Starting week 2 on Champix today! Supposed to go to 1mg twice daily.
Didn’t seem to be too many issues with the 2 0.5mg pills per day. Wondering on the 1mg twice a day though??? The more that I read (even in the literature provided with the product) and speaking with the pharmacist, they mention that there seems to be no difference in quit rates between staying at 0.5mg/day or going to the 1mg/day. The Health Practitioner (Nurse) that I sat down with at the beginning was saying that there may be more benefit to using the lower dose for a longer period of time? I’m kinda leaning towards staying at 0.5mg twice daily for a longer period, since staying quit seems to be the bigger issue personally.
I’m wondering if there’s anyone out there that has any experience with Champix between the 0.5 and 1mg dosages for the 12weeks or longer? I’d love to hear other’s experiences!
