  • Chantix Usage

    The active ingredient in Chantix tablets is varenicline (as the tartrate salt). In this form, varenicline is a white to off-white powder to slightly yellow solid that is highly soluble in water. Varenicline is a partial agonist selective for certain nicotinic acetylcholine receptor subtypes. Chantix is thought to work because varenicline binds to these receptors, producing agonist activity and preventing nicotine binding. Blocking nicotine activation of these receptors is through to reduce the reward experienced upon smoking. Varenicline (Chantix) reaches maximum plasma concentrations approximately three to four hours after oral administration. Chantix has an elimination half-life of approximately 24 hours and is mostly excreted in the urine. No significant differences in the pharmacokinetics of Chantix were observed due to age, race, gender or smoking status. Chantix is sometimes used as an alternative to Zyban.

  • Chantix – Side Effects

Chantix can also case serious neuropsychiatric events, including but not limited to depression and suicidal ideation, behavior changes, hostility, and agitation. Chantix can also interact with other medications, including insulin, asthma medicines and blood thinners. Anyone with an allergy or hypersensitivity to varenicline (Chantix) should also avoid using it. People with renal impairment should only use Chantix with caution.
