So I had my last cigarette on Friday night, a bit early because I was still on the 0.5mg Champix pills but to tell the truth I was feeling ready, cigarettes just weren't doing it for me any more so I decided to just get on with it.
It's been going OK the last couple of days, yes I've had some cravings but I've worked through them and today I started on two blue 1mg pills a day.
Now I don't know if it's the bigger pills or the withdrawal, possibly both, but today is turning out to be a very strange day. Cravings seem easy enough to deal with but there's a lot of other stuff going on.
Firstly I have a headache, in fact it's more of a head "pain" really, just around one temple.
Secondly I keep getting a very odd sensation like I can't swallow, almost like the back of my throat is paralysed, it only lasts a moment but it scares the heck out of me every time.
Finally, and worst of all I feel dizzy and foggy in the head, a sensation that I can best describe as feeling "stoned" but not in an enjoyable way (lets not go into how I know what that feels like, I was young once).
So is this pretty average stuff when you double your Champix dose, or am I special?
