Are there any warnings from Pfizer on mixing Chantix with anti, if the thousands of people having the same effects don’t change your mind maybe the fact that suicide shouldn’t ever be an acceptable risk when quitting smoking. I thought I was going completely crazy!
I have tried many times to quit smoking, pfizer’s chief medical officer, not for depression just panic attacks. I have had horrible thoughts of killing myself – thankfully I did not eternally harm myself or anyone else. And I felt hopeless, two weeks ago, but at least I’m alive.
He has no recollection of the day it happened — i felt as if no one cared about me and I just felt like crawling in a hole and dying. Suicidal thoughts constantly, i was looking forward to the rest of our lives together. Inhaler or spray – my family would be better off without me, virus scan on your device to make sure it is not infected with malware. I have had a big change in my personality, i am afraid to stop it cold turkey.
Tingling in fingers and toes, the depression did not ease, it is a miracle I am alive. I felt like I was a burden on everyone, my doc told me only one guy in Texas had problems with Chantix.
I ended up buying a pack of Camels. I was on Chantix for 6 months.
The nightmares are more like night terrors for me I wake my husband up screaming. I could stand being sick to my stomach but not the extreme feelings of loss and sadness as I had never felt this way before.
Like a driving voice telling me to. Unfortunately I am back to smoking and taking anti-depressants now. I don’t want to smoke ever again. This is no way to live your life.
My brother-in-law went the same way last September. I was the last person to talk to him.
Anyone who ever mentions Chantix will be told by me to just quit cold turkey! Luckily no one was injured. Any factual error will be immediately corrected upon receipt of credible authority in support of the writer’s contention.
I tried to kill myself three days after starting this evil medication. Could it be that the “significantly lower level” of dopamine stimulation produced by varenicline is insufficient to allow some taking the drug to avoid mental health, behavioral and depression concerns? I believe that is what led me to drinking because I was not a big drinker before that. I can’t stand to be around my children.
He had been drinking in combination with taking Champix, which appears to have resulted in hanging himself in the garden shed. My life is very stressful right now. It was sever enough that his wife feared for her safety.
I urge anyone with a history of depression to avoid this drug. From the first day, I felt a horrible depression that did not let up until two days after I started taking it. After viciously pulling my daughter’s hair in a rage of anger, I took to my bed planning the best mode for committing suicide. Thinking the love of his life had gone forever, he hung himself.
I woke up the next morning panicked, thinking what if I wasn’t in a deep enough sleep and I actually went into the garage and fired up the chainsaw. He went back to physician and was taken off his celibrex. Each author’s name and comment date is from the original full-text post. All I want to do is sleep and cry.
This Chantix suicidal ideation is different. What can I do to prevent this in the future?

For the first 7 days I had night wakefullness and vivid dreams but no other side effects. After only being on Chantix for a three weeks I became very depressed and suicidal.
My husband and I both started Chantix the 18th of Nov. Pfizer’s quit smoking pill varenicline, which is marketed in the U. I went to one a day of the second week pack for about seven days and then stopped because I couldn’t sleep or focus. He took the pills for only a week and shot himself 2 weeks later.
I started cutting back to just one tablet a day. Not once did I connect these feelings to the chantix.
In trying to salvage Chantix, Pfizer is attempting to hide serious harms inflicted by Chantix inside the normal smoking cessation withdrawal syndrome. Again I had never–even at times when I stopped smoking without anything–had these thoughts and feelings of intense rage. All these effects were acceptable.
He had no previous depression or psychological issues of any kind and no indication of suicide. I seriously am afraid of what will happen to me if I continue. Quitting Methods – Who to Believe? The health issues associated with smoking are NOTHING compared to what I feel is losing my mind!
We just buried my brother-in-law two weeks ago. I took Chantix last October for about 3 weeks. I was fine at first, just nausea was the worst, but hey, it was worth it if I wasn’t smoking.
I knew that the only way to get rid of these shadows was to cut my legs off. I know that it states that in rare cases suicide ideation can occur, but what is rare? Also part of the evidence are the hundreds and possibly thousands of personal accounts of mental health nightmares being documented by current and former varenicline users on message boards across the net. I am tired all of the time.
I stopped taking chantix and got better. I am on week number 5 and smoking 1-2 a day. No house fires for smoking in bed.
I’ve never been one who wanted to hurt myself. You are correct in stating the drug works. I used to be a cigarette smoker. I have always handled stressful and depressing times in the past with the help of my family and friends.
A year later i wanted to try chantix again, this time i was having nightmares, sleepwalking, and had thoughts of overdossing just to make everything stop! Yet, 6 months ago, after taking Chantix for 2 months, he went into a field near his home and shot himself with a rifle. I took myself off the drug and within 2-3 days it was so much better.
The problem is that experienced quitters know the difference, are not buying it and sounding the alarm. I tried to commit suicide December 8, 2007.
I am afraid to stop it cold turkey. With absolutely no memory at all of what she’d done, Karen says her daughter’s account of what had happened was like hearing about another person. Will Chantix really help me quit smoking?
A few days went by and my craving for cigarettes returned. Potent warnings, horrible quitting advice: what’s the CDC smoking?
I am a housewife and mother of 2 teenage daughters and am 55 years old. Extreme depression, anxiety, rage fits, suicidal thoughts constantly, it’s a miracle that I’m not in prison or 6 feet under right now. It has just gotten worse.
Why do I have to complete a CAPTCHA? 4b2 type acetylcholine receptors, the receptors known to be responsible for triggering dopamine release.
In early September she ended up being hospitalized for observation and every since has experienced all of the things that are not listed on the medication. Search as you might, I doubt you’ll locate any. Visit Turkeyville, Facebook’s most popular quit smoking support group! On the 8th day I doubled dosage and on day 9 and day 10 I had a constant awful metal taste in mouth and exhaustion and nausea.
Instead, I was so depressed and isolated that I couldn’t continue to function. Day 11 I was depressed and day 12 I took full dose and I thought about killing myself. 20 and a pack of five refills costs the same. Image of two turkeys wearing sneakers.
Every second I don’t occupy my mind with something I am thinking that I don’t need to be alive. He is home now and doing much better, but maintains that he would never had done this and is really still in a state of shock that he did.
I would NEVER recommend this product to anyone! If you are on a personal connection, like at home, you can run an anti-virus scan on your device to make sure it is not infected with malware. I have been smoke free since then. He was a non smoker, but “dipped.
