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.

I took Chantix in December of 2012 for the full 12 weeks and my last cigarette was on day 3. I experienced a wide range of side effects: bizarre and vivid dreams, panic attacks, loss of sexual desire, feeling crazy and out of my mind. These side effects spanned from about a week into taking Chantix to 9 months after finishing treatment. I’ve been cigarette free for almost 2 years. The side eff ... Show Full Comment

In August 2014, I attempted my 3rd trial of Chantix. First 2 trials (5-6 years ago) were memorable for horrific nightmares and the realization that I wasn't really ready to quit.

Comment:
I was worried about starting this due to all the horror stories, but new it was best for myself and family not just health wise but also financial too. I have been on chantix for 10 days. It will make you sick to your stomach if you dont have food in your stomach. Other than that only side effect I have is extreme dry mouth which I havent seen many reviews about this. I constantly have a water bot ... Show Full Comment
