Voke 0.45mg Inhaler is a licensed medicinal product that will be available on General Sale List (GSL) in the UK. The Voke 0.45mg Inhaler delivers a nicotine formulation via a breath operated valve in a cigarette sized medical device. It has gone through rigorous safety testing to achieve its regulatory status. Since the product replaces nicotine from smoking, it can help relieve nicotine withdrawal symptoms such as irritability, low mood, anxiety, restlessness and cravings when used in place of cigarettes.
The technology works with a pressurised formulation delivered by a breath-operated valve, delivering pharmaceutical nicotine, resulting in the rapid appearance of nicotine in arterial blood after oral inhalation consistent with pulmonary absorption. It uses pressure instead of electrical energy to generate a vapour for inhalation. Inside the Voke 0.45mg Inhaler stick are a range of micro-engineered components which work together to closely resemble the smoking experience. When you use Voke®, nicotine is released and passes into your body, just like a cigarette but without the harmful chemicals in the smoke. You can use Voke® as you would a cigarette and inhale as much as desired*. (*Dosage: Adults aged over 18 years: as needed; up to a maximum of 2 full packs per day. )
‘Voke® contains no electronics, heat or combustion and will rival e-cigarettes and nicotine-replacement therapies when launched.’
Unlike traditional e-cigarettes, Voke® does not require elevation in temperature to heat a nicotine formulation to vapour. Voke® works on a pressurised system that atomises a nicotine formulation into fine droplets, capable of lung absorption. It comes in a refill pack containing one stick. Each stick provides a dose of approximately 0.43mg, and is able to be refilled 20 times. For more information, please see Product Information Leaflet and Summary of Product Characteristics here.

Voke® is a nicotine inhalation device that is used in a similar way to smoking and substitutes the nicotine that you normally get from cigarettes. It comes in a refill pack format.
‘Voke® contains one cigarette-like inhaler stick and one pressurised aluminium aerosol canister (enclosed within the pack) containing 20 charges.’
Each charge contains 0.45mg nicotine equivalent to a delivered dose of 0.43mg nicotine, except for the first charge, which delivers less than 0.43 mg (range 0.02 – 0.38 mg) due to the stick design.
