I am on the 2nd month of Chantix and been totally smoke free for over 2 weeks... How long do you continue the Chantix??
In most cases, treatment with Chantix lasts for 12 weeks. Follow your doctors instructions. Your doctor may recommend a second 12-week course to improve the chance that you will quit smoking long-term.
Here are some reviews from patients who have taken Chantix.
First, Congratulations!! I was told by my doctor, that when you are smoke free for some time, you can stop taking the chantix pills. And when you are having cravings again, that you can continue where you left off. She informed me that I could keep the pills in my possession, just in case I get cravings for cigarettes.
You will know when it's time to stop
I stopped once, but it was too soon, I thought I could just have one. NOT
I stay on for a cole of weeks. Cutting the pill in half till finally. The drug bothered me enough to say ok. No more and I was done!! Freedom
And I had a great friend with me who helped me with lots of love.
Stick with it.
