The Chantix Tab Titration Pack is a convenient way for users of
Chantix to ease into treatment. By starting with a lower dosage and

Who Uses Chantix Tab Titration Packs?
The Chantix Tab Titration Pack is for smokers beginning treatment
with Chantix. Chantix is proven to reduce the desire to smoke and
increase the odds of successfully quitting compared to those
attempting to quit without aid.
How Does it Work?
Chantix alters the brain's reception of nicotine, eliminating the
pleasurable response. When a smoker no is no longer rewarded with
enjoyment for smoking, it is much easier to resist the desire and

patients from continuing treatment, which may ultimately result in
failure to quit smoking.

The Chantix Tab Titration Pack contains tablets of differing
dosages. Patients start out with a low dosage, usually 0.5 mg, once

gives the body time to adjust.
