From this study (3 days ago):
Dream symptom began 2 weeks into taking chantix. I stopped taking it after 2 weeks due to such upsetting dreams. This "side effect" (Dhhh) returned suddenly after two years. I was horrified and finally consulted doctor who said 'yes' this return of symptom is possible. 14 months prior to the 'dream' return symptom i began having Anxiety which became more and more distressing. this symptom worsened and finally when the sexual disturbance symptom came on totally abruptly and intensely, I was proscribed the Alprazolam for anxiety. I have seen so many doctors over this time, am becoming depressed and so VERY tired of talking about these symptoms and experiencing these absurd, freaky symptoms. I wish so very much that I had never, never put this chantix in my body. I feel angry and victimized and there seems to be no authentic relief from this life-diminishing complex of physical and emotional suffering. I just want this to go away so I can resume healthy, functional, creative living. Can anybody suggest some actual CURE?!

A strange thing happened when I started taking the Chantix for my smoking cessation...

- Really works to quit smoking
Works great for quitting smoking! The first few weeks you dream in technicolor just like an anti depressant but then that goes away. The only side effect I had was constipation but it was a small price to pay for quitting after 37 years a smoker! I tried hypnotism, patches, etc. but this really work ...
