I have just joined this forum after looking for articles about Champix side effects.
after smoking for 25 years (with 2 year off), I started Champix 9 days ago and stopped smoking 2 days ago, although I felt like quitting after day 2!
So far the side effects are manageable and only include nausea, particularly intense after the first 1mg pill in the morning and loss of appetite. I have to admit, being a woman and as shallow as it seems, I am actually rather glad I have lost my appetite as previous attempts to stop smoking resulted in my putting on a lot of weight on!
I am a bit worried with reports of severe depression and suicide, particularly since I have recently broken up with my partner and have moments of blues.
However, I am really determined to do this and as long as I can manage the side effects I'll keep going because nausea, sickness and others are better on a temporary basis than carrying smoking and killing myself slowly.
