  • I have, worked well, it is no miracle pill, quitting still takes time and effort. I quit for 2 years after using it, started smoking again tried chantix again but it didn't work. About 50% of those we know that used it are still not smoking.
    The only side effect I noticed were upset stomach (cut dose in half,took care of that) and vivid dreams (not nightmares just wild)

  • My husband and I both took it and I WOULD NOT recomend it to anyone!!! Nightmares, anger, and SERIOUS aggression.
