Later that day my daughter called EMS because I started twitching in my legs and arms. it was crazy just could not control them. well after a visit to the ER i found out i had a reaction to the chantix. I also have Multiple scloris for 16 years. I take xanax, lexapro, baclofen and provigil. Doctors seem to think it was a reaction to the provgil. just thought I would post so no one else goes through this. BE CAREFUL!!
