Hi, I am on D8 of quiting and on D18 of using Champix
I stopped taking champix as I am experiencing some funny side effects. Firstly, I can't sleep (but I know there are many reported cases and it is mentioned in the pamphlet so it was not unextected). What does bother me is the fact I suddenly can't focus on small text, ie reading the newspaper or magazine is alost impossible - all I see is blurry characters. I had 20/20 vision 2 days ago?!?
Bigger fonts (like paragrpahs headings) is no problem. The further the viewing distance the better. Its like my eyes are suddenly all lazy.
I also have the "shakes" in my hands and forearms, which I never had before.
Are these known/common side effect of champix?
I am hoping to see my doctor tomorrow afternoon, but any insight in the meantime will be much appreciated (I also posted this in the Champix Crew group).
