What Is Chantix?
Chantix (varenicline tartrate) is a prescription medication used to help individuals quit smoking cigarettes or other nicotine-based inhalable products. Smoking negatively impacts every major system in the human body, but is a very difficult habit to quit. Many have succeeded, however, through medically based assistance.
Chantix is best used with a plan to phase out smoking. This includes a gradual increase in dosage to mitigate negative side effects, which can include nausea and unusual dreams, and a set date to quit. It is important to work with your doctor to slowly reduce daily smoking over time while taking Chantix.
The medication comes in two different dose packages. One package is the “starting pack,” and the other is the “continuing pack.” These does packages help ensure a proper dosage during the quitting process.
Note that Chantix is not prescribed for individuals under 16, as it has been proven to be ineffective in adolescents of that age.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
We know how important it is for smokers to quit the destructive habit, and we understand how difficult it is for many people to pay for the medication they need to help them quit. Even people who have prescription coverage may not be able to handle the co-pays—and for the uninsured, paying for prescriptions can even seem impossible.
The good news is that there are financial assistance programs that can help you pay for your prescriptions—but not everyone knows how to access them. That’s where Simplefill comes in. We work to match patients with the prescription assistance programs they qualify for and get them through the application and enrollment process as quickly as possible.
How Does Chantix Work?
Chantix works as a partial agonist to activate nicotine receptors in the brain so that they release dopamine, which produces mild nicotine-like effects and reduces cravings and nicotine withdrawal symptoms. Chantix is different than nicotine replacement therapies in that it is specifically formulated to facilitate a planned cessation strategy that will allow the patient to pace their reduction in smoking and eventually stop smoking altogether. It is important to consult a doctor before and while taking Chantix, as some studies have shown possible side effects that can adversely impact mood and mental health.
