How to Use
The first week:
In the first week of Champix, white pills are taken.
During days 1-3, take 1 white tablet (0.5mg) every day.
During days 4-7, take 2 white tablets (0.5mg) every day: one in the morning and one in the evening.
The remaining weeks:
During weeks 2-12, take 2 blue pills (1mg) every day: one in the morning and one in the evening.
Remember, you should always take Champix as prescribed.
After 12 weeks if you have stopped smoking, it may be suitable to take an additional 12 weeks of treatment with CHAMPIX 1 mg film-coated tablets twice daily to help avoid returning back to smoking. If you are not able or willing to quit smoking straight away, you should reduce smoking during the first 12 weeks of treatment and quit by the end of that treatment period. You should then continue to take CHAMPIX 1 mg film-coated tablets twice daily for a further 12 weeks resulting in a total of 24 weeks of treatment.
If you take more CHAMPIX than you should
If you accidentally take more CHAMPIX than your doctor prescribed, you must seek medical advice or go to the nearest hospital casualty department immediately. Take your box of tablets with you.
If you forget to take CHAMPIX
Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten tablet. It is important that you take CHAMPIX regularly at the same time each day. If you forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, do not take the tablet that you have missed.
If you stop taking CHAMPIX
It has been shown in clinical trials that taking all doses of your medicine at the appropriate times and for the recommended duration of treatment described above will increase your chances of stopping smoking. Therefore, unless your doctor instructs you to stop treatment, it is important to keep taking CHAMPIX.
