nicotine are available over the counter to help people quit smoking. Nicotine nasal sprays are a form of Nicotine Replacement Therapy.
Nicotine Nasal sprays come as a pump action spray similar to popular nasal decongestant sprays. The idea is that nicotine can be rapidly absorbed through the lining of the nasal cavity providing much more instant relief than any of the alternative nicotine replacement products.
Nicotine nasal sprays are ideal for heavily dependant smokers as they deliver the quickest “hit” of nicotine available in nicotine replacement products.
Common side effects reported from using nicotine nasal sprays include throat and nose irritation.
