I went nuts and said no way not my testical no no no it is my cancer and I will not remove my Testical.

Good Luck to all of you wit this bad scar.
- Cfs/fibro, migraine
A strange thing happened when I started taking the Chantix for my smoking cessation...
MY MIGRAINES AND TENSION HEADACHES WENT AWAY!!!
As horrible as they were, and as bad as I have prayed for them to go away, I did not even notice that I didn't have the excruciating headaches anymore!!
I stopped taking the chantix and the headaches gradually came back but it took me awhile to make this correlation. Once I did, I started taking the chantix again. it started working immediately... taking the migraines and neck pain away again! Now, I can take 1/2 of a pill every other day and that seems to keep the migraines away! There are side effects and I don't know if it would work for everyone but it sure worked for me!
- 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 worked. I've been smoke free for 9 months now.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 weeks ago):
GI symptoms began as constipation when first starting Chantix, then flatulence became progressively more prononuced and diarrhea began approximately 3 weeks after starting Chantix which progressed to totally liquid, frequent stools with abdominal cramping. Medical testing for pathogens associated with diarrhea was negative one week ago. I stopped Chantix appromixately 2 weeks ago, and symptoms are less urgent and distressing, but flatulance continues and stools remain liquid.
From this study (2 months ago):
I was on Chantix for the "allotted" time through the Air Force. It was not long enough so I stopped taking it (sweating stopped) After about 3 months, I was able to get Chantix through the mail from the military and as soon as I reached a stable blood level (I'm assuming it was because of the level of medication in my system) I started sweating again. I wake up at night drenched in sweat. I can be sitting on the couch during the day and simply think about being hot and I start boiling in my own skin. My skin gets hot to the touch. Is this normal? Thanks for any info you may give.
From this study (2 months ago):
I was administered an immunization D tap shot, along with prescription for chantix on the same visit. Starting chantix the next day. This was a Wednesday by Monday I became very ill with a severe dry hacking cough. Pressure in my eyes, felt tired, tried antibiotics and no relief. Day 10 of chantix, the cough is still strong, severe, my stomach muscles hurt terribly from the intense coughing. I'm grouchy and highly irritable.
