The volume of distribution of nicotine at intravenous administration equals about 2-3 l/kg, and elimination half-life — about 2 h. Nicotine is generally removed by a liver, its average plasma clearance is about 70 l/h. Nicotine is metabolized also in kidneys and lungs. More than 20 metabolites of nicotine which concede to it on activity are identified. Communication of nicotine with proteins of plasma makes less than 5%. In this regard disturbances of binding of nicotine at simultaneous use of other drugs or changes of concentration of proteins of plasma in various diseases should not have significant effect on nicotine kinetics. Primary metabolite of nicotine in plasma — kotinin — possesses elimination half-life of 15-20 h, and its concentration exceeds that of nicotine by 10 times. With urine also trance-3-hydroxy-kotinin (45% of a dose) are removed generally kotinin (15% of a dose). From 10% to 30% of a dose of nicotine it is removed with urine in not changed look.
