Please consider using Chantix to quit smoking. I used it and WOW, it really changes cigarettes into nothing more than smoke which hurts your lungs. No more nicotine high. Takes away all physical cravings. All you have left is the habit which is the hardest to break.

The side effects are minimal and easy to deal with.

Chantix really works.

Is chantix the same substance as CHAMPIX? That Is what I used to quit Nicobate Lozengers, which, in turn, is what I used to quit smoking.

Chantix and Champix are the same drug. They have different brand names in different countries.

In the Package insert for Chantix/Champix it states:

"Patients who do not succeed in stopping smoking during 12 weeks of initial therapy, or who relapse after treatment, should be encouraged to make another attempt once factors contributing to the failed attempt have been identified and addressed.
Consider a temporary or permanent dose reduction in patients who cannot tolerate the adverse effects of CHANTIX."

So, on the basis of that, I would say that you can re-start it probably at the 0.5mg dose, and keep it at that dose.

I think you should talk to your doctor before you restart this, and get a script for the lower dose.
