There have been very few studies so far that have directly compared Chantix to other quit-medications, including combinations of NRTs. So far, it has been shown that Chantix is 2-3 times more effective than taking no quit medications, and at least as effective as NRT. We know that all of the FDA approved meds are effective. Depending on a smoker’s characteristics, medical or mental health problems, and history of side effects, a doctor may advise certain meds or combinations of meds over others. Chantix has worked for some smokers that have not had success with other quit-meds, but that can be said for each of the meds.
