question about chantix

I'm reading that many of you are taking chantix to help you stop smoking. I don't know if it's available here in Canada. I'm using the patch, but I have a feeling it doesn't stop the craving as much as chantix.

I don't see Chantix on Pfizer Canada's website but maybe a call to them could answer that question.

Chantix does not contain nicotine so it doesn't stop the cravings but because it blocks receptors in your brain, by the end of week 1 (you smoke during week 1) smoking has lost a lot of its appeal; then you 'quit' and because Chantix also produces some of the same effects as nicotine the cravings are much easier to handle. I've been quite for 3+ weeks, after unsuccessful attemps at pretty much any other cessation method you can think of! Good luck!

Re: question about chantix

arlmon,
I've checked with Canada drug and it is available in Canada. A starter pack of 53 tablets is $106.99. We used to order my husband's drugs from there until they came up with this laughable Medicare Prescription Program.
