The product works. I have not had upset stomach, vivid dreams, or upset stomach. I am smoke free for about 10 weeks and have only two to go. The only side effect I have had is constipation and 5 pound weight gain and some bloated feeling. My doctor cut the dosage in half so I take one half the pill in the morning and one half at night and that has cut the side effect enormously. The side effe ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Chantix, the white knight of smoking cessation, has the potential of being extremely dangerous, especially for those with pre-existing mental health conditions. I am bipolar--i stopped taking chantix because i found the nightmares intolerable and found it completely ineffective. Two days after quiting, i became suicidally depressed and suffered excruciating panic attacks. Welcome to the side ef ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
The medication does eliminate the desire to smoke (tastes like nothing)--however the side effects were unacceptable. 5 straight days of a headache that no pain reliever could touch. Took 48 hours of not taking the medication for the headache to diminish. This started at end 'end of week 4', so don't assume you are OK if it takes a while for side effects. No way could I take this med ... Show Full Comment
