Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (5 years ago):

  • I see no research on chantix use in narcoleptics, although altered dreams are reported in chantix studies with significant deviation from placebo rates and multiple variables of the sleep cycle are dysfunctional in narcolepsy. All three medications have rare reports of neurological/psychiatric side effects and risks.
    Prescribed med dosing schedule as follows:
    Ritalin LA 40 mg BID
    Chantix 1MG BID
    Deltasone 60mg QD to taper by 10 mg every other day until complete (sig 42 tablets)
    Pt noted to have acute psychosis with suicidal ideation, suicide attempt (nearly successful). Pt prescribed Ritalin approx 6 mos. prior, began Chantix 7 weeks prior (taken as directed), and was on the sixth day of the Deltasone taper.
