    Quitting Smoking and Chantix
    Germmy posted:
    I have been taking Chantix for one month and it costs me 200.00 per month. Right now I don't have many urges to smoke so I am trying to come up with a game plan for the next few months to lessen the cost. I came up with the below options. Purchase one more month and…
    1. Only take one pill a day instead of two and have it last two more months or
    2. Take the next month as prescribed and then just stop taking after one more month hoping one more month of full dose will get me over and through

    I just can't afford 400.00 more dollars. Originally when I found out that it cost 200 per month, I was only going to take it for one month but decided that quitting smoking is worth the extra 200.00, but there isn't a chance I can swing 400.00 more dollars.

    Which of my options is better by chances of continuing to be a non smoker?

    Have you tried calling the drug maker to see if they have coupons?
