What is Chantix?
Chantix is prescribed a smoking cessation medication. It is used in addition with counseling, education and support to help improve your chances of quitting smoking. Smoking for long periods of time can contribute to cancer and lung disease.
When you quit smoking your health will improve and it will help you live longer. Your doctor will advise you on how to best quit smoking. It is not recommended for individuals under the age of 16 as the medicine will not have an effect to them
Always follow your doctor’s instructions to get the best results. Your treatment plan will vary depending on how you approach quitting and your doctor’s suggestions. You should have a set start and end date for when you are finished treatment.
Chantix is taken after a meal with a full glass of water. You will begin with a lower dose and gradually increase it as your body grows accustomed to the medicine. This helps to prevent you from experiencing side effects. You are permitted to smoke during this time as long as you maintain your end date.
Once you reach your end date, you should stop smoking but continue to take Chantix as directed. The usual dose is two tablets a day for 12 weeks. You may also opt to eschew an end date and simply stop smoking before the end of treatment.
Do not take this more frequently than directed as it will not improve treatment and may increase your risk of experiencing side effects. Advise your doctor if you cannot quit after 12 weeks of treatment. They may recommend another course of treatment with Chantix or another method of quitting smoking.
Chantix works by blocking the effects of nicotine that causes the urge or cravings to smoke.
