Chantix is a medication designed to help patients give up smoking. It does this by stimulating a subtype of the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor, which is found within the plasma membranes of certain neurons in the body. Nicotine itself does this too, but Chantix does it more weakly and thus helps patients to cease smoking. Stopping Chantix with acceptance from a physician means the patient has successfully fought their smoking addiction. Obtaining a Chantix prescription often requires meeting a doctor and doing a consultation. It is also expensive. KwikMed are licensed to prescribe online for Chantix, which means they can offer discreet consultations and lower prices.
Stopping Chantix Cold Turkey
When stopping Chantix, cold turkey is one of the options available. This is done through not taking the medication and also not smoking. This is difficult, but if a full course of Chantix is followed, prior to this, it should become a lot easier. By using Chantix first, much like using patches, the patient will have reduced the body’s cravings for nicotine, thus making it easier to resist the urge to smoke again. If the course of Chantix is now followed to the physician’s orders before going cold turkey, a relapse is more likely to occur.
Stopping Chantix Side Effects
The most like likely stopping Chantix side effects are cravings for nicotine. When a person wants to smoke, it is not the cigarette they are after, but the response parts of the brain and body have to nicotine stimulation. stopping Chantix early may leave the response areas of the brain requiring fresh stimulation. Thus the craving for nicotine may still be present if Chantix is stopped too soon. When stopping Chantix it is important to complete the course, which is usually 12 weeks at a time. The course is usually extended for another 12 weeks after a patient successfully quits smoking.
