Unfortunately, there is currently no generic option for Chantix. This makes Chantix very expensive, but quitting smoking can save your life, which is worth far more than what you will spend on the medicine. Plus, when you add up the cost of smoking over time, the financial burden of Chantix is far less than the burden of continuing to smoke.
If cost of Chantix is prohibitive for you, bupropion SR (generic for Zyban) is an excellent option to help you quit smoking at a much lower cost.
