It is not known exactly what to expect from a Chantix overdose. If you happen to take too much, seek prompt medical attention.
(Click Chantix Overdose for more information.)
Chantix should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. The tablets should be stored in an airtight container. Keep Chantix and all other medications out of the reach of children.
If you do not take your Chantix as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
Chantix tablets come in the following strengths:
- Chantix 0.5 mg
- Chantix 1 mg.
Chantix is also available in a first-month "starter pack" that contains 11 tablets of Chantix 0.5 mg and 42 tablets of Chantix 1 mg. This starter pack eliminates the need for two different prescriptions for the two different strengths needed to start the drug, since it is started at a low dose and gradually increased.
Currently, no generic versions of Chantix are licensed for sale (see Generic Chantix).
