Champix works in the brain to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms. The medication also decreases the pleasure that people get from smoking. It blocks the nicotine’s effects in your body.
What is Champix For?
Champix belongs to a medication group known as smoking cessation medicines because it contains the active ingredient varenicline. This medication helps people quit the habit, when other quit-smoking therapies proved ineffective. Take note, however, that to achieve full effects successfully, Champix must be used in combination with education and counseling about quitting smoking.
Champix: How Does It Work?
The brain’s nicotinic receptors are stimulated by Champix as the active ingredient varenicline mimics the effects of nicotine. This process helps reduce the craving and withdrawal symptoms experienced by those who quit smoking.
The nicotine and dopamine, a feel-good chemical, levels start to go down as soon as you are done smoking. This causes craving and withdrawal symptoms that make you want to smoke again.
By using Champix nicotine is prevented from binding with the brain receptors and this signals a release of dopamine. This means that the next time you try to smoke again triggered by a dropping dopamine level, the nicotine you inhale will send a less pleasurable signal and effect to your brain.
The primary benefit you derive from using Champix is helping you quit smoking when nicotine replacement therapy is unsuccessful and ineffective.
Champix: How Do You Use It?
The general recommendation is to take Champix 0.5mg once daily for the initial three days. This will be adjusted to 0.5mg taken twice daily for the next 4 days. You can continue to take Champix 0.5mg twice a day or Champix 1mg twice a day until the completion of the treatment. The maximum dose allowed for every individual is 1mg two times a day.
This medicine is taken orally with a full glass of water, after a meal.
You must keep in mind that Champix is more effective if combined with counseling and education about smoking cessation.
For people who want to quit smoking, a quit date is set. This is the date when you stop smoking. Consult with your doctor about which approach is appropriate for your quit date.
The three different ways of setting a quit date are:
- The fixed-quit approach
With this approach, treatment with Champix will start 1 to 2 weeks before the intended date of quitting the habit. The treatment therapy will continue up to 12 weeks.
- The flexible-quit approach
The quit date is set between week 2 and week 5 after day one of treatment. This will continue for 12 weeks. To ensure success in quitting the habit during these 12 weeks, it is recommended that the treatment continues for another 12 weeks to lower the risk of restarting the smoking habit.
- The gradual-quit approach
With this approach, Champix is taken while gradually decreasing smoking, and the quit date is set at the end of 12 weeks. If you are successful with this approach, you can likely quit smoking even before the end of 12 weeks. A complete treatment therapy will total 24 weeks as an additional 12 weeks is added after the 1st 12 weeks has ended.
Your doctor will gradually lower the dose of Champix as you near the end of the treatment therapy. This will decrease the risk of restarting the habit.
If you are not able to stop smoking within the treatment plan of 12 weeks, you should try the treatment a second time but only if the causes of such failure have been identified.
You must take Champix strictly according to the instructions and directions of your doctor. If you forget to take the medicine, you are allowed to take the dose as soon as you remember and continue on with the scheduled dose.
However, if the next dose is too close to the time when you remembered missing a dose, you need not take it but wait for the next dose schedule. You must not double the dose to compensate for the missed one.
