We offer the medication Champix, which is a tablet form of stopping smoking that does not contain any nicotine. Champix is only available on prescription and is requested by your stop-smoking advisor after assessment. It can’t be used if you are pregnant, under 18, or have certain pre-existing medical conditions. Speak to your advisor for more information.
Champix works on nicotine receptors to help relieve cravings and reduce the withdrawal symptoms associated with quitting smoking. Champix can also reduce the enjoyment of cigarettes by blocking the effects of nicotine. Champix is a 12week course with a quit date set in the second week of taking the tablet.
