What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.


Nicorette nasal spray is a nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) that is used to treat the withdrawal symptoms and cravings when you are trying to stop smoking. Nicorette nasal spray absorbs into the lining of the nose to deliver the drug to nicotine receptors in the brain via the bloodstream. The nicotine is not enough to achieve the buzz of tobacco smoking but is enough to stop uncomfortable withdrawal effects.

NRT should be used in combination with other quitting techniques including lifestyle modifications, habit replacement, and counseling. The most successful quit attempts often occur when people include their friends, family, and healthcare providers.


When using Nicorette nasal spray for the first time or after 2-3 day of not using it, you must prime the medication. To prime Nicorette nasal spray, point the bottle away from you and press the nozzle several times. It may take between 7-8 sprays and you will know when the bottle is primed when a fine mist is spraying into the air.

To use the spray, insert it into one nostril at an angle towards the center of your nose. Press firmly and quickly while inhaling. Repeat the process with the other nostril or as directed by your doctor.


The active ingredient in Nicorette Nasal Spray is nicotine.


Drug interactions:

  • Adenosine
  • Cimetidine
  • Varenicline (Chantix)


In general, the precautions of using nicotine nasal spray should be weighed against the dangers of continuing to smoke. Speak with your doctor if you are deciding to quit smoking so they can help make the best plan for you.

Tell your doctor if you have a history of heart conditions that affect blood pressure or heart rate because nicotine can increase both of these.

Use with caution in diabetes.

Use with caution if you have an active stomach ulcer as it can delay healing.
