I have a few patients that are on the new smoking cessation drug Chantix. They are reporting some pretty good results. Just today I spoke to one person that normally smokes three packs a day, and has been for about 25 years. After being on the medication for less than a week and not yet at the goal dose (still in the warm-up stage), they are already down to one pack per day. They have called the change to be effortless.
I realize their results aren't necessarily what everyone can expect, but I was pretty impressed.
Just food for thought.
What does a pack of cigarettes cost these days anyways?
