    So you want to stop smoking and were given Chantix.

    Seemed like a good idea at the time...


    I took a full course of Chantix and am now worried that I did. It didn't do anything for me except make me smoke even more. I felt like I was on speed and being already very sensitive to caffeine, I hated every day I was on it. I'm pissed!

    Now you have a small idea of why I hate orthodox medicine so much; ALL pharmaceutical drugs have bad side-effects, even if it's "only" liver damage.

    Its crazy that the gov has there hands in all this. What is a good reason to reject a drug. I saw an add for meds for tintitius or ringing of the ears and it caused confusion nose bleeds dizziness and I forget what all. Hell do you heal someone by causing them so many other problems they forget about what they were being treaded for.

    The important thing to remember is that with most drugs, though there are possible side effects, the great majority of people don't get them.

    Medicine is great.

    interesting. my dad has been on Chantix for about 6 months. he smoked for over 30 years and has completely stopped since using the drug. but then again, a few months ago he had to go to the hospital because of an irregular heart beat. the 2 could be related, or it could be that the majority of people on Chantix are old enough to be having heart problems anyways...i don't think this report will stop me from going on it though. the benefits far outweigh the risks to me, and i know several people who have had lasting success with this drug
