How it works?
Varenicline belongs to a group of medicines called nicotinic receptor partial agonists. It works by blocking the effect of nicotine (which are experienced upon smoking) on the brain.

This can help you to have fewer cravings and withdrawal symptoms from smoking and reduce your enjoyment of cigarettes if you do smoke while on treatment.
When you smoke cigarettes, nicotine binds to receptors in your brain, which triggers the release of a feel-good chemical messenger called dopamine. Shortly after you?ve had a smoke, nicotine and dopamine levels start to drop so you get craving and withdrawal feelings, making you want another cigarette.
