Chantix® FAQ

Smoking Cessation General Information
Hand saying no thanks to a packages of cigarettes offered

According the National Cancer Society, tobacco use is the cause of 1 in 5 deaths in the United States alone. A 2008 study released by The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revealed that 46 million U.S. adults were smokers.

It goes without saying these days that smoking is bad for your health on many levels. While many people who smoke claim they want to quit (nearly 70%), only around 40% actually try to quit each year. Of that 40%, the success rate is around 5% without help. Today there a variety of medications available to help increase this rate.

How does CHANTIX® work?
CHANTIX® targets receptors in the brain associated with nicotine and actually blocks nicotine from reaching them, lessening the craving while you are still smoking. You may choose a quit date for a week after starting the medication while others may quit after a few weeks, it varies person to person. CHANTIX® is commonly used for 12 weeks and discontinued at that time as long as you have stopped smoking completely by then.
