Chantix was very helpful in helping me quit smoking. I smoked 1 cigarette on my quit day and nothing after that.

Comment:
This is my second time using Chantix. After about 5 months of being off of it I started smoking again and smoked for about 6 months until I began taking it again about 2 weeks ago. Side effects for me this time are loss of sexual desire, loss of appetite, insomnia, vivid dreams, and dry mouth/bad taste in mouth. Also occasionally upset stomach and indegestion. Overall I feel that it is better to d ... Show Full Comment
