My husband who has never had ANY mental health problems, started losing weight, please stop taking the drug before it’s too late. I never took another Chantix pill. I have had depression in the past, are Teens Getting Hooked on NRT?
A police officer got to me at 1pm — i’m paying close attention and so far side affects are manageable! Mouthed my step children – we found Chantix in her nightstand with 4 doses gone. Of Galveston Road, what I think is that Chantix works! 6 months ago, it started about a week after starting the drug but I continued taking it thinking the symptoms would go away.
Yesterday, on Monday I was in bed all day not wanting to live and tried to sleep the day thru. Patients may experience psychiatric symptoms such as behavioral changes, agitation, depressed mood, and suicidal behavior while using Chantix. I have had CT scan, Chest Xrays, EKG’s, Nuclear Stress Test and a Pulmonary Function test over the past year and a half. Pfizer’s chief defense to mental health concerns documented by the ISMP report is the implication that nicotine addiction and depression accompanying withdrawal were to blame, not Chantix.
Anyone taking or thinking about taking it please at the 1st sign of something wrong stop taking the pill immediately. My arm was bandaged and the left side of my mouth and neck felt numb, as if I had been to the dentist – but I had no idea why I was in hospital,” says the 38-year-old.
You may report side effects to FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088. Dreams where people would be telling me to do bad things. Oh Joan, Thank you so much for sharing your story with me. She brings summer with her!
You have to understand, this is the most traumatic, horrific thing that has ever happen in all of our lives ! Do Tide Pods look too delicious?
Just weeks before I was feeling blessed that my husband Robert had survived a heart attack. Ice bit of sibling bonding!
I started taking chantix a few weeks ago and i havent had a cigarette in 3 weeks. I also know a few other people that were able to quit just fine. Beautiful word clouds you can print for Scrapbooking and blogs, etc. 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.
Keep up the good work. I wish you the best and please do keep me informed on your progress! 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.
No side affects to this point, with the exception of feeling a little spacey. I thought I was going insane. I’m 49 years old and have never taken any drugs,or had any type of mental illness ever. Dreams so severe that I woke up clutching my chest and breathing very shallow.
For the first 7 days I had night wakefullness and vivid dreams but no other side effects. Congratulations and I am still smoke free! But your life will never be the same.
Still feeling the very intense and agitated even anxiety meds are not helping. I DO NOT RECOMMEND CHANTIX TO ANYONE!
2 pill twice a day because of nausea and wicked dreams. A grape friendship is brewing!
17 page report on Chantix by Pfizer. I’m not sure I’ll need to continue to take it twice a day for the next 3 weeks. He took the pills for only a week and shot himself 2 weeks later.
I have been chantix-free since my hospitalization and continue to get stronger every day. This has been a success for me so far. When I tried to quit smoking in the past I would get the mood swings and being on edge.
This needs to be taken off the market. Luckily no one was injured. A week a ago today it got worse. Has the Crown saved the corgi?
Was prescribed chantix by my family dr. This was all just last weekend. Varenicline blocks the ability of nicotine to activate a4b2 receptors and thus to stimulate the central nervous mesolimbic dopamine system, believed to be the neuronal mechanism underlying reinforcement and reward experienced upon smoking. I am concerned that Chantix might have contributed.
After another 15 days on Chantix I didn’t like how I was feeling. I will be stable enough to work. Mr Moore has asked the FDA to investigate the 150 new suicide reports, particularly if the events occurred before the 2009 black box warning listed suicide as a possible side effect. I ended up leaving in a rage I have never felt in my life.
This last hospitalization I was put under emergency detention due to my symptoms. I too experienced a little dizziness after taking it, but it wore off after a few minutes.
I have been a smoker for 10 years and I have struggled with the idea of quitting for some time now. I have tried many times to quit smoking, without the help of drugs. My dreams were still there and around that time the paranoia slowly started to kick in. I almost lost my job.
My whole attitude did a complete 180. I was fine at first, just nausea was the worst, but hey, it was worth it if I wasn’t smoking.
It is a miracle I am alive. Please post you experience with Chantix. Slam it to the left! My brother in law committed suicide Aug 19.
Maybe once a month or every three months not like when on Chantix and drinking every day every weekend. Two weeks ago, he took an overdose of Paxil and Wellbutrin in an effort to end his life. He had been taking Chantix for about 3 weeks, and the last few days was unable to sleep, saying he was having terrible dreams about killing himself, finding himself hanging, etc. Yeah, my doc told me only one guy in Texas had problems with Chantix.
I didn’t even know where to start looking for him. Months later a visit to the doctor resulted in me getting on Chantix, although it was not covered by insurance because it was such a new drug, I was willing to foot the bill in order to quit. It has just gotten worse. However, while i am amazed at how easy it was to quit, im scared of the person i have become on this.
I have insomina and average about 3 hours of sleep a night. I am still trying to deal with the bouts of severe depression though. I don’t even know myself any more.

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. However, one night I started to feel incredible anger towards everyone around me.
