What is Champix ?
Champix is an effective treatment based for those that want to stop smoking. It is formed from a plant extract found in New Zealand. As it does not contain nicotine like most quit smoking NRT (nicotine replacement therapies), it is not known to be addictive. It is also clinically shown to have the highest success rate of all quitting treatments available. It is a dual action treatment that works by reducing nicotine cravings and withdrawal symptoms due to its active ingredient varenicline, whilst also lessening the pleasure gained through inhaling cigarette smoke. Those who buy Champix online are more than twice as likely to quit as those who use NRT treatments.
You can buy Champix online once you have successfully completed a short online consultation with our registered doctor. A prescription for a course of tablets can then be assessed by our registered doctor and sent to our pharmacy who will package your treatment and dispatch the medication through our free speedy delivery service. You can then start your journey to stop smoking and have a healthier lifestyle.
How does this Champix treatment work?
Varenicline, the main ingredient in Champix works by attaching itself to the receptors in the brain that are stimulated by nicotine. It tricks these receptors into believing that you have already received a nicotine dose so that your cravings gradually disappear. If you do happen to smoke whilst using Champix, it blocks the nicotine from acting on the receptors in the brain thereby minimising the pleasure gained from inhaling cigarette smoke. This in turn should make the experience a less pleasurable one, meaning a stronger chance of quitting with regular use.
Clinical trials have confirmed that the use of Champix is more efficient compared to other quit smoking treatments including NRT and inhalers. Its success rate is also higher than that of Zyban (the only other prescription medication available to stop smoking). In a recent study, almost half of the patients who used Champix medication quit smoking after 12 weeks of treatment. Those who take a second 12 week course are more than 74% likely to give up for good. Its main highlights show:
- High effectiveness working on nicotine receptors
- Reduces nicotine craving
- Smoking can stop within 12 weeks of use
It must be understood that you should not be totally reliant on the medication when you buy Champix online. Willpower and support are also necessary to stop smoking as it is not an easy process. Please ensure you inform those around you that you are aiming to stop, as the rate of success can be boosted by encouragement and help from health specialists and family.

Difference between Champix and Zyban?
Several studies has shown that six out of ten smokers can quit if they are supported by this treatment. The effectiveness of this stop smoking treatment is considerably higher than that of other treatments. Two studies were performed on approximately four thousand smokers who wanted to quit smoking. The patients were divided into two groups. The results show that 54% of people treated with Champix had managed to quit smoking after 12 weeks of treatment, while only 11% of people treated with Zyban (bupropion) had achieved their aim.
Zyban was initially approved as an anti-depressant, it was later found to be very effective in reducing the urge to smoke and was made available on prescription for those looking to stop smoking. Champix on the other hand was developed specifically for the purpose of smoking cessation. Another difference between the two treatments is the cost and success rate. The general cost of buying Zyban per tablet is higher.
The first step to stopping smoking is to set a ‘quit date’. Champix should be used approximately 1 week prior to this date. This allows the active ingredient varenicline to begin to gradually immerse itself in your system and start working productively. Usage is suggested as follows:
- Day 1-3 – 0.5mg tablet per day
- Day 4-7 – 0.5mg tablet twice a day
- Day 8-14 – 1mg tablet twice a day
- Day 15 onwards – 1mg tablet twice a day
The tablets should be taken orally with water with or without food.
It is recommended to begin with the ‘starter’ and the two-week pack for the first month, and for the 2nd and 3rd month thereafter. The ‘monthly’ (56 tablets) packs can be used thereafter.
Ask for assistance if you are prone to bouts of depression to measure behavioural changes.
It is unlikely that this stop smoking treatment will need to be taken for longer than 12 weeks. However, some patients require a further treatment course to increase their chance of success. At the end of the initial twelve weeks of usage, it is recommended to consult your doctor to discuss this with him. The doctor will decide whether another dose of Champix is necessary or should be stopped.
When you are nearing the end of your treatment you may experience increased irritability, depression, cravings or even insomnia. If this is the case, the doctor may reduce the dose of Champix to reduce these symptoms.
A small number of side effects have been reported when using this treatment as the body may need time to get accustomed to the varenicline ingredient, these may include:
- Headache, constipation, nausea, stomach ache and indigestion.
It is advisable to take Champix on a full stomach with water. If you are prone to depression you should also let a family member or a close friend know that you are on the medication in order to monitor any further behavioural changes.
Ensure you speak to your doctor if you experience any abnormal side effects or allergic reactions to varenicline, as you may be advised not to buy Champix for further use.
