Varencenaline (Champix) Consultation for quitting smoking


Buy Champix to Stop Smoking

Champix (varenicline) acts on the same receptors in the brain as nicotine. It works by stimulating these nicotinic receptors and produces an effect that relieves the craving and withdrawal symptoms you can get when you stop smoking. Varenicline also blocks nicotine from acting on these nicotinic receptors. This prevents any nicotine inhaled in tobacco smoke from having a rewarding and enjoyable effect. Champix (varenicline) is not the same as nicotine replacement therapy.

You need to take this medicine while still smoking for the first 2 weeks, and gradually increase your dose from 0.5mg to 1mg twice daily over 3 months.

Please note this £50 fee is for a consultation, the medicine will cost extra and depend on what is prescribed. Usually £45.

The use of this oral medicine follows a set pre-determined route. You should set a date on which you will stop smoking and start taking this medicine one to two weeks beforehand. This is because the medicine needs time to start working.

The dose is increased gradually in the first week of treatment (follow the instructions given by your prescriber) and should then be taken twice a day for 12 weeks. If you have successfully managed to stop smoking at the end of 12 weeks, your doctor may offer you a further 12 week course of treatment. The tablets should be swallowed whole with a drink of water. They can be taken with or without food. Please always take your medicine as directed by your doctor, or follow the detailed instructions in the patient information leaflet.
