Hi hereshope

I used champix about four years ago.

I found the sickness would fade away once I’d had something to eat.

You can also feel suck around others that smoke, it is designed to put you off smoking for good.

Stick to it if you can as your doing great.

Well done on being nearly 2 weeks SmokeFree.xx

Hi hereshope, I used Champix to stop smoking and its now been 9 months for me, so stick with it. I suffered sickness with the course and was told to eat something about an hour before taking the morning tablet, it did help a little, but for me they reduced my dosage to half, I was only 6 stone at the time so the original dose was too strong for me. Once they reduced the dose I sailed through the course with no problems. Good luck x

You're doing great. I have crackers or something bland nearby to nibble on. Seems to help when feeling sickly. Im also on champix, cutting down, almost at my quit day.

Welcome hereshope, congrats on 5 days smoke free now, well done! How is the sickness now?

Nausea is the most common side effect from champix, below pinned post is worth a read if not already done so:

Hi, Thank you for all your help. I went back to see the 'nurse' on Wednesday and had the Champix reduced to .50mg, now only getting 1/2 sick. Still feel sickly but its more manageable now. Yup still not smoking, is 5 days now.

Hi, Have stopped for a week now. I'm having a couple of pieces of toast in the morning now before I take the morning tablet, its seem to have worked, but alass took it after one slice this morning so feeling a bit sicky.

The problem now is I've got a lumpy rash to the side of my arm pitts, funny thing is, on one arm its at the front on the other its at the back and a few others spread about. I'll try and get appointment with Doc tomorrow to see if its connected with the Champix. I dont want to stop taking it.
