Can I take Chantix with other nicotine replacement therapies?

Unless your doctor recommends otherwise, it is best to take Chantix (varenicline) without other nicotine replacement therapies. Findings have not confirmed the safety and effectiveness of taking Chantix in combination with other smoking cessation medications.
