How do
I get
Champix?

If you want to stop smoking, make an appointment with your doctor to talk about your options. Your doctor can ask you some questions to see if you qualify to get a funded 12 week treatment course of Champix.

What is Champix and how does it work?

Criteria for access to funded Champix

There are two groups of people who may qualify for a funded 12 week course of Champix:

  • People who’ve tried nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) at least twice and are still smoking
  • People who’ve tried ZYBAN® (bupropion) or NORPRESS® (nortriptyline) and are still smoking

Remember to collect the full 12 week course from your pharmacy

You can usually only get Champix four weeks at a time. So plan to go back to your pharmacy around week 4 and week 8 to get your next month of treatment.
