Hi all, Ben to this forum/site and desperately need to stop smoking - health of mind, body not to mention purse lol. Ive tried nicotine replacements (patches fall off, lozenges give me bellyache, nicotine vape just doesn’t cut the mustard), acupuncture, cold turkey and Champix. The Champix gave me the most horrendous nightmares (as opposed to the lively but never unpleasant dreams on 24hour patches) and my daughter developed a sudden urge to run a large carving knife down her arm! On enquiring, I was told these are common side effects and that Champix should never be prescribed for people with diagnosed depression (being treated or not) and neither was it advised for close family. How does Tabex stack up? The distributors of one of the cystisine meds available here were very coy about their product, denying any side effects and insisting that it was an “all natural, herbal product and therefore safe”! Their product was also well over $100 for a month’s supply!
Will read through the posts here carefully but Tabex is looking worth pursuing and I will be asking my doctor before taking it. How have others found it - effective? Side effects? Any cross reactions especially with duloxitine (Cymbalta) or in people with depressive illnesses? Grateful for any comments on this!
