Pharmacy and Medications
I have crohn`s disease and am on purinethol and am trying to quit smoking, i was just wondering if it is okay to take purinethol with the champix and my Dr prescribed me?
There are no documented drug interactions between mercaptopurine (Purinethol) and varenicline (Chantix); they are okay to take together.
