Champix for smoking cessation

Champix increases your chances of quitting smoking. Champix contains varenicline, which mimics the effects of nicotine on the body, reducing both the need for smoking and the withdrawal symptoms.

To order your treatment online, please complete a short questionnaire. An EU- certified online doctor will review your order and issue the electronic prescription. The drug is sent by a mail order pharmacy directly to your home.

What is Champix?

Champix is a medicine that can help you quit smoking by making your body think that its nicotine craving has been fulfilled. Champix contains the active substance varenicline. This drug acts on the brain and is a partial nicotine acetylcholine receptor agonist. This means that they act on the same receptors in the brain as the nicotine in cigarettes. Varenicline stimulates nicotine receptors. This means that your craving for nicotine will be satisfied and the withdrawal symptoms alleviated.

What other options are there?

Very often it is difficult to stop smoking without help. This drug has proven very effective in smoking cessation. You can also buy many forms of nicotine substitution from pharmacies like nicotine patches, nicotine sprays and nicotine gum that will satisfy all your nicotine cravings without you having to smoke. Sometimes people smoke to relieve their stress. Dealing with the underlying problems that make you smoke can help you stop.

Do I have to change my diet?

There is no need to change your diet. In addition, there are no special foods that you need to avoid.

Can I smoke while taking Champix?

Smoking during treatment does not harm the body. However, since you are trying to quit smoking, you need to avoid the urge to smoke if you want to stop effectively in the long run.

This drug, just like any other smoking cessation drug, will only work if you have the will-power to really want it to work.

How effective is Champix?

It is almost impossible to say exactly, as it depends on the person, how much they smoked before and how addicted they are. However, the drug is one of the most effective treatments on the market, according to a wide range of different scientific studies.

Can I use another nicotine replacement therapy on the side?

No, because the two treatments can interact and prevent effective treatment.

Dosage

The 0.5 mg tablets are white. The 1 mg tablets are light blue. The tablets are labeled "Pfizer" on one side and "CHX" on the other.

How do I take Champix?

Between days 1 and 3 you must take a 0.5 mg Champix tablet once a day. On days 4 to 7, you must take a 0.5 mg Champix tablet twice a day, once in the evening and once in the morning. At week 2 (days 8 to 14) you should take 1 mg Champix tablet twice daily, once in the evening and once in the morning. You should continue until week 12 (or as long as your doctor recommends). If you notice any side effects, you should tell your doctor, who can easily reduce your dosage.

You should swallow the tablet whole, with water and you can take it with or without food.

People with kidney problems may need a lower dose.

If you forget to take a tablet, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is near the time of your next treatment, skip the forgotten treatment. It is important to get into a routine so you do not forget your pills. It can be helpful if you take your treatment at the same time every day.
