varenicline tablets

Varenicline tablets don’t make you quit smoking, determination to quit is still the most important part of the process. A combination of varenicline with counseling is likely to increase your chance of successfully quitting smoking. You can’t buy the tablets over the counter, you will need a prescription from our doctor.

Most doctors will only prescribe the tablets to people who really want to stop smoking as part of a stopping smoking program. Start taking varenicline tablets one week before the quit date (the quit date should be decided before). The aim is to get used to the medicine before the quit date.

The usual medical advice is to start with 0.5 mg for the first three days. Then 0.5 mg twice a day on days four to seven. Eventually, 1 mg should be taken twice a day for 11 weeks. Take doses with a full glass of water, preferably after meals. Ideally, it would be after breakfast and after the dinner.

    This is very well said that only the intake of the medicine won’t help you quit smoking, but the will power to quit will work. However, Champix contains the active ingredient varenicline and works by blocking the effects of nicotine in your body. This can help you to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms and reduce your enjoyment of cigarettes if you do smoke while on treatment.

    I have pleased to read the entirety. By the way, you can take each dose with a glass of water – do not chew or break the tablets before you swallow. If you do forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember unless it is nearly time for your next dose. Do not take two doses together to make up for a forgotten dose. The reading is helpful. Keep posting things like this.

    I recently read that a deadly incident in Texas has prompted the FDA to issue a warning that varenicline may cause suicidal behaviors. It’s said it can help you to quit smoking, but better be a smoker than suicidal I guess. Anyway, thanks for sharing.
