What should I do if I miss a dose of Chantix?

Nina Evans
If you miss a dose of Chantix (varenicline) and it's close to the time for your next dose, just take it as you would normally. Don't worry about missing a dose. And by all means, do not double up or otherwise try to make up the dose. Just keep on going and you'll be fine. Make sure you always take Chantix after a meal, with a full glass of water.
If you miss your regular dose of Chantix (varenicline), take it as soon as you can. If it is almost time for your next dose of Chantix, skip the make-up dose and follow your regular dosing regimen. Never take a double dose of Chantix. Call your doctor with any questions about dosages.
