Chantix® is the trade name for the generic drug varenicline, and is a medicine in the drug class called smoking cessation agents. Chantix® does not contain any nicotine. Chantix® (varenicline) is available by prescription only to help people quit smoking cigarettes. It blocks nicotine from attaching to nicotine receptors in the brain which decreases the desire to smoke. Common drug side effects include upset stomach, sleep issues, gas and bowel irregularity.
Some studies have also found that Chantix® may also be effective in reducing cravings for alcohol and cocaine, although the findings need to be verified.
