About stop smoking treatment

  • Champix prescription treatment

    Champix is a prescription treatment containing the active ingredient varenicline. This reduces the cravings and withdrawal symptoms that occur when you stop smoking. For best effect, a 12-week course should be completed.

  • Side effects

    There are side effects associated with Champix. These can include headaches, feeling sick and digestive problems. In severe cases, it can cause changes in your behaviour and depression. Full details about side effects are in the patient information leaflet.

    We will assess your suitability for Champix when you request the treatment. If you have any concerns, contact us via your Patient Record or speak to your GP. 

  • Benefits of stopping smoking

    Quitting can be challenging, but the benefits to your body and health are significant. Smoking is the cause of 20% of all adult deaths in England. It's also proven to contribute to heart disease, lung cancer and stroke. Once you stop smoking, your risk of developing long-term illness decreases, your breathing can improve and you may find you have more energy. You'll also protect the health of those around you by not exposing them to second-hand smoke.
