Nothing much happened, except it didn’t taste quite as good as I’d remembered. I took Chantix for about a month.
And now I am dealing with major depression since my husband’s death last fall, but am too afraid to ask for an anti-depressant for fear the Wellbutrin experience could have sensitized me to all such drugs.

My husband and I both started Chantix the 18th of Nov.

Its horrible on it, horrible off of it, worse off. In the past suicidal thoughts “helped” me cope, somehow soothing the crushing heartache of depression. I never drink that much! In regards to the holistic route, one of the best ways to address depression is physical activity.
It only lasted for about 3 days but was very severe! We have two children and by the seventh day they heard me crying myself to sleep. I will say okay I’ll have 5.
The next day it gets a little better and by the third night i can manage a pretty good night of sleep. I’ve been taking the antidepressant for about eight months now and am finally starting to notice an effect. I can’t stress enough that this is just not me. This Chantix suicidal ideation is different.
We try our best to answer all questions personally, and promptly. By the third week, I was having intense rageful episodes 2 to 3 times per day.
Wellbutrin is good and works. I went out and had one drink with my friends.

What we do know is that when health care providers or quit smoking counselors learn of depressive type symptoms in any quitter, they do not encourage relapse or emotional suffering but immediately refer them to physicians for treatment. It’s been repeatedly demonstrated that prescription drugs can, and frequently do, pose SERIOUS risks to your health. I now can not have a relationships with my children or my grandchildren because of the depression and the anger.

He was a contented happy man with everything going for him and everything to live for.
My family hosted Christmas and after everyone left a simple conversation with my husband turned into complete hysteria for no reason. Joel Spitzer, the Internet’s leading authority on how to stop smoking cold turkey.
We won’t even begin to address my aggression and hostility issues. There have been countless times when I thought I was over drinking because I blacked out but in reality I had like 5 beers. I’d spend the next displeased with myself, anxious, paranoid, with shaky hands and a rapid heart rate.

Please seek counsel from your prescribing doctor or a pharmacist. Thankfully, with this last hospitalization, my MD was aware of the recent reports of bad side effects from Chantix. According to Nicks, if she didn’t take it, her hands started to shake. Did I do any kind of damage to my body.

I hate this drug I hate wellbutrin does anyone know how to get off of it? There is definately a difference in mood when you get to the higher dose, and it intensifies with every day.
Her mother tells me that this young woman is taking welbutrin, smoking pot regularly, and drinking vodka. I now wonder if the Chantix had anything to do with his sudden death. I have been taking this drug for about 15 years for mood. Then Jenna told me I’d tried to kill myself.
Someone needs to do something! This person just lost someone very close to them.
Here’s the situation, my son is on this drug for last 6 mths. Do not drink a lot of alcohol while taking WELLBUTRIN. Should I skip one morning so I can drink 12 hours later?

I havent had any problems with it except being very shaky the next day and can’t think as well as usual.

Ashamed to say I neglected to do my homework prior to taking this drug and paid a price for that. But over the past several years, even children as young as three are increasingly being prescribed four or more drugs!

I started taking chantix, and the first week I would get bad headaches, but I was trying to deal with it. It even out-harms the addictive troublemaker oxycodone, a potent pain medication. Am having chest pain and arm pain also, am still having severe panic attacks.
Would it be okay if I started taking bupropion one week after I returned from my vacation? In addition to exorbitant health care costs for drugs and their subsequent side effects, the cost in terms of lives has also skyrocketed. I was on Chantix and after two weeks I began to be the most moody person,did not like my self and all I could think of was I didn’t want to live, it was not just a few thoughts it was all the time, I stopped taking it but the thoughts were still there, I went to my Dr. It has been two days and I am now starting to feel like myself again.

My concern is that I know the combination of bupropion and alcohol can cause seizures, detox from alcohol can cause seizures, and suddenly stopping this high dose of bupropion can cause seizures.

Question: Is It True That 5 Million Of The Cabal Went To The Light? This is no way to live! I had overwhelming thoughts of suicide and just gave in to them. Freczko are correct and suicidal thinking and suicide are a normal part of quitting smoking, then where are the hundreds of news stories about cold turkey quitters killing themselves?
Yes, millions with serious mental health issues smoke cigarettes. The alcohol is a form of self medication. I tried 7 cocktails yesterday after taken 2 wellbutrins per day for 5 weeks, and the effect was that I seemed impervious for the alcohol effects during the first 2 hours, while my colleagues got drunk. I have been taking Chantix for 15 days.
I started Wellbutrin 2 years ago for MDD. Unfortunately I am back to smoking and taking anti-depressants now. I do irrational things and cry my eyes out, try to fight people, try to drive, it’s like my brain does not work. I started having suicidal ideations, nothing I ever acted on, but I would write suicide notes, and spend too much time contemplating suicide.
There have been no ill effects. I feel great on Wellbutrin and felt horrid on Wellbutrin and alcohol. For example, if a person consumes 450 mg of Wellbutrin daily along with about six drinks a day for, say, a year and then stops drinking, how long will it take for the sleepiness, confusion, etc.
Anyways he now isn’t talking to me and says if he cannot drink then he will go to pot. I am concerned that Chantix might have contributed.
