Were you looking for information about Chantix? Chantax is a common misspelling of Chantix.
Chantix™ is a prescription medication that is licensed to help people quit smoking. The medicine is thought to work by blocking some of the pleasurable effects of smoking and decreasing the effects of nicotine withdrawal. Although the drug does not contain nicotine (as other smoking cessation medicines do), it has the safe beneficial effects. It is currently available only as a brand-name medication.
The medicine comes in tablet form and is taken on a daily basis for 12 weeks. Side effects that have been reported include headache, insomnia, and abnormal dreams. This drug may not be the best choice for everyone -- let your healthcare provider know if you have kidney disease, any mental illness, a history of suicidal behavior, or any allergies. Also, tell your healthcare provider if you are breastfeeding, pregnant, or thinking of becoming pregnant.
