I probably should post this on the CFS/FMS board , but I can't keep up with that board any longer. Maybe someone here has or can....... I have been taking Chantix to help me to quit smoking. As always , RX's can have a different effect on us than on "normal" people. And , sometimes , just a more pronounced effect. Recently , the news has said that some of the Side Effects(SE) of Chantix MAY be the cause of some of the things I've experienced . I had some of the "SE's" stated on the label/warnings , but I've think I've had a few NOT stated. But they are very simular to what has been "suggested" on the news.....created &/or increased depression.........up to & including "severe" depression.... Being much more easily "agitated".....including more anger , irrational behavour , and possible increased violent reaction..... Problems keeping organized thoughts..... Lack of energy &/or an increase in fatigue... Increased or increasing pain........ Increased strange and/or unusual dreams..... Most of these could be connected with CFS/FMS......But who knows ? Chantix has moved me closer to quitting to smoke.....But are the risks worth the "help" ? Input is appreciated and so would someone who has more "energy" of posting this info on the CFS/FMS board for more info and answers.... The answers from the Co. that make Chantix are that: "....quitting smoking can have the same side effects...".....I've tried before without these same effects...... Food for thought & a request for input..& sharing with others..... I've noticed that some people have gained ground with expensive options with these DD's that I can't afford . And relatively less expensive help with controversal options such as "Cannibus"... All input appreciated ! ..Thanks ! Blessings , b/c (PS.....if I find the energy , I'll try to copy and paste this to the main board.....).
