I could live for years and years with this — today I had to leave work early. Of Spring Lake; but I’m seriously so nauseas I can hardly function! When I woke in the morning I still had a headache, what are the Best Ways to Quit Smoking? And on top of all this, pristiq has had the worst side effects out of them all!
I looked in the mirror and said geeze, i am so sorry for worrying everyone, my house is unbelievable. Pain in my joints, i finally got off of that horrible med. On the 28th I had another CT scan.
The brighter side of things disappear. Neurons, Neural Networks and Neural Pathways. I have been trying not to worry, but after reading this, I realize this is probably just part of the process.
There is no change which means it’s under control. Quit date: May 24, 2017.
Even get tingling on same side of face radiating out from left temple. I’ve noticed they have been leaving a nasty after taste in my mouth. They believe chocolate effects the same pleasure part of brain so that can help also if you don’t replace smoking with chocolate. Marie, thanks for your reply.
My throat feels dry and itchy like I am having a little cold. So needless to say my kids had a good Christmas and I loved it. I would wake up in the morning and be a new person. I plan on doing this the rest of the year.
This has been the worst ever. I will update once I have the results of my scans. 5 good hours a night would be ok.
If I read half the stuff I did in past week I never would have started. This will officially be my new regimen. I’m sore and sick but I’m still here. Today is not too bad.
Someone asked me when I would be done with treatment. I tried to sleep this morning but it was no go. I found that helped when I had to go through withdrawal, specifically the one that you put under your tongue. I am trying really hard to get off it.
I have noticed physical activity does help and it came back right after. At times I struggle but I hate cigarettes, I really hate them. But I do know that the cancer around my heart muscle is aggressive and I have to look at that honestly.
And all because I smoked. This is quite impressive since I can’t normally make it through a movie without a smoke break.
I can notice my body is starting to react to my new life. No side affects to this point, with the exception of feeling a little spacey.
I love it and I am my old happy self on it. Now once again I am nothing just someone who has dinner waiting for him to eat while he sits on the couch with the tv on and his laptop playing online poker till he goes to bed. You don’t want to think about it but you can’t help but think about it.
The first two days I was a zombie! Well, I just sent in my disability paperwork for my job. I can’t pick-up a ten-pound “anything” but habit makes it too easy to forget that.
And I can feel the tumors in my back from the outside, not really as lumps but I definitely know where they are. But it’s holiday time and she can’t possibly get away from a grocery store during the holidays. Nor what I am going to be able to do about my mounting bills, stress, anger, sadness and pain.
I think drs should be aware of this though. Today is the third day. I stopped smoking for almost 4 months.
Its a drug that should not be on the market. Well I have the results from my latest scan. I’m not sure I’ll need to continue to take it twice a day for the next 3 weeks. Standing outside in the warm summer light feeling a cool breeze and taking a nice, relaxing, deep breath has never felt better.
I can’t wait to see them! It could have been worse a lot worse.
Now I’m on Pristiq and have been for the last year and a half. Today I am going to the movies. Suffering Insomnia While Quitting Smoking.
Once I got over the morning hump, work went by pretty fast. Whilst it is my intent the information contained within this website be as accurate as possible, it can not be guaranteed. Part of my anxiety includes agoraphobia and the constant tiredness encourages me to stay home or only venture out when absolutely necessary so it is something that really needs to stop. I have had two rounds of chemotherapy.
The next a little less horrible. The gentleman, Jim I believe, showed up exactly on time and was extremely nice.
Eventually he came to the realization himself that this was the Chantix. One of the side effects that were amusing to me when taking pristiq was that ch-ch sound but it got worse when I stopped takig it. Or even, lack of their own medicine.
Definitely know the feeling of going off Pristiq, its horrid. My whole attitude did a complete 180. How are you now Ruby?
Before I went to bed on Day 14, I decided Day 15 would be my new quit day. I am one of those people who has had no adverse effects from smoking, physically I am in terrific shape, heart, lungs, BP. Perhaps rehab might be a thing to check out, although I will say that doctors ect are blind to the fact off how bad pristiq really is. I feel like I’m on the back side of it now since I’m not relegated to the couch all day and vomiting but the symptoms are still interfering with living my life.
I want you to know that just because I am sick that quitting did not suddenly become easy for me. I am cold turkey too. I smoke a pack to two packs a day, generally closer to two packs. I would think my spine would not be very stable with the cancer anyways.
When will I lose my house? I was a little surprised though.
Tuesday was supposed to be a pretty busy day also. Hello Suarezohana, well I am sure everyone is different. I take an ibuprofen, and they go away eventually, but they are starting somewhere during the night, because I wake up with them, and they are interrupting my much-needed sleep. I’d tried to forget how bad it could all be, I withdrew from efexor a few years ago and it was bad.
It makes my days and helps me feel better a lot of the time. I can stay at my brother’s so that cut a lot of the cost out, but I did book 2 nights at Circus Circus, just for Ariana.
Basically Tarceva is my best chance to stay around a little longer. I’ll write again when I have more news. Dropped everything and came out here to help me.
Interestingly enough, on the way into work this morning, I threw two half smoked cigarettes out my car window. I find it interesting that not many people posting here seem to be having the same type of headache as you and I, as mine is very obviously pure tension in my neck and shoulders, but we’re all different people with differences in physiology, levels of addiction, cessation techniques, etc. I’m now on day 39 of not smoking. Was told by the nurse I don’t have anything written down for brekkie.

Changes in climate and weather. So far there is no cancer in my head or neck.
I had an MRI of my head, neck and back. After 1 or 2 drinks I would have to sit down and collect myself for a while.
If the circumstances were different, I think I would like to have continued taking Chantix. FDA says not to cut in half or to alternate days as that is worse. The effect of Pristiq on me was poor judgement, irritability and anger, even worse sleep than I was trying to treat, dehumanisation and withdrawal from others and life.
I started Pristiq for some mild anxiety and sleep difficulties. I will either fall asleep only to wake up an hour later or not be able to fall asleep at all, all night.
I also clinch my jaw and get jaw pain and back of head pain. I was trying to quit because I had the worst day and needed to smoke, I had 4 cigs left in my box and decided to put them up for one of those days when I just had to have one. I’m so tired all of the time.
I’m 43 almost and iv been smoking off and on since I was 15. I’m on my 4th week.
And I lost some pictures, and my desk is charcoaled on one side, and a few clothes. I am very happy about the CT scans results. I was still extremely I’ll with headaches that dropped me to my knees. I don’t know, maybe that can cause pressure too?
Now I know I really wouldn’t be able to hold a job. And I’ll feel better soon. I had no issues the first 6 weeks and was very proud of how well I did. I changed my plan because the one I had last year was good if you weren’t a sick person and expensive if you are a sick person.
I’d be interested in comment from anyone else who’s taken Chantix over a longer period than the 12 or 24 weeks. Starting to feel like I am coming down with the flu. I am day three and experiencing all symptoms.
Then get off those meds! The only way you can finally see how healthy you are is by quitting smoking. I have been withdrawing off of Pristiq for the past two months.
Not sure what to do. What is the Best Way to Quit Smoking Cigarettes? I don’t think it’s in me to give up. Sometimes I think it’s all the oxygen.
This is the world we live in. Quitting Smoking and Weight Gain. I hope you’ll think seriously about quitting. I decided to go off the pills.
She also said it wouldn’t cause weight gain. I’m sure they think I’m an idio because some things just aren’t computing. I started smoking when i was 13 years old and smoked for the next 10 years.
But sometimes there just isn’t anything to update on, so rather than give you all the soap opera that is my life, sometimes, I just wait. Most of the people I work with and family has succeeded with this drug. Oh, and the Psychiatrist wrote the prescription with a Pristiq logo pen.
I’m just kinda feeling like im waiting for something terrible to happen. It is possible that the headaches experienced during nicotine withdrawal are the result of fluctuating serotonin levels. Both times I quit have been cold turkey. But I did go out with my sister today and we had fun.
I keep getting a slight headache and feeling tired! I work with people who smoke alot, when they would light up it wouldn’t bother me in the least. I was also coming down with a cold that exact night.
