About Champix

Champix works by relieving the craving and withdrawal symptoms associated with giving up smoking. Champix does not contain nicotine but mimics the effect of nicotine on the body. It does not make you stop smoking - you still need determination and motivation to succeed and to break the smoking habit.

Champix FAQs

How do I take Champix?

You should start to take Champix a week before you stop smoking- so before your start you should decide which date you want to stop.   

When you begin the treatment you should take one tablet a day for the first three days, then one tablet twice a day for the rest of the course. We’ll send you full details on the dose and regime via your Patient Record before you start.

How effective is Champix?Evidence suggests that taking Champix is likely to more than double your chance of successfully stopping smoking.
