To learn about our stop smoking service and treatments offered, get in touch with a member of our healthcare team.
At OxfordOnlinePharmacy we understand the importance of quitting smoking for countless health reasons, this is why we are pleased to offer a stop smoking service. The service means that while previous stop smoking treatments are still long term out of stock, we have a similar alternative that you can consider. We may be able to offer you an out of stock solution.
You may have previously taken Varenicline (Champix) or Zyban, although, while there is no sign of this coming back in stock in the near future you may want to consider your options.
Varenicline also known by the brand name Champix was recalled in June 2021 due to the presence of the nitrosamine impurity. Varenicline was discovered to contain a high amount of the N-nitroso-varenicline, beyond the EU's acceptable level of allowed range of consumption. As a result of this finding, Glaxo Smithkline (GSK) conducted testing on another stop smoking medicine, called bupropion (Zyban) for the presence of nitrosamine impurities, and the results show that there is a possibility of impurities. As a result, on December 1, 2022, GSK halted the batch release and distribution of Zyban 150 mg prolonged release tablets.
For the past few years these findings have meant that people have not been able to require medicine to aid in stop smoking, other than over the counter Nicorette treatments. Although this has caused a halt in the stop smoking industry, people are still holding out for the return of this medicine. This is why we are pleased to inform you of a nitrosamine free alternative! To learn about our alternative medicine, please get in touch with a member of our healthcare team who can advise you of the next steps.

This may leave you feeling irritable, restless, anxious or hungry.
While it may take up to three months for your brain chemistry to return to normal, cravings normally begin to fade in strength and frequency during the first week and are gone completely in one to three months after you stopped smoking.
