Am I eligible for the Chantix patient assistance program?

If you meet the eligibility criteria for Chantix assistance, you could receive your medicine without paying the full retail price. We review each Chantix assistance program application individually. It’s important to note that the main factors likely to be considered are:

  • I am a permanent, legal resident of the United States or Puerto Rico
  • I am uninsured or my insurance doesn’t cover my medication
  • I meet certain income eligibility requirements

How do I apply for the Chantix patient assistance program? 

The application process with NiceRx is simple and straightforward. The first thing you will need to do Is complete your online enrollment application. This can be done simply on our website. Essential information that you will need to provide at this stage includes details about any medications you’re taking, including Chantix, as well as information about your healthcare provider, your insurance, and your household income. It’s important to provide accurate and up-to-date information as this is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who’ll supply your medication.

Once NiceRx determines you may be eligible for Chantix assistance, we’ll handle the full enrollment process for you. We will also request your Chantix medication refills on your behalf for up to one year.

Is NiceRx a Chantix coupons provider?

NiceRx is not a Chantix coupon, a Chantix discount card, or a Chantix copay card provider. We don’t offer printable Chantix manufacturer coupons, Chantix discounts, rebates, Chantix savings cards, trial offers, or free Chantix samples. NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Chantix patient assistance program. 

If you’re looking for coupons for Chantix or cheap Chantix, you will likely save more with NiceRx. When obtaining your Chantix medication through us, your total cost will always be $49 per month.

Can NiceRx help me get Chantix if I have insurance? 

We may be able to help you if you have insurance. This includes if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility for Chantix, or your insurance company won’t pay for your Chantix prescription. We may even be able to assist if you don’t have insurance. Apply online to find out more.

How much is Chantix with insurance?

The cost of Chantix with insurance will vary in line with the terms of your healthcare plan. To find out what you may need to pay, your pharmacist or insurance provider will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance.

How much does Chantix cost without insurance?

Chantix prices can vary by retailer. As a guide, a 1-month pack of 56 Chantix tablets will cost around $600.

What is Chantix?

Chantix is a prescription medicine used to help adults stop smoking tobacco. You take Chantix as a pill you swallow, typically for a course of 12 weeks. It works by stimulating the same receptors that smoking stimulates, helping to reduce your cravings and withdrawal symptoms. It also reduces the strength of the effect cigarettes have on you, helping you to wean yourself off them more easily. 

Chantix active ingredients

The active ingredient in Chantix is called varenicline. It reduces both the pleasurable effects of nicotine and your cravings for it. 

When you swallow a Chantix tablet, the active ingredient varenicline is absorbed into your bloodstream. It travels to your brain, where it binds to the same nicotine receptors that nicotine binds to. This stimulates the receptors in the same way that nicotine does, although not to the same extent. This causes some of the pleasurable sensations of smoking, reducing your craving for cigarettes and your withdrawal symptoms. By binding to your nicotine receptors, varenicline also blocks nicotine from doing so, reducing the pleasure you get from smoking. Over time, the combination of these two effects can help you quit smoking for good.

Chantix side effects & Chantix drug interactions

Chantix may cause side effects, although not everyone will experience them. The most common Chantix side effects are:

  • Nausea (feeling sick)
  • Vomiting (being sick)
  • Gas (flatulence)
  • Constipation
  • Sleep problems, including trouble sleeping, and vivid, unusual, or strange dreams

In rare instances, Chantix can cause more serious side effects, including:

  • New or worsening mental health problems, including thoughts of suicide
  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication can cause anaphylaxis 
  • Serious skin reactions that can cause rashes, swelling, redness, and peeling of your skin
  • Seizures
  • New or worsening heart or blood vessel (cardiovascular) problems
  • Sleepwalking

Chantix can interact with other medications including: 

  • Any other treatments you take to help stop smoking, like nicotine patches
  • Insulin, usually taken to treat diabetes
  • Warfarin, an anticoagulant medicine taken to reduce the risk of blood clots
  • Cimetidine, usually taken to treat heartburn and peptic ulcers
  • Theophylline, taken to treat breathing conditions like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma

Chantix warnings & precautions

Some people experience new mental health problems and worsening mental health problems, including thoughts of suicide, when they stop smoking. Stop taking Chantix and contact your doctor if you experience serious changes in thinking and mood and if you have thoughts of suicide.

Chantix can cause side effects, like dizziness and drowsiness, that can affect your ability to drive, operate machinery, and perform other dangerous tasks. Avoid doing so until you’re confident you know how Chantix affects you.

Chantix can interact with alcohol, making you feel drunk and sometimes causing memory losses and aggression. Limit your alcohol consumption when taking Chantix until you’re confident you know how Chantix and alcohol affect you.

Chantix isn’t suitable for everyone. Don’t take Chantix if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient varenicline
  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Chantix 
  • Are under 18 years of age

Talk to your doctor before taking Chantix if you:

  • Are taking any of the medications that could interact with Chantix 
  • Have a history of fits or seizures
  • Have a heart or blood vessel condition
  • Have any kidney problems or are on dialysis 
  • Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant
  • Are breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed
  • Regularly drink alcohol
