Is There an Air Purifier that Will Remove Neighbor's Cigarette Odor?

Q: I just moved into a studio apartment. There are no apartments below me or above me, but cigarette smoke from the neighbors on either side of me is seeping into my apartment. I came to see the apartment twice before I rented it and never detected the smell of cigarettes. I am extremely asthmatic and get blinding headaches from cigarette smoke. I just forked over a ton of money for this place, I can't move again anytime soon. I have researched air purifiers, and the ones that claim to remove odors are very expensive. I don't want to spend a lot of money unless it will definitely clean the air. Can someone recommend a really good air purifier that will remove the smell of cigarettes?
