Champix (Varenicline) is an anti-smoking medication that reduces the cravings for nicotine. It is used to help you to stop smoking and reduce uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. 

The starter packs contain a lower dose that is intended to help ease you into your withdrawal symptoms.


What is Champix?

Champix is a medication that can help you stop smoking. The starter packs should be taken first so as to gradually introduce your body to the new medication.

How does it work?

The medicine will reduce the cravings for nicotine and aids with the withdrawal symptoms you feel when you stop smoking. Champix attaches itself to the receptors that the nicotine in the brain usually attaches to and releases dopamine from.

Champix right for me?

If you wish to stop smoking, the Champix starter packs will help you to bypass the withdrawal symptoms which may include: the urge to smoke again, feeling depressed or irritable and difficulty sleeping.
