Varenicline (Chantix) - An Overview

Varenicline, marketed under the brand name Chantix, is indicated as an aid to smoking cessation treatment. Many people have heard of Chantix through the Ray Liotta Chantix commercials. Push Health enables people interested in getting Chantix to connect with a local medical provider who can prescribe Chantix when appropriate.

How Does Chantix Work

The active ingredient in Chantix tablets is varenicline (as the tartrate salt). In this form, varenicline is a white to off-white powder to slightly yellow solid that is highly soluble in water. Varenicline is a partial agonist selective for certain nicotinic acetylcholine receptor subtypes. Chantix is thought to work because varenicline binds to these receptors, producing agonist activity and preventing nicotine binding. Blocking nicotine activation of these receptors is through to reduce the reward experienced upon smoking. Varenicline (Chantix) reaches maximum plasma concentrations approximately three to four hours after oral administration. Chantix has an elimination half-life of approximately 24 hours and is mostly excreted in the urine. No significant differences in the pharmacokinetics of Chantix were observed due to age, race, gender or smoking status. Chantix is sometimes used as an alternative to Zyban.
