Stopping smoking is the single biggest way to improve your future health.

Champix (Varenicline) is the popular medicine which is used to help you to stop smoking. Champix (Varenicline) relieves the craving and withdrawal symptoms associated with stopping smoking. Although you are not recommended to smoke after your quit date, Champix (Varenicline) can also reduce the enjoyment of cigarettes if you do smoke when on treatment

Always take Champix (Varenicline) exactly as your doctor has told you. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.
Before starting your course of Champix you should decide on a date in the second week of treatment (between day 8 and day 14) when you will stop smoking. You should write this date on the pack as a reminder.
Champix tablets should be swallowed whole with water.
The usual dose for adults which you should follow from Day 1 is described in the following table:
Week 1 Dose:
Day 1 - 3 From day 1 to day 3, you should take one white Champix 0.5 mg film-coated tablet once a day.
Day 4 - 7 From day 4 to day 7, you should take one white Champix 0.5 mg film-coated tablet twice daily, once in the morning and once in the evening, at about the same time each day.
Week 2:
Day 8 - 14 From day 8 to day 14, you should take one light blue Champix 1 mg film-coated tablet twice daily, once in the morning and once in the evening, at about the same time each day.
Weeks 3 - 12:
Day 15 -end of treatment:
From day 15 until the end of treatment, you should take one light blue Champix 1 mg film-coated tablet twice daily, once in the morning and once in the evening, at about the same time each day.
Should you experience adverse effects that you cannot tolerate your doctor may decide to reduce your dose temporarily or permanently to 0.5 mg twice daily.
After 12 weeks of treatment, if you have stopped smoking, your doctor may recommend an additional 12 weeks of treatment with Champix 1 mg film-coated tablets twice daily.
In smoking cessation therapy, risk of returning to smoking may be elevated in the period immediately following the end of treatment. Your doctor may decide to gradually lower your dose of Champix at
the end of treatment.
If you have problems with your kidneys, you should speak to your doctor before taking Champix. You may need a lower dose.

If you take more Champix than you should:
If you accidentally take more than your doctor prescribed, you must seek medical advice or go to the nearest hospital casualty department immediately. Take your box of tablets with you.


If you forget to take Champix:
Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten tablet. It is important that you take Champix regularly at the same time each day. If you forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, do not take the tablet that you have missed.


If you stop taking Champix:
It has been shown in clinical trials that taking all doses of your medicine at the appropriate times and for the recommended duration of treatment described above will increase your chances of stopping smoking. Therefore, unless your doctor instructs you to stop treatment, it is important to keep taking Champix, according to the instructions described in the table above.
If you have any further questions on the use of this product, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

You are more likely to stop smoking if you are motivated to stop. Your doctor and pharmacist can provide advice, support and sources of further information to help ensure your attempt to stop smoking is successful.

Keep out of the reach of children.

Do not take Champix:
- If you are allergic (hypersensitive) to varenicline tartrate or any of the other ingredients.

Take special care with Champix:
There have been reports of depression, suicidal ideation and behaviour and suicide attempts in patients taking Champix. If you are taking Champix and develop agitation, depressed mood,
changes in behaviour that are of concern to you, your family or doctor or if you develop suicidal thoughts or behaviours you should stop your treatment and contact your doctor immediately.
Taking other medicines:
Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription. 

The effects of stopping smoking
The effects of changes in your body resulting from stopping smoking, with or without treatment with Champix, may alter the way other drugs work. Therefore, in some cases an adjustment of the dose may be necessary. Examples include theophylline (a medicine to treat breathing problems), warfarin (a medicine to reduce blood clotting), and insulin (a medicine to treat diabetes). If in doubt, you
should consult your doctor or pharmacist.
For some people stopping smoking, with or without treatment, has been associated with an increased risk of experiencing changes in thinking or behaviour, feelings of depression and anxiety and can be associated with a worsening of psychiatric illness. If you have a history of psychiatric illness you should discuss this with your doctor or pharmacist.
Depressed mood may appear during smoking cessation with or without treatment. Depression, rarely including suicidal thoughts and suicide attempt, has been reported in patients undergoing a smoking cessation attempt. These feelings have also been reported while attempting to quit smoking with Champix. If these symptoms persist when you stop taking Champix your doctor should continue to monitor you closely until you are feeling better.
You may temporarily experience increased irritability, urge to smoke, depression and/or sleep disturbances when you stop taking Champix. Your doctor may decide to gradually lower your dose
of Champix at the end of treatment.


Effect of Champix on other drugs
Champix is not expected to affect the way other drugs work.


Effect of other drugs on Champix
Due to the way in which varenicline tartrate is removed from the body, it is not expected that other drugs will affect the way in which Champix works.
