So the Champix worked great, quit on my quit date. Tried smoking once afterwards, it was revolting. Like sucking on a burning twig; all bad taste and no nicotine pay-off.
Now I'm 13 days smoke free, and feel no desire to smoke at all.
Here's the rub - the pill in the morning makes me nauseous for 2-3 hours; even taken with food, water, lots of milk.
The pill at night made me dehydrated for the first two weeks. I would wake up to drink water several times per night. Now I'm not dehydrated, but I sleep badly. I slept 4 1/2 hours last night. Less, really, because I woke up 4 times due to intense, vivid and somewhat disturbing dreams. And I haven't really felt like making love for two weeks :eek:
When can I get off this drug? I can't take the nausea, headaches and lack of sleep but I don't want to smoke again either.
What happens if I cut back to one pill a day? or stop completely? Is it dangerous? Does the urge to smoke return?
How did others successfully quit smoking and champix?
