How we help

Get Chantix or Zyban stop smoking medicines

We set up Lemonaid to make it simple to get the convenient affordable care you need regardless of insurance. Helping Americans stop smoking is one of the most important things we can do.

Our doctors can give you a 3-month prescription for prescription-only stop smoking medicines without you having to go to a doctor’s office. The medicines we prescribe are more effective than over-the-counter medicines you can buy at a pharmacy. We also recommend free programs that provide support as you try to quit smoking.

ABOUT STOP SMOKING MEDICINES

About Chantix and Zyban

Chantix and Zyban help reduce nicotine cravings. This can make it easier to quit. Cravings are typically worse in the first week and can last from 3-4 weeks.

The medicines aren’t guaranteed to work but can double your chance of success. Some studies suggest that Chantix is slightly more effective than Zyban. Zyban, though, is about 1/10th the price of Chantix. Chantix and Zyban are more effective than over-the-counter medicines such as nicotine patches, gum and lozenges.

Our doctors prescribe a 3-month supply of your stop smoking medicine.

HOW STOP SMOKING VISITS WORK

A Lemonaid visit only takes a few minutes

Select Chantix or Zyban

Select the stop smoking medicine you want. Both may be covered by insurance, but if you don’t have a health plan then Zyban is way more affordable.

Answer our health questions

Answer our questions that cover your medical history, current medicines and any stop smoking medicines you’ve taken before.

Select a pharmacy

Choose any pharmacy in your state. We’ll send your prescription to the pharmacy electronically. If you don’t have insurance, make sure you choose a pharmacy that accepts coupon codes from GoodRx.

Pay visit fee

Pay the visit fee to us. At the pharmacy, you’ll pay for the cost of your medicine. If you have insurance, your health plan may cover your stop smoking medicines.

Doctor review

You’ll immediately have a short video consultation with a member of our medical team. If you’re in IL, NY, PA, WA, you don't need to do a video chat. The medical team will message you within 2 hrs.

Go to pharmacy to pick-up medicines

Wait for one of our doctors or nurse practitioners to message you that we’ve given you a prescription for Chantix or Zyban. Then go to the pharmacy to pick up and pay for it. Make sure you read the treatment plan we send you before using the medicines.

TREATMENT & RISKS

Risks and benefits of stop smoking medicines

Stopping smoking can make a positive impact on your overall health. The prescription medicines we prescribe can increase the chances of you stopping for good. If you continue to smoke, you’re at risk of complications from smoking that include heart attack, emphysema, cancer and premature death.

On the flip side, the medicines we prescribe are generally safe but can cause serious side-effects. They can increase the risk of suicidal thoughts and behavior and can cause a severe allergic reaction that can lead to disability and even death. Each medicine has a unique set of side effects.

Before taking any medicine, always read the package insert that comes with your medicine for a full list of side effects and warnings.
