Thousands of people die as a result of smoking every year in the UK with many more suffering from illness as a direct result of it. To date, smoking is the leading cause of preventable death in the UK. Nicotine is the addictive component in cigarettes, but there are actually an extra 4000 additional chemicals that make smoking as harmful as it is. Many try to stop smoking each year, but find it difficult to overcome the addictive nature of the habit; fortunately, there are options available. Champix is the only prescription medication available for effective smoking cessation in the UK.
Champix is the most effective medication available in the UK to help with the successful cessation of smoking. Shown to be more effective than any other treatment during clinical testing, those who tried to quit smoking while using it were twice as likely to successfully give up as those doing so with no help. Although the standard course of treatment for Champix is 12 weeks, you will actually stop smoking within the first two.
Unlike some other quit-smoking aids, Champix is nicotine-free and works using the active ingredient, varenicline. Champix works partly by stimulating receptors in your brain that respond to nicotine; by imitating the effects that nicotine has, the treatment helps to reduce craving.
Champix works in two ways to help people quit smoking. First, it provides the body with varenicline, which helps to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms, and second, it stops the feeling you get from smoking a cigarette, meaning that even if you do smoke, you will not enjoy it. Combined, these effects make the quitting process far easier, leading to the much higher quitting rate that is exhibited in those who use Champix.

Unlike the majority of over-the-counter products available in the UK for quitting smoking, Champix does not contain any nicotine. This allows people to stop smoking and break their habit much more effectively than they do with the products that do contain it.
As a prescription medication, Champix comes with a medical guarantee and with research confirming its effectiveness. The quitting success rate when using Champix is high, and in most cases you are four times more likely to stop smoking when using it.
The main benefit of any smoking aid is actually found in the indirect consequences that accompany quitting. As the leading cause of preventable death in the world, there is no doubt that quitting smoking will have numerous health benefits and, although the effects are not going to be immediate, in time, your health will be significantly better than it would have been if you had kept smoking. Champix is therefore especially recommended for those people who have previously tried to quit, but who have been unable to do so.
Champix is suitable if you are over 18 and a smoker looking to quit. Generally, the product is acceptable for use by most people, although there are some circumstances where it may not be. Some of the more common reasons for unsuitability include:
Although side effects are very rare in the majority of cases, they can arise in situations where people are affected by the examples above. Where these do occur, they can include:
It is very important that, where side effects occur, you immediately speak to a doctor to assess your continued suitability for this treatment. Our patient support team are also on hand to offer assistance as and when you require.
In order for Champix to be as effective as it can be, it is important that you start your course of treatment before you decide to stop actually smoking. Set a date between 8 and 14 days after you have begun using the treatment; this allows your body time to adapt to the treatment being in your system. As Champix takes effect, you should begin to get less enjoyment from inhaling cigarette smoke.
Each tablet is taken with water, and it is important that you take the tablet as instructed. When you purchase Champix online, you will be provided with a patient leaflet with full usage directions.
