I HAVE BEEN TAKING CHANTEX FOT ALMOST 3 WEEKS. THE WEEK I STOPPED I DID GOOD, AFTER GETTING HOME ,I WAS ON A TRIP THAT WEEK AFTER RETURNING HOME I HAVE HAD A HARD TIME WITH IT.IS THERE A CHANCE I NEED MORE THEN THE TWO A DAY? MHELP I WANT THIS TO WORK SO BADLY. THANKS VAL ## No one can really answer that for you, except for your doctor. You need to call up and talk to them or make an appointment, explain the issue and they will be able to best evaluate you and help you find a solution. It would be remiss for anyone online who does not know your medical history and is not a licensed medical professional to try to guess and give you such an answer. Upping the dose yourself or taking it more frequently, without knowing all the information on the drug and its safe usage, could seriously end...

chantix and nrt

does anyone know if you can use nicotine patches while taking chantix ## Well they say you can still smoke while you are on it, because while it acts like nicotine does in the body, it doesn't have nicotine in it, so I would not see why the patches would cause a problem either, and there are no warnings not to do so, or of any adverse reactions in the monograph. ## I was advised by my doctor to not use the patch while on chantix. I have been using the drug now for a month and have had great sucess in stopping. The drug takes away the jitters that I had in past times of trying to stop. The patch will only make it harder to stop and can cause nausia just like the pill that is given to those that are alcoholics. I did not use any nicotine stop smoking aid this time. ## You should not u...

I am going to do this!

I have been on Chantix for not quite 3 weeks, including the starter pack. (The only thing is, I have missed a few times, but not any more!) Am I the only one struggling with quitting? I have cut back to half of what I was smoking. I made my mind up that Today, May 1st, I am officially a NON- Smoker. I haven't smoked since last night, but I still am having the urges. I just have to try to think of something else. One good thing is, when I asked my grown Daughter if this med worked for me, would she be willing to try it. She said yes, but low & behold, she quit cold turkey, a week ago Today!!! Nicotine is a really ADDICTING DRUG!!! I am so glad they finally came out with meds that are not like the patches or gum, where you get addicted to those too. I have heard of alot of people ...

chantix with paxil

can chantix be taken if one is using paxil? ## I am not finding any interactions listed in the databases, however the best judge of their usage together would be your doctor and pharmacist. ## Hi Hannah, I'm on paxil and have been taking chantix for 1 1/2 weeks. I haven't noticed any problems so far.

Duration of time with this therapy

How long do you have to be on this medication? ## Here's the main website for Chantix from the manufacturer Pfizer: Chantix Click Here Where you will find tons of information on the drug and its usage. The site says that most people will need to continue the drug for around 12 weeks, this of course will vary depending on how wel it is working for you and what your doctor recommends. ## I will tell you from my own experience that if the plan says 12 weeks do the 12 weeks. They have studied this drug long and hard and when they say 12 weeks they know more than we do. Stick to the 12 weeks and you will be more successful. Your mind and old habit will tell you you don't need it anymore, just like the same thing for picking up that first smoke after you have stopped (one won't hu...
