Nicotine Inhaler

Nicotine inhalers are only available by prescription, so if you are interested in trying them you will have to ask your doctor. They are also expensive, the most expensive NRT currently on the market. However, since the inhaler works very much like an actual cigarette, it may be worth it for some people to spend the extra amount.

The manufacturer recommends a six month program with the inhaler, with a dose between 6 and 16 nicotine cartridges a day.

How it Works

A cartridge of nicotine is inside a thin plastic tube. You puff on the inhaler and it delivers nicotine vapor into your mouth (not your lungs, like most inhalers).

Side effects

Side effects from the inhaler include coughing, irritation of the throat, and an upset stomach.
