CHANTIX is a non-nicotine pill.

CHANTIX is a non-nicotine prescription medicine specifically developed to help adults 18 and over quit smoking. Over 9 million people in the U.S. have already been prescribed CHANTIX.*

How is CHANTIX different from other smoking cessation products?

CHANTIX is a non-nicotine prescription medicine. It works in two ways. It targets nicotine receptors in the brain, attaches to them, and blocks nicotine from reaching them. It is believed that CHANTIX also activates these receptors, causing a reduced release of dopamine compared to nicotine.

It's recommended that you begin your CHANTIX treatment a week before quitting smoking. This gives CHANTIX a chance to build up in your body. You may smoke during the first week of your CHANTIX treatment, but you should stop smoking completely on Day 8 of your treatment.

CHANTIX is covered by many insurance plans. Call your provider to find out more.
