Nicotine

Fatal nicotine poisoning is extremely rare.[1]  Nicotine delivery via e-cigarettes poses little danger to adults. As with NRT, if people have more nicotine than they’re used to, they might feel a little nauseous or light-headed, both of which will pass quickly. If this happens, the person needs to reduce the level of nicotine in the e-liquid they’re buying, or use the e-cigarette less often.

In order to prevent accidental poisoning of children, e-cigarettes and e-liquid should be stored away safely, out of the reach of children, just as is the case with NRT products, household cleaning products and medicines.[1]
