hi, wondering if anyone has any experience with using chantix for opiate craving withdrawal etc. i know it's usually used for cigarettes or alcohol. i have a chance to get some wondering if it would help with taper or c/t or what any help welcome thank you
I was on chantix to cut down on smoking and finally eliminate the need for cigarettes completely. It is a seven week coarse starting at 05mg going up to 1mg a couple to three times a day. I have never heard anything about it in the use of alcohol abuse. And would have no effect with the effects of opiates. Look up chantix on the web site it mentions no were that it is used off label for alcohol or opiate dependance, If there is any truth to this tell us were we can find it on the web site?
