I 'm trying to stay mobile but hve been unable to. It is rpescribed that I take Chantix twice a day for 12 weeks. I have been taking Chantix since 13 March 2014. Have you any words of encoujragement or suggestions as to what else I can do to ease this pain?
Yes, muscle soreness is a side effect. I have been on Chantix more than 4 weeks now-quit smoking after 10 days- and my side effects are still with me. I have tried every-and I do mean every other thing to quit. I am willing to put up with the S.E.'s to stop. It is that important. Your side effects sound a little extreme. Although, I just spent 2 days in bed with abdominal pain. My Pharmacist did say that physical symptoms are more likely to lessen than emotional ones. I would call my MD . Ask questions! Also, drink plenty of water. Some people dehydrate on this and that would make the soreness much worse. Half your body weight in water ounces. I weight 120=60 oz. of water a day.Bless your heart. I hope you are feeling better.
