Varenicline Drug Information

Medication Information: Nicotine is a substance derived from tobacco in cigarettes. This chemical enters the bloodstream and stimulates the brain. Most smokers are addicted to nicotine. Although these people tend to quit smoking, addiction to this substance makes it difficult because addiction to this substance is strong and it is difficult to quit. Varenicline can help you quit.

Varenicline is structurally similar to nicotine. This substance reduces the tendency to smoke and reduces the symptoms of smoking cessation. You need strong willpower to quit smoking. In this way, varenicline can also help you. Therefore, most doctors prescribe varenicline for people who are really looking to quit smoking.
