Been on chanix since 10-09-12. Its now 11-19-12. I have had this explosive diarrhea 3 days a week since i started chanix. The med is working for me. Should i be worried about this?
Hi doriedaisy, I believe diarrhea is a side effect of chantix. Any medication that hits the nicotianic part of the brain can cause diarrhea.
I am not certain if you should be worried or not, but do tell your prescribing physician about this unpleasant (to say the least!) side effect.
Best wishes to you,
