I know that sounds dumb, the more support you receive from friends and family, i wonder why some people have such awful side effects and some don’t. I had known about them going into it so I paid close attention what I watched on tv. After this long without a cigarette; i am 64 yrs old and nervous of what long term damage I have done . Something didn’t seem right, i have been so hot and sweaty which makes me feel just sick.
I felt pretty good, i have to have a colonoscopy because I am over 50. You having an increased chance of having unusual, i just wanted to die.
How could he look me in the eye and tell me that? But I think for the LW if you’re having doubts about the story this early in a relationship, then it’s a bad sign. Most of the people I work with and family has succeeded with this drug.
For the first two weeks it was great! After going through what I am going through- I would not suggest this medication to anyone.
I can only guess that while he was at the doctors he asked to go back on the poison. Hope your life continues to be good.
I will say, though, I had, finally no cravings for a cigarette. After a few days of smoking again and not being motivated, I was planning on continuing with the medication. You have enough-You do enough-You are enough!
Thanks for sharing with us. Was prescribed chantix by my family dr.
Thoughts of suicide are a particular worry. I had an old bottle of Ambien with one tablet left and called the auto refill line.
I started Chantix and by day three I was experiencing emotional outbursts, suicidal ideation, and lethargy. Used For: The treatment of bacterial infections.
In any case, the situation will never be resolved unless you can have open and honest conversation about it, and communication is key in any relationship. My daughter walked into the kitchen once, pulled out her stepstool, pulled down her pants and started to squat to pee.
I took myself off the drug and within 2-3 days it was so much better. Just invest in good protection like the pill, iud, ring, or something like that.
Thus, why should the force of habit make me smoke when my natural dependence to nicotine doesn’t even WANT it? Notify me of new posts via email.
I understand how hard it is for your partner, this drug is almost impossible to get off, but it can be done, and I won’t sugar coat it, it’s the worst thing I’ve ever been through! Brain zaps and nausea were hell.
Clinical trials demonstrated a whopping 44 percent of patients were still off cigarettes after twelve weeks, the ad says. Infrequent: Electrocardiogram abnormal, Muscle enzyme increased, Urine analysis abnormal.
It would just help to know this constant ringing in my ears will stop. I thought he was awake because he was moving, too.
Pristiq withdrawal is horrible compared to chantix withdrawal. Might be, but if I’m not crying and depressed I don’t smoke? I have not been going to the gym. Towards the end of the night I took some things that were said by people there the wrong way.
My husband on the other hand was not himself. It is similar to sleepwalking. It’s the opposite of sleep walking actually.
My behavior is erratic and out of control. No, I’ve heard that though. Can anyone tell me when I can expect to get my libido back?
I must chime in here. That is my next hurdle. I usually scream myself awake. I stopped it after 3 weeks and went back to smoking.
That sure is a lovely image. Hopefully, they will understand and volunteer to smoke outside to help the cause. That’s only one of the experiences I’ve had with self-righteous holier-than-thou world-savers. Subscribe using any feed reader!
I had known about them going into it so I paid close attention what I watched on tv. Leave me a comment if you have had a similar experience with Chantix. I think it has a lot to do with brain stimulation. Rare: Renal failure acute, Urinary retention.
I fell asleep with Bravo blaring on my TV and dreamed that a red-faced Tim Gunn was pushing me against the wall. I was afraid to go to sleep. I seldom get the chance to let my libido loose so can I expect it back in the next couple of days or are my days of sexy nymphism over because of 3 weeks on a drug that the doctors prescribing it know F-all about?
Next: The early problems with Chantix. My husband started on Monday and I started on Thursday. I would NEVER recommend this product to anyone! Keep in mind that laboratory normal values vary somewhat from lab to lab.
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. The first time, he thought the LW was into it and awake.
Shivering and then hot flushes are unbearable too. Some might think I work for Pfizer or am paid to endorse this product.
My roommate found them in the washer and I had done a load. Beautiful word clouds you can print for Scrapbooking and blogs, etc.
I am aggitated beyond belief and weepy. Severe depression, crying, yelling, lots of sleeping, not wanting to do anything started around day 5. But since I have had terrible headaches because of the withdraw, I was a little irritated to any noise around me.
That was my first question. The age must have scared you, Johnny.
You go to sleep and wake up in the middle of the night and go at it again. I agree if that were the case.
Instead, I was so depressed and isolated that I couldn’t continue to function. Note related conditions, including: recurrent pregnancy loss, resistant high cholesterol, difficult menopause, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome, mitral valve prolapse. My symptoms got slightly worse, but they’re manageable, I’m never depressed, I’m just really frustrated and pissed off that I had to go through that without any compensation.
I can just BE for hours and hours of sweet, relaxing, peaceful, and serene joy. But when you’re awake and on the receiving end, it’s hard to just go back to sleep after that without taking care of business.
I think that there is definitely a possibility this guy is a creeper, but something similar has happened to me and in my case it’s totally innocent. NATURAL solution for this ABSOLUTELY BRUTAL withdrawal process.
I think it is a ploy to keep you on that poison. 10 secs later its gone again. Or even, lack of their own medicine. I have never been so sick in my life and it lasted a long time.
After all, you’re on the drug to SAVE YOUR LIFE. I was the last person to talk to him. 2 weeks or 3 years i feel Nausea, sore muscles, head aches aswell. It was only afterwards that we connected the dots between Chantix and his brief shotgun moment.
The one at night was just too much and I couldn’t get to sleep and when I finally did I didn’t want to get up. Told me I was beautiful and how much he loves me. Will Chantix really help me quit smoking? Two was just way too much for me.
I would be creeped out, for sure. Maybe I can quit cold turkey after all. I just know that the battle of withdrawals was definitely not worth the pain. Now doc wants us to go to marriage counseling!
I am a nurse administrator and well know the anticipated side effects of quitting smoking. I throw up on the sidewalk walking in to work, I am not going to smoke. I took the Chantix, only experiencing the crazy dreams and mild nausea.
I think it’s malpractice for the dr not to warn you of side effects before taking prestique. Only took it for 3 wks, but very bizarre behavior the third week. Please if you are trying to get off this stuff keep going. My doctor thinks it’s in my head, but I’m seriously so nauseas I can hardly function!
But the masturbating beside you thing is weird. 2 mg for at least four weeks maybe more. Let me know if you have experienced anything like this guy did when you were taking Chantx. The major swings and degree of the depression have lessened, but I still fight bouts of depression several times a day.
We do not pee in front of each other. He was a non smoker, but “dipped. Take time to rest, recoup and treat yourself well.
Its silly, but at least I have something left! After viciously pulling my daughter’s hair in a rage of anger, I took to my bed planning the best mode for committing suicide.
Are nicotine weaning products a bad joke? I also take Vitamin B, D, Fish oil and Flax seed. The transition came after I noticed my anxiety worsened due to a recent illness, kidney stones. He did that for years on the poison but not once off it.
