If side effects accrue and I choose to stop taking Chantix what is the safest way to stop?
I just finished Chantix in the last month or so. You just stop. There is no weening off Chantix. When you start taking it you step up from 0.5 mgs to 1 mg after the first week. You do not step back down your last week of pills. There isn't an end pack as far as I know and if there is, someone made a mistake at the pharmacy lol. You just stop taking them. Whether you take them for the full twelve weeks or decide you don’t need them after 6, you just stop. Someone from the Chantix hotline said that it takes about a week to be out of your system completely. Hope that helps. 4 months smoke free today!
