champix advice needed

Hi folks, hope everyone is well and still off the evil little white sticks.

I hav'nt posted for a wee while so need to do some catching up lol.

Anyways does anyone know if i can quit chamix, tomorrow will be the end of the 6th week of champix and 4 whole weeks off the fags.

The champix is causing me a few problems with my toilet functions nuff said lol.

Was just wondering if i could now come off the champix?

Many thanks in advance.

  • Hi trippy

    Ive been on the Champix about 6 weeks cut down to one a day a week ago and ive decided to go CT today. I dont think its an exact science as it effects everyone differently. all i can suggest is cut down to one a day then one everyother day etc and see how you get on.

  • Hi trippy, I agree with Jack. There's nothing to stop you stopping the Champix immediately, but don't do so if it might threaten your quit.

    I did the same as jack, after about five week I cut down to one tablet a day. I didn't like feeling sick all the time. Now I'm just taking half a tablet in the morning, with no side effects at all. Even the weird dreams have gone.

    Well done on the month without cigarettes.


  • Hi Trippy, lovely to see you back and still off the cigs.

    Like you I am 4 weeks quit and 6 weeks on Champix. This week I have cut out the morning tablet as I was fed up with the sickness...I felt sick even eating in the morning. Yesterday I was late back from work, did not want anything to eat so did not have my tablet....

    I think it is very much how you feel.....if you feel strong enough then give it a go, you can always go back if the cravings get too much.

    Good luck...xx

  • Hi Trippy :D

    Well done you're doing great 4 weeks smoke free

    I used champix and stopped them early after just 8 weeks 7 none smoking as I kept forgetting them

    So nothing to stop you not taking them at all I didn't have a problem with it at all

    But why not just take one a day for a few days and see how that goes and if you're OK and not wanting to smoke cut the other one out but keep some by you for a while just in case you need them OK

  • Hi there

    What does your doctor say?


  • I'm on my 4th week of quitting and my 6th of taking champix.

    I had a nurse appointment last week and she stressed that it's really important to go the whole 12 weeks. I was feeling pretty sick so she's cut the morning one to half and said if necessary we'll do the same with the evening one.
