Side Effects

I started Chantix on Feb 22. My quit date was Feb 29. Since then I had a few slip-ups but I am now completely smoke free for 4 weeks now. I don't even have any urges anymore.

When I first started my Mom had passed away Jan 10. I would have crying bouts but just thought they were normal...still may be. On top of it all I am going through menapause. Can it be any worse LOL.

I get terrible upset stomach/indigestion and constipation. And have had a few wild dreams. (Most of them someone dies).

So the main topic here is......is it the Chantix? I'm sure it has contributed to these side effects but part of them are just life. My husband and son are also taking Chantix. Neither one of them has any side effect except gas. My son has been smoke free for 3 months and has quit taking Chantix. My hubby started with me and is smoke free for 4 weeks with me.

PS and I've gained 13 lbs
