Has anyone ever taken Chantix?

If yes,

What was it like? How did it effect you? And was it successful?

  • My inlaws both tried it, and so did their sister. They still continue to smoke a year later. They said it gave them really weird dreams.

  • I personally have not tired it, but I had a friend who was given this. She had already had about 4 mild heart attacks(before being prescribed) She had been on it for a week, and she suffered a major heart attack and passed away. I'm not sure if the chantix had anything to do with it, but I honestly have not heard anything positive about it all. I would certainly look at the risk involved and take it from there...best of luck.

  • justalady, the Chantix may have had something to do with it. I think people are having issues with their heart after being on it. Here's a link for you to look at and see if her family would find it helpful....

    I did take Chantix and it worked for a while.  The only side effect I had was nausea if I didn't eat.  I am back to smoking.  Good luck.
