Getting started with CHANTIX
If you have decided to quit, that’s a great first step—but not everyone chooses to quit the same way. You and your healthcare provider may have decided that CHANTIX® (varenicline) is right for you. When starting CHANTIX, you can choose 1 of 3 ways to quit your way. But no matter which of the 3 quit approaches you choose, you will start to take CHANTIX the same way.
After you start taking CHANTIX, you can smoke up until your quit date, which will depend on your quit approach. Starting CHANTIX before your quit date gives CHANTIX time to build up in your body.
