Varenicline

What If I Take an Overdose?

It is not known exactly what to expect from a varenicline overdose. If you happen to overdose on the medication, seek medical attention immediately (see Chantix Overdose).
 

How Should It Be Stored?

Varenicline should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. The tablets should be stored in an airtight container.
 
Keep varenicline and all other medications out of the reach of children.
 

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your varenicline as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
 

Who Makes Varenicline?

Varenicline is made by Pfizer, Inc.
 

Available Strengths

Varenicline tablets come in the following strengths:
 
  • Varenicline 0.5 mg
  • Varenicline 1 mg.
     
The medication is also available in a first-month "starter pack" that contains 11 tablets of varenicline 0.5 mg and 42 tablets of varenicline 1 mg. This starter pack eliminates the need for two different prescriptions for the two different strengths needed to start varenicline, since it is started at a low dose and gradually increased.
 

Is There a Generic Version of Varenicline?

Currently, there is no generic varenicline licensed for sale (see Generic Chantix).
