Advice

Following a full submission.

 Varenicline tablets (Champix®) is accepted for use within NHS Scotland for smoking cessation in adults. It should be used only as a component of a smoking cessation support programme. The benefits of an additional treatment course in those who have stopped smoking after the initial 12 weeks of therapy appear modest.

Efficacy and safety in patients with significant co-morbidity are uncertain.
