Last week i started to realise that the Champix was making me feel a bit anxious. I'm going through a stressful time at the moment, so it wasn't easy to spot this. The Champix was adding a layer of anxiety on top of what i would be feeling anyway.
Anyhow, I decided to reduce the dose. I was on 1mg twice a day. I started cutting the tablets in half and having 3x one half per day. The first day was fine. The second and third days gave medium to strong cravings. Subsequent days have seen mild or virtually no cravings at all. I had very mild nausea on the first day, which dissappeared on later days. The excess anxiety has gone away.
I had an appointment with the Doctor today, and asked him about cutting the tablets in half. He said it was fine to do this if I wanted to.
I'm now planning to reduce by half a tablet every fortnight, so should be off the Champix in 6 weeks or so. The Champix has done a good job for me. However, I will be glad when I am no longer taking it.
