Done With Chantix

Scott Says:

I successfully did a month of Chantix thanks to the overwhelming support of my concerned girlfriend, friends and family. My lovely sweetheart told me she was less concerned about "kissing an ashtray" than just being able to having me around for a long time. This is my second time on Chantix. The first time I quit smoking for 7 months and I resumed after smoking just 1 cigarette, thinking I had it "under control". One month's worth this time: the insomnia was bad, the dreams were vivid, and my stomach hurt. Heightened road rage seems to be my constant companion now, but then I live in an area of concentrated rush hours over bridges and thru tunnels! Nothing can help that! Good luck to all.

Thanks a lot for sharing your experience on this medication! It seems like it definitely has its pros and cons. I also wanted to add some links to more details on what one might come to expect as far as side effects go:

bad taste in the mouth
increased or decreased appetite
trouble falling asleep or staying asleep
unusual dreams or nightmares
swelling of the face, throat, tongue, lips, gums, eyes, neck, hands, arms, feet, ankles, or lower legs
difficulty swallowing or breathing
swollen, red, peeling, or blistering skin
blisters in the mouth

pain or discomfort in one or both arms, back, neck, jaw, or stomach
