  • I AM SOOOO GLAD I TOOK IT! It will be 2 years in Feb. Smoking is very hard to quit. My doctor was very smart about it. It states to plan your stop date, but she said not to. That makes you anxious about that day. You have to want to quit
    After a couple weeks I just decided one day that I was done. I would definately give it a shot.

  • I took it and hated it! I swear it made me crazy!!! I had really bad dreams when I did sleep. Some nights I couldn't sleep. I knw about 15 people that have used it and not one of them had a good experience with it.
    I think the patches work better and don't have the side effects that the pills do.

  • I don't know, I refuse to take it because I have heard horror stories of people having psychotic dreams on it.

  • how_reb, my husband hated it too, his personalitly totally changed and he said it made it feel weird. He become exteremely irritable and angry. He stopped taking it shortly after he started he just couldnt handle it,but my mother and father inlaw both used it and it worked great for them. I dont remember how long it took them but they have been smoke free for about 8 months now.

  • DH got some from his doc. After reading the possible side effects, both of us refuse to take it.
