HI All - This may have already been discussed, but I couldn't find anything directly related so I'm asking the question again. I'm just beginning my third month of Chantix. I so far have had a successful quit of 59 days. My Rx is for 12 weeks so I have 4 weeks left. I'm wondering if there should be a tapering off period for the Chantix similar to the tapering on period when first starting the drug. I am concerned about just stopping it abruptly given the potential side effects. I also have clinical depression and I don't want to jeopardize my current stability in that area. I won't be able to see my doctor until December and by that time, it will be too late so any experience you guys may have would be welcome.
