Nicotrol NS Uses

How Does Nicotrol NS Work?

Nicotrol NS is a nicotine replacement medication that is sprayed into the nose. The nicotine is absorbed from the nose into the body, where it helps replace some of the nicotine your body was used to getting from cigarettes. This reduces withdrawal symptoms, such as cravings, that occur when you stop smoking.

Can Children Use It?

This medicine is not approved for use in people younger than 18 years old. It has not been adequately studied in this age group. The amount of nicotine in Nicotrol NS is enough to harm a child, so keep this medication out of the reach of children.

Can Older Adults Use Nicotrol NS?

The safety of Nicotrol NS has not been adequately studied in older adults. In general, this medication should be used with caution in such people. Older adults are more likely to have other medical problems that could make them more sensitive to the effects of Nicotrol NS.

Off-Label Uses for Nicotrol NS

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend this product for something other than nicotine withdrawal. This is called an "off-label" use. An example of a possible off-label Nicotrol NS use is the treatment of Tourette syndrome.
