Well it's been a bit over two weeks since i quit smoking and I'm still taking Champix. At first the pills didn't really affect me too much, but now they are having some aggrevating side effects. The graphic and disturbing nightmares are almost too much to be worth taking the medication. And mood swings out of nowhere and about nothing is a little too much too. And finally - the sick feeling all day. I'm weighing up whether or not to keep taking it or to just stop altogether. I am not smoking and don't want to go back to it, but the side effects are starting to become a problem. I think I will talk to the doctor and see what he thinks- even though I was there last week and he prescribed me another script for it- so obviously he thought it was all good. I really want to stay quit, so for now I'm just gonna tough it out till I see the doctor.
