Quitting smoking can be an extremely hard challenge but with the help of Champix, many can stop for good. Champix contains varenicline, which works in the brain to stop the addiction to nicotine. Varenicline stimulates the nicotinic receptors in the brain, producing an effect that relieves the craving and withdrawal symptoms that are experienced when people stop smoking.

|How to take it|
Varenicline is taken in stages. On days 1 – 3 you will take 0.5 mg once a day. On days 4 – 7 you will take 0.5 mg twice a day. From days 8 onwards, you should take one 1 mg tablet twice a day.
