Chantix Numbness

Comments Submitted Says:

After taking Chantix only three days, I began developing numbness in my calf and foot and achiness in my hip. I immediately stopped taking Chantix, but eight months later, the pain is just starting to subside and the numbness is lessening, but still in my toes. If this is what happens after only three days of Chantix, I feel horrible for the people who took it for a longer period of time and are still in agony. I still smoke, but will try other cessation methods before ever using Chantix again. It is not worth the risk.

Saw your post and I have PAD. That is a disease that affects you in your legs especially because you are a smoker. The symptoms are numbness, hip pain, trouble walking long distances without a rest, tingling, etc. Just check it out with your doctor. And finally about chantix, I am using it now and it is taking the urge away to smoke so we'll see. Good luck and please read up on it Periphel Arterial Disease.

Chantix contains the active ingredient Varenicline. It is primarily used to aid in smoking cessation.

As to the issues you were experiencing, you really need to consult your doctor and not just assume ther are caused from this medication.

Just as Rkarle mentioned, it would be caused from other health conditions, as well.

While it is possible to experience unusual side effects, this is not listed among any of the common or rare ones for Chantix, which may include:

nausea, headache, insomnia and unusual dreaming.

I also took this terrible medication. It has been two weeks since I stoped and my hips still hurt. Never had hip pain before it’s debilitating. What the other person said about conditions existing before is bs. I would run for an hour before I started taking the medication about two weeks after starting the meds i am having trouble getting out of the car.
